Background information Edit

  • The two novels were later reprinted as part of the Twist of Faith omnibus.
  • When asked why the crew of the USS Enterprise were also featured in Avatar, Marco Palmieri commented: "It's fun. It's a bonus. It's relevant to the story, and it has echoes of "Emissary", which is fitting for what I think as a new beginning for DS9". [1]
  • Palmieri would later regret releasing Avatar as two books instead of one, noting that "it was plotted as two novels, and I really believed the execution would bear that out […] but I can see now that it should have been a single book.". (Voyages of Imagination, p. 259)
  • The cover art by Cliff Nielsen forms a diptych.
