Another example of fate in Star Trek would be the on going relationship between the Prime and the Mirror universes.
Counterparts being located on the starship and space station that it-selves has a counterpart in opposite universe.
With a very few exceptions of course.
The first visit to the MU isn't really fate. Even the second time could still be seen as not fate. But yeah, the repeated trips over there, and characters like Ezri appearing and Jadzia dying are too coincidental and there's definitely some sort of fate there.
However, all those subsequent stories are also shit. So I don't know if it's really a good precedent.
