Love and Hate. Faith and Doubt. Guilt and Innocence. Peace and War.
Few television series have embraced this symphony of contradictions of the epic scale of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. From the vastness of space to the darkest depths of the soul, from the clash of empires to the struggles of conscience, from the crossroads of the galaxy to the convergence of hearts -- that seven-year journey was both universal and personal, challenging its audience with stories and characters that redefined Star Trek's Human Adventure for all time.
PATHWAYS TRAVELED... The widowed father struggling to rebuild his shattered life, reborn as a religious icon to millions of believers.

- Andrew J. Robinson's short story acts as a sequel to his DS9 novel, A Stitch in Time and The Dream Box, a two-person play about Garak and Julian Bashir, written and performed by Robinson and Alexander Siddig. The play was performed at Star Trek conventions they were appearing at together over a number of months. When Robinson was asked if he wanted to novelize it, or turn it into a short story for Pocket Books, he preferred to write something new that followed it. The essential facts, including the shock spoiler climax of the play, are raised in "The Calling".
