Re: TTN: Fallen Gods by Michael A. Martin Review Thread (Spoilers!)
Well, with the whole Dax thing, I think it's worth keeping in mind that we saw her transfer to command in the DS9R in 2376 and got several books with her acting as the XO for Defiant. Then in Destiny set in 2381, 5 years later, she was originally Aventine's second officer, and only ended up in command because the captain and first officer died in a battle with the Borg.
