Storyline

The DS9 cast discovers a small colony on a remote world that was originally populated by them 200 years earlier due to a time-travel accident with the Defiant. The current colonists lives depend on making sure that accident happens again, even though they've now forwarned the crew that it will happen. Each crew member needs to decide if they are willing to give up their lives on DS9 in order to preserve the history of the colony. Written by Gholamite

Goofs

It is established that Miranda's DNA is substantially similar to O'Brien's, as well as Rita Tannenbaum's. That analysis would be valid if Miranda were the daughter of the two, or at least granddaughter. But after 200 years and 7-8 generations down the line, it is more likely that each descendant - barring incest - has the genetic material of most of the original crew to more or less equal parts, not one dominant DNA in particular.

Flaws get in the way
6 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise and plot of this episode were very good, but the racial composition of the crew's descendants was so big of a flaw it took away from the rest of the episode. I'm willing to suspend disbelief for DS9 (as well as all the other Star Trek franchises/movies) to allow for the somewhat distinct races that still exist 300+ years into the future. But in this episode, there have been another 200 years (8-9 generations) with the full 8,000 person population all stemming from 40 or so people. There is just no way there would still be "black" & "white" people. (Don't even get me started on the redheads!) This would be one multi-racial group. And how there were still "pure" Trills, with only one to begin with, is a mystery. At the very least, the Trills would also be Klingon descendants. For one episode they could have cast a group of racially ambiguous people. (As noted in the "goofs" section, each descendant would likely have the same amount of DNA from the original crew, so racial distinctions would be minimal if any.)
