Within the depths of Deep Space Nine lurks a secret from Cardassia's past that could destroy the entire galaxy…

Station Rage is a Pocket DS9 novel – #13 in the numbered series – written by Diane Carey. Published by Pocket Books, it was first released in November 1995.


From the book jacket
What began as a sticky political problem soon evolves into full-scale chaos for Commander Sisko when a tomb of Cardassian soldiers is discovered on Deep Space Nine. While Sisko searches for a way to return the soldiers to Cardassia, the "bodies" begin to pulsate with life, determined to seek revenge on the enemies now occupying the former Cardassian stronghold.
But as the soldiers launch their attack to cripple the station, and Sisko struggles to regain control, another old enemy plots to destroy the soldiers at any cost – even if it means destroying Deep Space Nine as well!

Memorable quotes[]

"I offer you all my honors, leader of my father, and I hear you whisper. This is the best time of all. Now I hand you all I have built here and turn myself over to you. I will bring you back to influence in this powerful age... and you will do the same for me".


Background information[]

  • An audiobook of this novel was produced by the American Printing House for the Blind. The audiobook was provided on two cassettes.
  • This novel takes place between "The Adversary" and "The Way of the Warrior", as Sisko is referred to as Captain; however, the book jacket blurb (and one erroneous dialogue reference) still refers to him as Commander, and the cover itself depicts his rank as Commander.
