Has anyone else read any of these books. I just finished pt 1 and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on it. I thought it was pretty good, a little weird in places, but enjoyable.

I've read 'em both. I thought they were kind of a fun read. The author did a pretty good job of making the "Eugenics Wars" something that we wouldn't have noticed. :)

He put a lot of inside jokes in there, too. I think it was in Part One that Roberta Lincoln went undercover as "Dr. Veronica Neary."

The cameo appearances by Eygor and Jamie Summers were a bit much, though. :)

I read the first two, havn't read the third one about Ceti Alpha Five yet.

It was pretty neat how the author tied so much together; I especially liked the Area-51/Ferringi references (though I'm not a big fan of any of DS9).

I think that Kahn's doomsday weapon was pretty lame, though.

The Flesh eating bacteria missiles or Morningstar?

Morningstar. The bacteria is fairly plausible. I just can't imagine that he'd inspire much fear calling up the UN and saying, "Bow before me or I'll destroy the ozone layer! Bwahahaha!"
