The Hortas of Janus VI are the greatest miners in the galaxy, capable of burning through solid rock the way humanoids move through air. Recruited to help rebuild Bajor's devastated mining industry, the Hortas could provide new hope for the planet's struggling economy.
But when Cardassian raiders abduct the Mother Horta, Commander Sisko finds himself stuck with twenty Horta eggs -- and then the eggs begin to hatch...
While Major Kira leads a desperate rescue mission deep into Cardassian space, Commander Sisko faces a ravaging mass of newborn Hortas -- uncontrollable, indestructible, and eager to consume Deep Space Nine™ itself!

Whee, Horta babies! I enjoy ananthropomorphic aliens, and am always pleased to see Hortas given a major and sentient role. Also, this is the first DS9 novel I've read, so perhaps my surprised delight in the stars' characterisations is unwarranted. Every major character seemed to get plenty of "screen" time (with the exception of Sisko), and a few of our favourite minor ones (Garek, Morn, Rom, Molly, DS9 Computer) appeared as well. Silly, silly title.

I liked this book a lot. It included a guest appearance from a classic Trek antihero, the Horta. Its about when a Horta is recruited by Bajor to help in mining operations to revive its devastated economy. Then the horta is abducted by Cardassians. Sisko is left with 20 horta eggs which hatch, then the fun begins.
