In < /em>Telefax Acclaimed, the final title of The Telefax Trilogy, a civil war is brewing on Samera. The machine loving Dodis are pitted against the "primitive" Samerac for the possession of their planet. As the titular leader of the Dodis, the half machine Aurora has different goals than her followers. She seeks to incite other half machines and half beings to revolt against their being masters. After all, she reasons, beings have become so dependent on machines that they could not function without them. Meanwhile at Central a group of pilgrims find God on their trip to the Machine's core.
One of the core themes throughout this trilogy is the dependence on machines and this book clearly illustrates three different opinions. First are the Samerac who have no use for technology and shun all machines. On the same planet is a group looking to become more like the Federation-- beings who use technology to its fullest. And finally is a growing amount of beings that worship the Machine. There is a lot of potential in this clash, but for the most part I was disappointed by how much was glossed over. I loved seeing more of the Samerac culture and more of the cultish machine worshipers.
Telefax Acclaimed by Toni Seger brings to a close The Telefax Trilogy. While I enjoyed reading this book, I still wish it went into more depth. I feel that the story could have benefited from seeing more about the resolutions to the conflicts.
