At the edge of the final frontier.



Cardassian agents covertly return to Bajor to retreive 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.

  • This story did not explicitly state a time frame for the primary, unaltered chain of events, however, it seems to have taken place in 2371, sometime after Sisko was promoted to captain, but before the arrival of Worf on the station in early 2372.
  • The artist depicted two of Bajor's moons in some panels but it wasn't specified which of Bajor's multiple moons these were.
