Background information

  • The first two parts of this story were released on the 25th of December, 2010.
  • Originally this story was under the Swiftfire banner but in late February, 2011 it was moved to the Star Trek: The Farthest Star banner, which was created to group stories that don't have a focus on Swiftfire characters.
  • A temporary cover was created for this story, which used a screenshot from "The Visitor". It was made black and white to signify it was not the final cover. The final cover was added at the start of 2011.
  • There is a slight error with the cover as it shows Ben Sisko in the incorrect uniform as he should be in the Star Trek: First Contact style uniform that the show started to used mid-way through season 5 as Sisko "died" in early season 6 in this universe.
  • The story took nearly four years to complete due to a waning in the writer's interest in Star Trek in 2012 that resulted in a complete stop to all writing in 2013. The story wasn't worked on again until 2014 when it was eventually finished.
