Superb story! A very plausible (if chilling) alternate history of the Dominion War aftermath. I liked the way you slowly brought us into the story - providing just enough ominous detail to hook us, then drawing us deeper into the story. Very well done!
Thank you very much for reading! It's good to see you around again, and I am very glad you liked this.
And yeah, "chilling" is definitely the word for how it felt when I came up with this thing. If humanity was going to survive, there was NO way the Dominion would leave them to their own devices. They didn't leave the Teplans, the Jem'Hadar, or the Vorta, that's for sure...
