It's been 4 years since Sisko's wife died in the battle at Wolf 359 and he is a bit down lately. He's wandering around the Promenade when suddenly he gets approached by a woman, Fenna. 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. Written by

This episode marks the first appearance of a USS Prometheus in Star Trek. Although the exterior of the ship clearly shows it incorporates components from the Galaxy-class, not a single piece of any standing set from The Next Generation appeared-the wall outside Seyetik's quarters is a single length of stock Starfleet wall built specifically for DS9 scenes, Seyetik's quarters are a brand new set built from the remains of the runabout aft section seen in TNG: "Timescape", and the bridge is a re-dress of the USS Excelsior bridge set from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, combining its forward and aft walls. This smaller starship bridge would continue to be seen throughout the series as the bridge of various ships, both Federation and not; it would later appear in DS9: "The Jem'Hadar" as the bridge of the USS Odyssey.

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.
