As the Rebellion plans to strike the Alliance with a newly constructed fleet, Intendant Kira plots to take back Bajor - and more.

Publisher's descriptionEdit

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: One fallen dictator's struggle to regain her power leads to the discovery of a bold rebel plan for a decisive military strike that will bring down the Alliance, once and for all. But while Kira Nerys navigates the tangle of politics, sex, and military intrigue that she believes will allow her to reclaim her station, cracks form in the rebel leadership, leading to a showdown that will change the course of the mirror universe.
