DS9 Season 12.gif

Those familiar with the Star Trek novel line will know that the Destiny trilogy, by David Mack, was a seismic event. It incorporated characters from across the entire Star Trek universe, and its events changed that universe irrevocably. But because of the same editorial upheaval that sent the DS9 novels into hiatus in 2009, the familiar DS9 characters did not appear in that trilogy, with the exception of the newly promoted Ezri Dax.

 

Consequently, readers have always wanted to know what Sisko, Vaughn, Kira, Ro and their friends were doing during those momentous events. Some details were revealed in the later novels Zero Sum Game and Rough Beasts of Empire, but most of it remained unknown. Once again, I decided to answer that question for myself.

 

The first half continues my storylines from Seasons 10 and 11, while also adapting various storylines from the seminal Federation politics novel Articles of the Federation, by Keith RA DeCandido, and applying those stories to the DS9 characters. The second half reveals the actions of the DS9 characters during the catastrophic Borg Invasion of 2381, woven around Dax's storyline from the Destiny trilogy, and including guest appearances by characters from The Next Generation, Voyager, Titan, Enterprise, SCE, Klingon Empire and more.
