Didn't they also kidnap (off-page) Sisko's kid and that is why she needs a bodyguard or am I mixing that up with another storyline?
Wasn't Rebecca kidnapped by some Bajoran extremists??

Yeah, it was extremists or something. Kind of a throwaway line when Sisko is reflecting on recent years in RBoE (IIRC).

Ohalavaru extremists, if I recall. Not part of the Ascendant storyline, but one of a series of events (along with the Ascendant storyline) that led to Sisko's state of depression as seen in Rough Beasts.

Re: Ascendents

You see, it turned out the Ascendents were some pretty cool dudes. They ended up throwing the craziest party on Deep Space Nine -- a party so crazy most of the details are now highly classified. Some of the known highlights include:

*Miles O'Brien throwing out his shoulder while break dancing. (Yes, Miles was at the party. It was that crazy.)

*Worf made out with the subjectively hottest of the ascendant female warriors

*The "Kira Trio" regaled the party goers with their renditions of the pop songs of the day

At the end of the party they all agreed to do it again in a decade's time.

They set the place on fire. Metaphorically and literally.

Seems to me this would be a dangerous thread, being called "Re: Ascendents", for anyone wanting no spoilers about the Ascendants.

You haven't received any spoilers. The whole point is that there is nothing to know. The few snippets from Rough Beasts that have been mentioned are so small and tangential as to be negligible.

Unless that was a joke based on Newspaper Taxi's post...

Re: Ascendents

It was the hints about the other stuff that happens in the Bajor system in Destiny / TP which I prefer not to be reminded about. I do still hope they cover the Ascendants storyline properly some day.

I'd forgotten how bad the ds9 relaunch was

I'm actually kinda glad they did the skip, even if we ended up with rbe

Re: Ascendents

So, there are no plans to pay off that storyline and fill in the gap at all? All of the mystery, intrigue and buildup/revelation is just dropped? Unbelievable.

the big twist was going to be that the ascendants stole siskos spine so that they could do battle with the dominion

There have been no such plans to revealed to us, certainly. That doesn't necessarily mean such plans don't exist, but the current Powers That Be appear to have their own plans that involve moving forwards rather than backwards. On the other hand, nothing is impossible.

I'm not surprised given your username

But given that just under trek, Pocket Books has published The Final Reflection, Federation, The Wounded Sky, Doctors Orders, Spocks World, Q Squared, Imzadi, The 34th Rule, A Stitch in Time and countless other great books, I totally disagree.
