In the far future, the Dax symbiont faces death when its host is killed.
Following an accident with the transwarp core on a Federation ship in the Gamma Quadrant, the Dax symbiont is left in stasis. With chances of reaching the Trill homeworld slim, Dax ponders its brief existence without host, and prepares for oblivion. Captain Grayson's ship rushes towards the Bajoran wormhole, and Dax unknowingly enters into a communion with a disembodied Benjamin Sisko. Helping out the Old Man once more, Grayson's ship emerges at the Trill homeworld instead of Federation Portal 1 in the Bajoran system, in time for Dax to be returned to the symbiont pool.
