Predictions for Raise the Dawn
*New Federation space station constructed on the Gamma Quadrant side of the wormhole. This does not necessarily mean that DS9 is destroyed or unsalvagable, but that they realize it's not a good idea to be blind to what is coming from the other side. This is really only based off of the cover, that intentionally seems generally have the wormhole on the right side in the Alpha Quadrant and the station on the left, but here it is flipped.
*Elias Vaughn wakes up. It's a quick throwaway line, but Sisko briefly sees or experiences this. I wouldn't think much of it, but he also saw the Xhosa
exploding, and that happened, so they seem to be visions.
in any case, I'm really excited. Very much enjoyed this book and can't wait for the 2nd half.
