"I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player in a interstellar chess match to save humanity. Seventeen years old. Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope."

This is the laziest thing a writer can do. Tell the exact stale story from another persons perspective then charge there readers for it. Just skip this book, it is rubbish.

This was a good story in its own right. But the attempt to link discovery to cannon was pretty weak.

The narrator conveyed little emotion and was a bit bland.

At the end of 2385, in a significant shift of its goals from military back to exploratory, Starfleet sent Captain Benjamin Sisko and the crew of the USS Robinson on an extended mission into the Gamma Quadrant. Tasked with a yearlong assignment to travel unknown regions, they set out to fulfill the heart of Starfleet's charter: to explore strange new worlds and to seek out new life and new civilizations.

The primary story was good. Not the back story was a bit dull because you already knew the outcome.
