Six years later, with the Federation losing ground in its war against the Dominion, the galaxy's greatest smugglers, including the beautiful and enigmatic Vash, rendezvous on Deep Space 9. Their objective: a fabled lost orb of the Prophets unlike any other, rumored to be the key to unlocking a second wormhole in Bajoran Space, a second Celestial Temple.
Almost immediately, mysterious events plague the station: Odo arrests Quark for murder; Jake and Nog lead Chief O'Brien to an errie holosuite in a section of the station that's not on any schematic: and a Cardassian scientist whom even the Obsidian Order once feared makes an unexpected appearance. With all these events tied to a never-before-told story of the Cardassian withdrawal, Captain Benjamin Sisko faces the most dangerous challenge of his career. Unless he can uncover the secret of the lost Orb.

Why make an audio version of the first book to a trilogy and not make the other two? For someone like me who only listens to audio books it is highly irritating and I see no point in listening. Waste of money unless after all this time they finally plan on making the next two.
Yes, especially if yoour a truck driver or are on a cross country trip or vacation beach!
The search for the orbs!.
Outstanding performance. Joe Morton is one of my favorite sci-fi actors!
Yes! Outbound leg of my route is 3.5 hours of highway driving.
Where are the rest of the Millenium series as audiobooks? Why aren't more Star Trek books made into Audiobooks? They are better (more positive) than the Star Wars dark side heros.
The storyline of this book falls neatly into place in the canon of DS9. It fleshes out a portion of the saga, adding detail and nuance. The characters are basically true to form. It's an interesting story. As such, I enjoyed it very much.
The narrator's attempts to voice the various characters were just plain atrocious and a major detraction from the book. Odo's voice was grating to the point where it was difficult to listen to it. Sisko, Kira, Dr. Bashir, Worf, all bore absolutely no resemblance of any kind to the TV characters. Only Quark had any resonance. The narrator would have been better off not trying.
They can keep the sound effects too. They add nothing to the audiobook.
It's a shame that such a fine story is very nearly spoiled by the poor narration.
always had the time to read a book the old fashion way but things change. Now i can be productive and still enjoy my book time.
Yes, story kept my attention
The search for the orbs
