Storyline

The DS9 crew 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

Fantastic.
28 February 2021 | by stuart-smith729See all my reviews

There has been a few gems in Season 5 with Nor The Battle To The Strong my favourite but this was as equally as good.

I thought DS9 was going to be a poor man's Babylon 5 however its surprised me, very good show.
