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!

It Was Okay

I got this audiobook since the late Rene Auberjonis passed away back in December of last year, I thought it would be nice to hear him reprise his role as “Odo”. I thought he did alright capturing “Quark” compared to the rest of the DS9 crew, but nonetheless still a good job. The story was “meh”.

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.

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.

Worth a purchase

While admittedly this does fall into the trapping of the ending being predictable, it is still nevertheless compelling and the late Rene Auberjonois does bring a good narration of the story to the table along with a good impression of Quark.

It's pretty dark and grim in areas and the race introduced from the Gamma Quadrant are certainly a credible if a little cliché threat. Cliché isn't necessarily bad however as the threat to Deep Space Nine is still very effective.

A story worth sinking your teeth into if you are fans of Deep Space Nine.

Frustrating

Imagine watching an episode of DS9 where every character is voiced by Odo. Now imagine watching that episode with your eyes closed. Now imagine spending an Audible credit for the pleasure.

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.

Nana Visitors narration makes this a must

This is a must for any true Deep Space Nine fan, Visitors narration is textured and delivers when needed. I actually prefer listening to the audio version than the actual pilot.
