Storyline

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.

Trivia

Mark Gehred-O'Connell's original pitch for this episode involved Bashir meeting a mysterious woman who keeps disappearing. He goes to his colleagues for aid in tracking her down but he discovers that no one aboard the station has ever seen her except himself, and as such, he has to unravel the mystery alone, as his crewmates begin to think he's imagining the whole thing. Bashir ultimately discovers that the woman is in fact a projection by a woman who is abused by her husband. This original version of the story was more of an adventure/mystery than a romance.

Goofs

Seyetik refers to a recipe being cooked "at exactly 500 degrees Kelvin". Kelvin is an absolute temperature scale and is not measured in degrees. The proper unit is simply Kelvin. See more »

Quotes

[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 MartinHaferSee 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 way...it'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.
