    I just realized, that in the last three DRGIII novels concerning DS9 (RBoE, PoN, RtD), we never saw Opaka.

    I can't help but wonder now if something happened to her during the entire Ascendents situation...

    I also wondered why Opaka wasn't in the last 2 ds9 books maybe we'll find out what happened to her in the next Ds9 novel coming out next year.

    She appeared in a unpublished David Mack story and died. ;)

    Opaka has made it clear that she considers her new spiritual path to lie outside the realm of politics or anything high-profile, so the fact that's she slipped off the radar doesn't necessarily mean something awful's happened to her. ;) Maybe she's off meditating in a secluded monastery, or helping refugees in the wider Federation?

    Opaka was mentioned in Raise the Dawn as still being around. On page 320:

    I found it mildly strange that she didn't show up at Vaughn's bedside, considering they appeared to be on their way to a relationship in Fragments and Omens.
