The Aftermath Continues . . .

More than two years have passed since the destruction of the original Deep Space 9. In that time, a brand-new, state-of-the-art starbase has replaced it, commanded by Captain Ro Laren. But the crew and residents of the former station continue to experience the repercussions of its loss.

Quark still misses Morn. The Lurian was his best customer—and his friend. Morn survived the explosion that claimed DS9, and later left Bajor without a word and did not return. Quark enlisted a private detective to track him down, and she claims to be hot on his trail. Yet the barkeep distrusts the woman he hired, and when she too goes missing, his suspicions skyrocket.

At the same time, Kira Nerys emerges from the wormhole after being caught inside it when it collapsed two years earlier. She arrives on the new DS9 to discover Altek Dans already there. While inside the Celestial Temple, Kira lived a different life in Bajor’s past, where she fell in love with Altek. Why have the Prophets moved him forward in time, and why have They brought him and Kira together?
