In my 'verse, Captain Sesshomaru Touken and the USS Galaxy are stopping by DS9, I'm thinking so Sesshomaru can introduce himself to Captain Sisko and tell him 'Me and my ship have been ordered to switch homeport to Starbase 383, the closest Starbase there is to Bajor that can support a Galaxy-class.'
Sisko: Hmm, I take it relocating a Galaxy-class to be closeby is going to serve as a subtle warning to the Cardassians?
Sesshomaru: *nods* Hai. As you know they are still keeping an extremely close watch on what has been happening around Bajor and they have not missed the discovery of the Bajoran Wormhole. My direct superior has informed me that I and the Galaxy have been relocated closeby to serve as a deterrant to Cardassia deciding to retake Bajor to have the Wormhole all to themselves.
Sisko: Starfleet definitely chose the right Captain to be that deterrent in you, Capt. Touken. The Cardassians know you well from the Cardassian War and they genuinely fear you.
Sesshomaru: And now I look forward to being Bajor's guard dog until the Bajorans can fend for themselves better. I also realize I have some winning over to do with the Bajoran people, and that's another reason why I'm here, to send down a few peace envoys to Bajor.
Like maybe, during the 'Paradise Lost' episodes for instance, when Sisko and Co. have to go to Earth, Ben has Capt. Sess watch over DS9 while he's gone and the Bajorans see as a start in person that he's not somebody to be as afraid of as they were thinking, that he's very Vulcan-like when there are no immediate threats to the station nearby and nobody shooting at the station and/or trying to forcefully board it.
Sesshomaru has to do some winning over the Bajorans because word got out that when Sess and Dukat had a staredown, Sesshomaru narrowed his eyes in a way that sent a chill down Dukat's spine and then growled in low, feral-like voice at a volume that was enough to convince Dukat that the stories he'd heard about Sesshomaru's fearful actions during the Cardassian War were true and that he'd better have plenty of backup if he was going to get on the Dog's bad side.
Bajorans got word of that and started fearing they now had a Dukat in a Starfleet uniform on their hands and so Sesshomaru's gotta send a peace mission down to the planet as well as make some goodwill visits to show that while he may be just as intimdating as Dukat when he has to be, he's really on their side and they can put nearly as much faith in him as they put in Sisko by this point. It's not until things really start deteriorating in 2372 though they come to start trusting Sesshomaru in my imagining of things.
This is a mixed background though, is it not? There is no other way to explain the inconsistent lighting of the solar objects. Looks nice and seamless though. If it weren't for the lighting I'd fall for it.
Sooo, it's the Enterprise that's delivering Sisko (and, presumably, other personnel and equipment as well) to the newly liberated Bajor system in your 'verse? Well, that must have been an uncomfortable ride for Sisko and Picard.
Oh and Worf is awesome, jus' sayin'. He can love a guy like his brother and STILL go all whoopass on him if he thinks that the guy is being a coward.
Anyway, nice pic as always, though DS9 should be a rusty brown in colour instead of gray, in keeping with the Cardies' ships, but the rest is awesome, as usual.
Yupp, it's Sisko on the Ent-D... but a bit different Bajor. Here's my two cents on the subject: Bajor is intended to be the analogue for Palestine in Trek, the creators said that. What did Israeli occupation do to the Palestines? It turned them into religious fanatic Mad Maxes. So the Bajor shown in DS9 is not correct. In my Polarisverse, it's the anarchical post-apocalyptic craphole filled with crazy sects and military juntas the way it should be.
