Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 48543.2: The first joint scientific venture between Bajor and Cardassia is to be a communications relay satellite placed at the Gamma Quadrant end of the wormhole, and two Cardassian scientists – with an observer from the Obsidian Order not far behind – arrive on DS9 to deliver the payload. As if the unease about the new Bajoran-Cardassian peace accord isn’t enough, Vedek Yarka arrives from Bajor to inform Sisko – still regarded as the Emissary in Bajoran culture – that prophecy predicts the Cardassians’ presence will result in calamity, not the least of which will be the closure of the wormhole. As the mission progresses, it all starts adding up as prophesied, including the appearance of a comet which could damage or destroy the wormhole.
