Arjin, a Trill candidate to undergo the joining, comes to Deep Space Nine to be Dax's initiate. She has to mentor him and make recommendations if he's worthy to be joined. Arjin seems not happy to be assigned to Dax, knowing what mentor Curzon did to Jadzia. He's trying to do everything according to the normal expectations to please her, but is disappointed to find out she's not an ordinary Trill. On their first away mission in the Gamma Quadrant they accidentally hit a subspace pocket. A strange protoplasmic substance attaches itself to the nacelle. After investigating it on Deep Space Nine, Dax finds out it is a proto-universe. It's expanding and slowly, but surely replacing the present universe.

You don't know me as well as you think you do. I'm sure you looked at all the training profiles. But that doesn't tell you who Jadzia really was before she was joined. She was the quietest, shyest, most withdrawn young woman you've ever known - brilliant, top grades... and not a clue to what life was about. She'd never lived outside the program. And it didn't matter because she was sailing through it. Until she met Curzon Dax. Curzon sized her up in about twenty seconds, and made the next two ...
