Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: A battered old-style Bajoran lightship emerges from the wormhole with one passenger: Akorem Laan, a famous poet who left Bajor 200 years ago. Since he was the first person to meet the Prophets, and since they healed him, Akorem believes himself to be the Emissary, a role that Sisko is all too happy to relinquish to him. Akorem begins trying to lead Bajor back to the old days, when their caste system, the d’jarras, determined the careers people followed. Confusion results, and Sisko can only conclude that his mission to bring Bajor into the Federation has failed. Meanwhile, O’Brien tries to readjust his life when Keiko returns, pregnant with their second child.
