Dark Passions is a duology of mirror universe novels.


2369, stardate 46722

Worf, a victim of the destruction of Khitomer who came to be raised with his adopted brother Duras, ultimately rises as Regent of the Alliance. Duras's protégé, B'Elanna, is named Intendant of Earth. Worf becomes involved with Deanna Troi, the Intendant of Betazed. Annika Hansen, whose parents were killed in a crash, is raised by Tekeny Ghemor and becomes an operative of the Obsidian Order. Dukat is forced to step down as Intendant of Bajor, and is replaced by Kira Nerys, his former chief of security. The two have a tumultuous past, based in part on Dukat's affair with Kira Meru.

Under orders from Enabran Tain, Annika assassinates Duras. Privateer Ben Sisko delivers a miniature Iconian portal to Intendant Kira, who uses the device to move herself and several operatives across vast distances undetected. She also uses her influence to get herself appointed as Overseer of all trade in the former Terran Empire, a very lucrative position. She tries to cement her power by ingratiating herself to Regent Worf, though she makes enemies of several other Intendants, notably B'Elanna. Troi tries to have Kira assassinated by Annika, though the human woman spares Kira, playing her toward her own ends. She becomes Kira's most trusted advisor and even functions in the role of Overseer, though Kira keeps much of the wealth and power for herself. Annika later allies with B'Elanna, and Troi pretends to ally with Kira, though her duplicity is later discovered and Kira assassinates Troi. She implicates the Andorians, and in rage, Worf brings about the genocide of the entire Andorian species. Ghemor becomes leader of the Cardassian Union, and Gowron becomes chancellor of the Klingon Empire, though both men are still subservient to Regent Worf.

Tora Ziyal is captured by the Obsidian Order and used to discredit her (illegitimate) father. Kira begins to suspect Annika of betrayal, and the human woman accidentally reveals her true intentions. She is made mute and sold into slavery, though she ends up as a member of Kathryn Janeway's team at Utopia Planitia, allowing her to contact her ally B'Elanna. B'Elanna rescues and heals Annika before sending her to steal Kira's Iconian gateway. Annika then blackmails Kira using the portal and her knowledge of Kira's illicit actions (especially Troi's death) to force her to step down as Overseer and nominate Annika for the position. With the help of several powerful allies, she takes command of a ship, Voyager, which she crews with Janeway and her team, recently freed from slavery.

Duras and the events surrounding him are contradicted by the chronology and storyline shown in most other books.
