In the aftermath of a war that brought the Alpha Quadrant to the brink of destruction, Starbase Deep Space Nine—the galaxy’s nexus of scientific and military intrigue—is once more the flashpoint of impending Armageddon as a surprise attack cripples the station, killing hundreds and threatening the fragile new peace.

Colonel Kira Nerys and the survivors—together with several controversial new officers—are all who stand against the outbreak of a new war and a terrible doom tied to the unborn child of Captain Benjamin Sisko.

Elsewhere, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise make a startling discovery . . .one that will affect the destiny of an entire civilization and forever change the lives of those aboard Deep Space Nine.

“What have we got?” Kira asked.

“Ensign ch’Thane found him at Quark’s,” Ro said. “He’s making his statement now.”

Kira couldn’t help a sneer as they turned into the holding-cell area. A peaceful Jem’Hadar. Right. At leas she knew now why she’d felt watched, but that small relief was heavily overshadowed by thoughts of what he could have been doing all this time; he had to have been hiding on the station since the attack.

“—and that Odo sent him.”

They stopped in front of the only occupied cell, Ro nodding at the guard, excusing her with a few words of direction—but Kira barely heard them. She could only stare dumbly at the soldier, overwhelmed with feelings of loos, of anger and disbelief—and a tiny seed of hope.

Odo . . .
