Sisko feels attracted to her, but she disappears as suddenly as she appeared. A while later he sees her again, but when he asks her personal questions she disappears again. Sisko wants to know her secret and asks Odo to investigate. Meanwhile Dax is working with professor Gideon Seyetik. He's famous for his terraforming projects, but thinks he's good at everything. He's on Deep Space Nine to prepare for his most ambitious project. Seyetik wants to re-ignite the dead star Epsilon 119. He invites the crew over for a dinner his wife prepared.

[first lines]
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.

Sisko meets a woman during a very vulnerable time...
18 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's the fourth anniversary of the death of Commander Sisko's wife. Because of this he's naturally very introspective and vulnerable. Coincidentally, he meets a mysterious and wonderful woman named Fenna--and she seems like the woman of his dreams. However, she is very cagey about who she is and when Sisko investigates, who Fenna is becomes very confusing and murky. Oddly, it also relates to the arrival of a famous terra-former, Dr. Gideon Seyetik (Richard Kiley)...but how?! And what exactly is Fenna? Is she a woman, a ghost, an alien...what?! Or, could Sisko simply be losing his mind?!

This is a pretty weird episode. I don't mean this in a bad's just very strange and unusual. But, now that I think about it, the answer to all this mystery is pretty lame. Not terrible but not very good either.
