Publisher's description[edit | edit source]
From solicitations: An alien artifact abandoned by the Cardassians at the end of their occupation of Bajor has been reactivated, sending waves of temporal distortion through DS9. This causes the crew to experience leaps into alternate timelines and alerts the Cardassians and the artifact's creators of its whereabouts. It's a race for control of the very fabric of time!
Summary[edit | edit source]
Cardassian agents covertly return to Bajor to retrieve an ancient artifact hidden when the occupation came to an end. When touched, the artifact emits waves of temporal distortion, creating disturbances across the Federation and alerting the artifact's creators, an ancient race eager to reclaim what was once their most feared weapon.

Background information[edit | edit source]
- This story did not explicitly state a time frame for the primary, unaltered chain of events, however, it seems to have taken place in early 2372, sometime after Sisko was promoted to captain in "The Adversary", but before the arrival of Worf on the station in "The Way of the Warrior".
- The artist depicted two of Bajor's moons in some panels but it wasn't specified which of Bajor's multiple moons these were.
