Daniel sees a vision of an angel while he's awake and with some other men, who don't see the vision but run and hide for some reason. The angel tells him about a king that will rise and will do whatever he wants, there's a lot of detail about alliances with some kings and destroying others, apparently bringing about the end of the world, but Daniel's people will be fine.

Daniel has some dreams that he has to get someone else to interpret for him (the angel Gabriel apparently), he sees various beasts that represent kingdoms that will be destroyed or will destroy others and will eventually be sorted out by God. Apparently these visions are of a time a long time from then. The whole thing makes Daniel ill.

Daniel prays to God about how bad his people have been and then Gabriel pops back and says that the people have seventy weeks to mend their ways.

The king describes the dream he had, and Daniel's interpretation is that it means that the king will be driven out of society and will live with the animals for seven years, which happens and at the end of it he returns to his kingdom and begins to praise God.

The king's son is now king and he sees a hand write on the wall while he is drunk, I think that's an easily explained event... Daniel is asked to interpret the writing and even though he says it means that the king has been found wanting, the king honours Daniel before dying that day.

The men who work with Daniel try to dig up dirt on him but can't find anything to use against him so make the king write a law that forbids the people from worshipping anyone or anything other than the king. Daniel is too devout to stop his praying schedule even for a temporary law that has a penalty of death. But it's OK because God protects Daniel from the lions he is thrown to and the people trying to get him killed are thrown to the lions and killed.

Daniel starts with a scientific experiment to prove that a diet of fruit and vegetables is healthier than one of wine and royal meat delicacies. Unsurprisingly, those that eat the vegetarian diet are healthier than those eating the delicacies after 10 days. So after that everyone is given the veggie diet. Finally, something I can agree with the bible on.

Daniel and his friends from Judah are cleverer than all the other candidates for working for the king so they are all chosen to serve the king.

The king has a disturbing dream and demands that all the magicians and other wise men tell him what it means, I think we had this plot before. He orders that all the wise men should be killed because they say that only the gods can interpret dreams so they can't help him. They are saved because God tells Daniel what the king's dream meant in a dream, and for telling the king what the dream meant Daniel and his friends get a higher position in the king's household.

The King builds a big statue like he saw in his dream and makes everyone worship it, Daniel's friends refuse because it's against their religion. The king has them thrown into a furnace that kills the men who threw them in but doesn't kill the guys sentenced to death. This event convinces the king that their God is worth following so orders everyone to follow him under pain of death - getting tips from God there.

I've been away for a few days so I'm posting a few days worth of reading at once, sorry for the f-list spam!
