It seemed too good to be true...When marauding ships attack the Andromeda Ascendant, the Andromeda crew, desperate to save their ship, slipstream to a world called Festival, which fends off their mysterious attackers and welcomes the crew with open arms. The crew couldn't be happier. Festival wishes to join the Commonwealth, and, as its name implies, is a safe haven, a perfect place for relaxing and indulging in life's finer pleasures.But there's something not quite right about Festival. Captain Dylan Hunt is suspicious of the large number of armed soldiers who are ostensibly providing security for their visit. And when his crew finds a big underground bash, the revelers seem more tense than happy. Dylan and crew uncover a diabolical scheme seething beneath the planet's utopian façade: Festival's planetary government is really a powerful militant regime bent on forcing neighboring worlds to join the new Commonwealth against their own volition.Before the Andromeda crew can do anything about Festival's strong-arm tactics, they receive a distress call from a renowned peace ambassador whose ship is being attacked by space pirates. In a bloody battle, Dylan and his crew defeat the attacking pirates. After the smoke clears, they learn from the ambassador the rulers of Festival don't just want to join the Commonwealth . . . they want to rule it! Suddenly, Festival seems like the Andromeda's worst nightmare. Captain Hunt and the crew have their hands full escaping from the clutches of Festival's power-hungry government, and trying to keep the peace within the Commonwealth.
Reviews:
  • Wiliniett
It was okay, but not very exciting. Set in Season 1 (we still have Rev Bem with us), it details Dylan's attempts to get another system on board with the new Commonwealth. Unfortunately, we don't really care about these worlds, or even the Andromeda crew, all that much. While the characterizations aren't awful, Dylan is a bit wooden and Andromeda/Rommie is oddly off, and I don't think the author quite understands what Vedrans are. You'll want to skip over Dylan's two speeches.

I'd have to say that this book is a must for fans of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. The plot is pretty solid, although by the end of the book I was left with some nagging complaints about how things wrapped up so quickly. The characters are very "in" and each is given a chance to speak. If you're a Rev Bem fan, this might not be the book for you, though. He's used quickly and not often. The main point that really bothered me about this novel was the use of Andromeda and Rommie. There wasn't much separating the android from her holo-image and her screen image. I felt that they were all the same entity, which isn't what Andromeda's about. I thought Rommie was acting a little strange throughout the novel, but her oddness is explained by the end, so don't be too put off.

Another great thing about this book was the way Dylan Hunt was written. I found him to be charismatic, enjoyable, and the perfect man to bring back the High Guard. He seemed a bit different on the show portrayed by Sorbo--but I really enjoyed the way he was written in the book. This was my first Andromeda book, so I might be a little bias, but it's worth a read if you love the show.

The novel was well worth the price, as it helped me to complete my collection of the Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda series of books. It arrived in pristine condition with extremely fast shipping. Triple A+

I grew up on Star Trek, watching the Andromeda show (as well as other sci fi) so this was my kind of read.

I felt the end was a little abrupt considering everything they went through in the series, and I don't think the leader of Festival would have given up so easily, but all things considered it was highly entertaining. I do wish the "malfunction" of the Andromeda ship's avatar, "Rommie" didn't happen, b/c I would have liked that idea to have been explored a bit more.

I do love that there are not just men on the crew, and it's not just one (token) female either. The Andromeda and Maru have a really strong female pilot who isn't afraid to "get some" while on shore leave ;)

Definitely checking out other stories by this author.

"The Attitude of Silence" was a decent Andromeda tie-in novel, and certainly much better than the travesty that was the previous one ("Through The Looking Glass"). "The Attitude of Silence" was better researched, had a story that fit well into the timeline (it seems to take place between the late Season One episodes "It Makes A Lovely Light" and "Its Hour Has Come `Round At Last"), and the characterisation for the most part was pretty solid. This isn't to say that there weren't a few problems-Trance's looking at probabilities was a little too mathematical, Rev Bem did little besides pray a lot, and Mariotte didn't differentiate enough between the personalities of Rommie and the Andromeda AI and hologram. While the research was there for the most part, Mariotte seems to have overlooked the fact that Vedrans are blue and have four legs, and are decidedly not human, and that Sani Nax Rifati was a Vedran who lived some 5800 years previous (yes, this is a fairly important plot point). There are a few other nitpicks that distracted (which the editor should have caught), but none of them were glaring beyond the Vedran one. Overall, "The Attitude of Silence" was a pretty solid read that captured the spirit of the show, even though it may not be quite the love-letter to the show and its fans that "Waystation" was.
