Vaughn and Opaka? .... perfect.

The hints have been there forever. It's rare that these relationships develop organically in ST. Usually it's some forced plot point that forces characters together, and then the attempt is to rationalize it after the fact. (Troi and Worf, Seven and Chakotay etc.) So this is just great.
They flirted some in Fragments and Omens, but never had time to build on that afterwards. So I gently threaded in a couple of moments through my season, knowing that I was coming to this moment. I think two older people growing together like that would take it slowly and respectfully, just because they don't have that youthful urgency. I like that Vaughn stands in the presence of a lady.

Once again, it may be somewhat technobabble, but it believable using already established phenomenon rather than just making up some magical radiation or force or new use for a deflector dish like Star Trek likes to do far too often for my taste.
I loved that bit in Fearful Symmetry where all the alternate Siskos explain to our Sisko that all of the DS9 stories about the Mirror Universe were actually part of the Prophets' plan in a way we hadn't previously considered. I thought that was just a brilliant idea. So... what other episodes might have also been a part of the bigger whole? What might be understandable in a whole new way when looking from a larger perspective such as that of the Prophets?

Part 3 coming at the weekend.

TrekLit/DS9-R fans! Want a different vision of the Ascendant conflict and the DS9 time gap?

Read DS9 SEASON 10 and DS9 SEASON 11 !
