The Way Of The Warrior

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 49011.4: As the crew of Deep Space 9 try to prepare for a possible invasion by the Dominion, a fleet of Klingon ships decloak and take “shore leave” on the station. The Cardassians have sealed their borders after a rumored coup on their homeworld, and Klingon ships are stopping ships leaving Bajoran space to search them for Changelings. To get answers, Sisko calls on the aid of Lt. Commander Worf, who has been among the Klingon clerics on Boreth following the Enterprise’s destruction, and is considering resigning Starfleet. Worf learns that the Klingons plan to invade Cardassia on the suspicion that the new civilian government is run by the Founders. Sisko uses Garak to warn the Cardassians, and Gul Dukat manages to save the Detepa Council as the Klingon fleet advances. But the Defiant is needed to get them to safety – and its aid will have far-reaching consequences for the Federation and the Klingon Empire.

The Visitor

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: It’s several decades in the future. Jake Sisko is an old man, living in his grandfather’s house on the Louisiana bayou. On a rainy night, a visitor arrives – a young woman who aspires to be a writer. Jake tells her the story of why he hasn’t written in years. Long ago, he was on a trip with his father in the Defiant when an accident in the engine room caused his father to disappear before his eyes. Yet when Ben Sisko began appearing to him in the flesh, for a few minutes at a time, with years between appearances, it became clear that he was not dead, but trapped in subspace. Jake went on with his life, married, became a famous writer – but was forever haunted by his father’s disappearance, and became obsessed with rescuing him. Now, Jake has finally found a solution…but what will it cost him?

Hippocratic Oath

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 49066.5: Bashir and O’Brien, in the runabout Rubicon, are on their way home to the station after a routine biosurvey in the Gamma Quadrant when O’Brien detects a subspace magneton pulse which could indicate a ship in trouble. They track it to a planet thought to be uninhabited, where the runabout hits a plasma field and is forced to crash-land. The two are captured by a group of Jem’Hadar. But these Jem’Hadar are different – their leader, Goran’Agar, is actually free of their race’s genetic addiction to the enzyme known as Ketracel-white, and has brought the others here in hopes of freeing them as well from the “white” and the Dominion. Goran’Agar forces Bashir to work on a cure for the addiction, while O’Brien tries to convince the doctor to escape with him. Meanwhile, on the station, Worf finds he has a lot to learn about the way things are done in his new home, as he clashes with Odo over a smuggling investigation.

Indiscretion

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: A smuggler friend of Kira’s contacts her with news that some wreckage has been found which may be the remnants of a ship that was carrying Bajoran prisoners and a Cardassian crew – a ship that was lost during the occupation, and that was carrying another friend of Kira’s. Kira is about to go and investigate when the trip is postponed slightly so that someone can join her: Gul Dukat. On the mission, Dukat reveals that he too has someone he is concerned about on the ship, a Bajoran woman with whom he had an affair. Kira learns also that Dukat’s half-Bajoran daughter was also on the ship, and that Dukat’s personal mission is to find her and kill her. Meanwhile, Kasidy Yates is not pleased by Sisko’s reaction to her news that she may be taking a job that will let her stay on the station.

Rejoined

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 49195.5: A Trill science team arrives on Deep Space 9 to conduct field tests on experimental techniques for creating artificial wormholes. The leader of the team is Dr. Lenara Kahn, a joined Trill whose symbiont was once borne by the wife of one of Dax’s former hosts, Torias. Trill society has a strict taboo against “reassociation” with past lovers, for which the penalty is exile – meaning that both symbionts will die with their current hosts. Therefore Dax and Lenara must be careful about interacting…but despite their best efforts they find themselves reawakening old emotional ties. What will Dax risk in order to be with her former love?

Little Green Men

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: As Nog prepares to leave at last for Starfleet Academy, Quark receives a long-awaited payment from his cousin Gaila (the one with the moon): a shuttle of his very own. He offers to take Nog to Earth in it, with Rom piloting – but of course Quark has ulterior motives: smuggling illegal kemosite to Orion on the way back. However, due to the ship’s having been sabotaged by Gaila, the three Ferengi (plus one stowaway) end up going through a time warp to Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. But far from trying to go home while leaving the timeline intact, Quark has other plans …to stay and take over the Earth.

Starship Down

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 49263.5: The Defiant is on a mission into the Gamma Quadrant to meet with a representative from the Karemma, who have been trading with the Federation, using the Ferengi as intermediaries, and who protest the exorbitant fees and taxes, which are actually the result of a misunderstanding perpetuated by Quark. But then two Jem’Hadar ships arrive to punish the Karemma for meeting with the Federation. When the Defiant goes after the Jem’Hadar, who pursue the Karemma ship into the atmosphere of a gas giant, it is attacked and heavily damaged. Bashir and Dax are sealed into a turbolift shaft, Kira cares for a gravely injured Sisko, Worf learns a thing or two about command, and Quark and the Karemma representative must defuse an unexploded torpedo that has struck the ship.

The Sword is a relic of Klingon history, stolen over 1000 years ago by the Hurk. Together, Kor, Dax, and Worf go to the planet where the cloth was found, and manage to find the Sword. But they have been followed there by Toral, the last member of the House of Duras, who once tried to seize power, and whose life was spared at the time by Worf. Kor, Dax, and Worf must journey through the caverns to escape, as ambition begins to turn Kor and Worf against each other.
