Publisher's Summary

When a troop of alien warriors demands the return of an imprisoned comrade - a prisoner no one on Deep Space Nine knows anything about - Commander Benjamin Sisko has a deadly fight on his hands. Under sudden attack from the heavily armed warriors, Sisko and his crew struggle desperately to repel the invaders and save the lives of everyone on board. Meanwhile, a strange device from the Gamma Quadrant has shifted Ferengi barkeeper Quark and Security Chief Odo three days into the future to a silent Deep Space Nine littered with the bodies of their fallen crewmates. To save the station they must discover what caused the invasion to take place - and find a pathway back through time itself.

Super!

This is one of my favorite Star Trek books of all time, in any of the series. The audiobook production heightens the excitement of the actual book. Even though I knew the story well, I couldn't stop listening. Rene Auberjonois gives a superb performance.

Yes, Yes! This is the one Deep Space Nine audiobook you should definitely buy!

Ahhh, so-so

Sorry, Richard from Texas, this was NOT "super", IMO. It was ok. Rene Auberjonois was very good - earned five stars. But the storyline was trite. I DID listen to the whole book, but it was certainly not compelling. I am a long-time fan of Star Trek (as is my entire family), but I was left wanting more plot - more story - more excitement. No, I do not recommend this book.

action from start to finish

A very enjoyable audiobook. I loved the reader and the story line was first rate star trek. There were many tense moments portrayed in this audiobook that enhanced the listening experience. Just a good time.

It's Star Trek so it's bound to be good.

Would you listen to Star Trek, Deep Space Nine: Fallen Heroes (Adapted) again? Why?

Yes. It was a slow start but after the first two chapters, I didn't want to turn it off.

Who was your favorite character and why?

In this book, it would say Quark because he shows all facets of himself in the book.

What does Rene Auberjonois bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes, Rene does a great job narrating this book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved at all the death scenes for the main characters, especially Captain Sisko.

Any additional comments?

LOVE IT!

Action Packed Star Trek Adventure

What made the experience of listening to Star Trek, Deep Space Nine: Fallen Heroes (Adapted) the most enjoyable?

This was an action packed adventure, made even better by the performance of Rene Auberjonois.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Trek, Deep Space Nine: Fallen Heroes (Adapted)?

All of the major characters face some sort of challenge. The resolution was even better.

Have you listened to any of Rene Auberjonois’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rene Auberjonois does a fantastic job narrating this book. First, he is a great actor. Secondly, his character of Odo is a main character and he plays him just like the show. He was fantastic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, but to share those moments, would be spoilers and I don't want to do that.

Any additional comments?

All around great audio experience. The author did a fantastic job.

It felt kind of like fan fiction

Did Rene Auberjonois do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

If anything I would have preferred if he hadn't tried to do voices. For many of the characters the voices were awkward. The Odo voice was great though and overall the narration was good.

Any additional comments?

This story felt too much like fan fiction. Much of the dialogue and inner thoughts of the characters didn't fit with the way we know the characters in the series. It just felt a little off in that way. It was also quite short. The publisher has done a very bad job of providing audiobook versions of the Star Trek novels; nearly all of their audiobooks are abridged and there are no audiobook versions of the newer novels. This book and their lack of support for audiobooks overall is disappointing.

Gory and Violent

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, it was extremetly dark, violent and morbid. It takes you in detail through the deaths of many of your favorite characters. It was like a Star Trek bad dream.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dafydd ab Hugh again?

No. I did not like the the wording and writing style were odd. The story itself was extremely negative and gruesome.

Have you listened to any of Rene Auberjonois’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't, but his performance was very enjoyable.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No. It would definitely be rated R if it was made into a movie.

Any additional comments?

It was a very disappointing audiobook. This seems like a story that was killed by the censors for being too gory for the series, so they wrote a book instead.

Fallen Heroes Review

This audiobook was well constructed and the abridged version contained the story well. It was a bit worrying

when the audiobook was only 2hr 9 min in length compared to the novel but it held through to be an entertaining piece of fiction.
