Emissary tries to make some hay out of this in the two scenes between Sisko and Picard (included mostly so Deep Space Nine could get some proximity-mojo from the then-airing TNG).

Emissary tries to make some hay out of this in the two scenes between Sisko and Picard (included mostly so Deep Space Nine could get some proximity-mojo from the then-airing TNG), and it’s not one of the pilot’s stronger gambits; Sisko does barely restrained resentment well enough, but there’s no real place for that. The people we meet here (most of whom aren’t actually people in the traditional sense) aren’t uniformly happy, or satisfied with their jobs, or excited to be working together. Sisko isn’t the only angry member of the cast, and the tension these various frustrations create when they collide against each other shows promise.

Narrated by Nana Visitor. Commander Benjamin Sisko is just recovering from the death of his wife when he is assigned command over the former Cardassian, but new Federation space station, Deep Space Nine™. This space station is strategically located not only because of its orbit about Bajor, but also because of its proximity to the only known stable wormhole in the galaxy.

And, quite the opposite of TOS and The Next Generation, DS9 featured characters that butted heads often and loudly. Over the course of seven years, Nana Visitor transformed Major Kira into an unforgettable figure, at once smart, opinionated, loyal, quick-triggered, sexy, loving and formidable.

I got this expecting it to be nothing more than a script/screenplay of the DS9 pilot. Oh, how wrong I was. I trusted the good reviews, and so should you! This book is well written, and does a fantastic job of putting you inside the minds and emotions of the characters. It provides nice details and a little back-story too. I enjoyed every second of this book, and I've seen the DS9 Pilot plenty of times.

If you are a DS9 fan, this is required reading.

Very in depth look at all the major characters of this fine series. My favorite of all the Star Trek genre. And Voyager a really close second. Well worth reading.

couldn't put it down! great expansion on the first episode of DS9! i recommend watching the episode first, as this book goes into the thoughts of the DS9 crew. it may leave the episode a little 2 dimensional.
Velellan
I am a big fan of Star Trek and I have seen all the series and episodes. The pilot episode of DS9 was great but I like this novelization better. Highly recommend.
Milleynti
I really do like this product which is why I'm giving a 5 star rating since I have no complaints about just the fact the product does what it's supposed to do, and I would recommend this product to anyone who wants it.

Deep Space Nine #1 "Emissary" brings forth the beginning of Star Trek's best and most controversial series to the franchise. I say controversial in that at times, this series whether when it was airing or on DVD and in print it seems to be treated as the red headed stepchild of Star Trek. This doesn't matter though, because in the end, the very principles that make up Star Trek Deep Space Nine; its character conflicts and its dealing with certain aspects not dealt with on the other series ultimately makes it the most beloved by the fans that have stuck with it.
For several years now, when Pocket Books and Paramount have needed an author to novelize a script for one of the movies or television episodes, J.M. Dillard has been the "go to" author for most of them and she has performed brilliantly in every effort. "Emissary" was her third novelization and one of her best. She perfectly captured the characterizations at this pivotal time in the series, the beginning.
As with all of her other novelizations, she does an outstanding and commendable job of not only bringing to print what was on screen but adding personal thoughts to and "between the scenes on screen" scenes.
Of course, beyond the great amount of praise and credit for J.M. Dillard for this novelization there is an even higher amount of accolades due to Michael Piller for the teleplay and basic story being written by himself and Rick Berman.
The cover art for "Emissary" is right on for this particular novel as it displays an entire cast picture which at the time of this novelizations release was very helpful.
The premise:
"Emissary" is of course the novelization of Star Trek Deep Space Nine's pilot episode. Here is where we meet the characters that will take us, the fans, through the entire gamut of emotions for several years to come.
Commander Benjamin Sisko who has been stationed on Earth since the tragic events of Wolf 359 in which his ship, the USS Saratoga, where he was serving on as first officer, participated in the defense of Earth from the Borg. As with most starships on that dreadful day, the Saratoga was destroyed and Sisko was able to escape with his son Jake, but his wife, Jennifer lost her life. As any man would, he's been suffering that loss since that day. As he has accepted the command of Deep Space Nine, he's also considering leaving Starfleet.
With that catalyst in mind, "Emissary" begins with Commander Sisko's arrival and the arrival of the rest of the cast to include introductions to Major Kira Nerys, Odo and Quark. Sisko also has a fateful meeting with Kai Opaka, the Bajoran spiritual leader.
What follows from there is nothing less than the best pilot episode of all of the series and one of J.M. Dillard's best novelizations. I highly recommend this novelization for your Star Trek collection. {ssintrepid}

The story opens as Benjamin Sisko and his son Jake arrive at Sisko's new assignment on Deep Space Nine. Sisko is ambivelent about his new Star Fleet posting and what greets him at the station does not encourage him to stay. The Cardassians had stripped both the planet and station of everything of worth before their departure. As the DS9 crew began to assemble and attempt to restore order to the situation each was struck by the enormity of the problem(s) that faced them. Then, depending on your point of view, either the Celestral Temple (Bajoran heaven) or a stable wormhole was discovered near the station. Whatever it was called it was a pathway to the Gamma quadrant, a short cut that would place Bajor at the crossroads of major traderoutes. It would also make Bajor a highly coveted prize that many civilizations would be willing to fight over.

If this story sounds familiar it is because this is a novelization of the first episode of DS9. It follows the televised episode quite faithfully but also provides lots of background information and goes into much deeper into what each character is thinking during the action than is possible in a television program. For fans of the series it is great to get these backstories and for those new to the series who may have missed to pilot episode this provides the basic premises of the series.
Eighteen years since it aired, Emissary is probably still the best of the five Star Trek pilot episodes. Based on Michael Piller's early draft of "Emissary", J.M Dillard does an excellent job of novelizing "Emissary", the pilot episode of DS9. Some of the scenes not in the episode is a flashback to the events of the Setlik III (TNG: "The Wounded") by O'Brien, Picard making a vow to be an anonymous benefactor to both Sisko and Jake, scenes featuring Keiko and Molly O'Brien, Bashir mentioning his error in confusing a postganglionic nerve with a preganglionic fiber in his exams (later mentioned in the series in "Q-Less"), Sisko contemplating about returning to Earth to teach and several scenes with Jake and Nog.
