-Description of new DS9
-Re-telling of the Emissary
-Meet the whole cast of DS9 again
-Galactically important event.
all intercut every other chapter with a mildly boring hard to relate to Bajoran backstory about Kira? Or maybe not, I'm still not sure. that pays off at the end with an appearance by somebody out of nowhere who might be known or important but I'm not sure because I have never heard of the character, and Kira meeting with some other character who I assume was in other books that I haven't read. (I've read a lot) These storys have no payoff, neither does the Bacco story or the Odo story. Or any story. It was an info dump. No wonder it's at 2.6/5 on amazon.
