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

The settlement on Gaia seems to appear the moment the Defiant passes through the energy barrier. However, it is not actually this passage, but the encounter with the temporal anomaly and the subsequent crash landing in the past that leads to the colony's creation. Since that accident hasn't happened yet, the colony should not appear at this stage yet. Although, of course, there would then be no story. See more
