The Lost Jem Hedar Fleet

I've been watching DS9's sixth season, and when the big Dominion fleet from the Gamma Quadrant vanished before Sisko's eyes, I wondered if any TrekLit author had tried to do something with the "lost 28,000". I seem to remember hearing some discussion about them before..

Second season? The only time something like that happened that I recall was in season six. If that's what you're referring to, then those Jem Hadar played a small role in DS9:Unity by S.D. Perry.

Sixth, yes. I also just started TNG's second season so I may have gotten my numbers confused. It's been a long time since I read Unity.

It was also 2800 ships, not 28,000

Wow I had forgotten all about that. Can someone remind me what happened in Unity with them again?

Same here. I just read Unity a few months back and I sure don't remember anything about a missing fleet turning up. Of course, it's been a long time since I saw that episode too, so to be fair, I really don't remember a fleet going missing in the first place.

I always thought it would have been cool if they were transported to the delta quad and left there. that's enough ships to start a good little empire

Re: The Lost Jem Hedar Fleet

I've had my own idea on the matter and generally involves the Prophets spitting the fleet out in a different era.

I've always assumed that the Fleet was being "held" onto in a form of stasis lock and once the Ascendants arc started up, they've be released into the arms of a Reformed Dominion under Odo & Laas.

Or maybe not.
