With Sisko away, Kai Winn takes command of Deep Space Nine!


From the book jacket
When Captain Sisko leads the Defiant on a dangerous mission into the Gamma Quadrant to liberate a conquered world, the Bajoran government insists that Kai Winn Adami, the Federation's longtime nemesis, assume complete control of the space station. Left behind by Sisko, Major Kira expects the worst from the Kai's new regime, but even she is caught by surprise when a fleet of alien warships attack Deep Space Nine!

Background informationEdit

  • Author Dafydd ab Hugh is erroneously credited as "Daffyd ab Hugh" on the cover.
  • While Kai Winn's younger self and a few other Bajoran rebels are on the front cover, the main "A" story of this book is about Captain Sisko and the Defiant. Winn's story is relegated to a very tiny "B" story that is picked up in the second Rebels book.
