... fate ...
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.

Fate.

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.

Sure it is. An evil universe where all the people are basically the same and end up in the same exact positions. Don't know what else you would call it?

Canon in itself is shit, so it's irrelevant.

Coincidence. The idea is that there are infinite universes so it's possible that one such universe can exist. Why they were sent there and not somewhere completely different, I don't know. That could be fate, or it could be something else.
