Love and Hate. Faith and Doubt. Guilt and Innocence. Peace and War.
Few television series have embraced this symphony of contradictions on 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 a 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 TRAVELLED... The widowed father struggling to rebuild his shattered life, reborn as a religious icon to millions of believers.
CHALLENGES CONQUERED... The resistance fighter who aided her former oppressors in their struggle for liberation and emerged as the leader she never imagined herself becoming.
TRUTHS REVEALED... The orphaned alien whose quest for his own identity became the salvation of a quadrant.
Rediscover this extraordinary saga in a landmark collection of tales that confronts assumptions, divulges secrets, and asks as many questions as it answers. These stories, entwined with familiar episodes, reveal the world of Deep Space Nine anew as told by
Christopher L. Bennett * Keith R.A. DeCandido * Heather Jarman * Jeffrey Lang
An anthology of ten short stories set throughout the DS9 television series and beyond.
"Ha'mara" is set in the early first season, shortly after "Emissary".
"The Orb of Opportunity" is set mid-third season, and includes an unlikely pairing of subjects: Nog and Kai Winn.
"Broken Oaths" is set in the fourth season, a Bashir and O'Brien story, discussing the fallout that the events of "Hippocratic Oath" had on their relationship.
"...Loved I Not Honor More" is set in the late fifth season, simultaneous with "Soldiers of the Empire". From Christopher L. Bennett's website: "In the wake of 'Ferengi Love Songs,' Quark is eager to exercise his renewed Ferengi business license and become a financial force to be reckoned with once again. But his priorities are tested when he's reunited with his old Klingon flame, the Lady Grilka. Will true love exact too high a price?"
"Three Sides to Every Story" is set in the early sixth season, spanning "Sons and Daughters" through "Sacrifice of Angels", is about Jake Sisko and Tora Ziyal.
"The Devil You Know" is set in the late sixth season and focuses on Jadzia.
"Foundlings" is set between the sixth and seventh seasons, and focuses on Odo; the story also "features the return of a DS9 character who was only seen in one episode", according to Jeffrey Lang, though Marco Palmieri replied "But, Jeff, if you think about it...that isn't quite true. :-)". It foreshadows some of Odo's decisions in the seventh season.
"Chiaroscuro" is set in the early seventh season, between "Afterimage" and "Take Me Out to the Hlosuite", and focuses on Ezri Dax dealing with Jadzia's legacy.
"Face Value" is set in the late seventh season. It includes Kira, Garak, and Damar.
"The Calling" is set after the series, serving as a sequel to "A Stitch in Time".
