Commander Sisko: Personal log, stardate 47329.4 - I finally realize why I've had trouble sleeping the last few nights. Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of the massacre at Wolf 359, the fourth anniversary of Jennifer's death. I'm not sure what bothers me more, the date itself, or the fact that it almost passed unnoticed.

A mysterious woman attracts Sisko
11 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is the anniversary of the death of Commander Sisko's wife and he can't sleep, after a talk to his son Jake he goes for a walk on the promenade where he meets a woman called Fenna who he immediately gets on well with, although strangely she vanishes . In the morning it is clear that she has had an effect on him; he is chatty and doesn't have his usual strong drink to wake him up. At the time a senior Star Fleet scientist, Professor Seyetik is visiting the station prior to a mission to attempt to be the first person to reignite a dead star. The man is a genius and insists on telling everybody whether they want to hear or not. Sisko has a bit of a shock when he is introduced to the professor's wife Nidell; she is identical to Fenna but when confronted by Sisko denies ever meeting him before. When he returns to his quarters he finds Fenna is there and she claims to have no knowledge of Nidell. When Sisko calls Dax in to scan Fenna they make a surprising discovery; there is nobody there, just energy. It turns out she is a psychic projection created by Nidell while she is asleep; it seems it isn't good for Nidell's health though. Sisko must accept that he will lose Fenna as she will vanish if Nidell dies and she will die if she doesn't stop projecting.

This was a fairly average episode of DS9, while Fenna wasn't a bad character she wasn't that interesting and Professor Seyetik was so full of himself that he came across as a caricature, this meant his final sacrifice didn't have as much impact as it might have done.
