Oh - clever almost Einsteinian use of time as distance! Time is scewed up and corkscrewing on itself, it seems ....

Great portraits of both characters!

Author's Response:

Thank you! This was probably my favorite of the bunch to write -- Jadzia's perspective on life, death, and time is one of the reasons she's actually here. She's one of the most well-adjusted characters in Trek history, IMO.

I liked the intro to this a lot -- time, distance ... both measurements of progress.  Jadzia's perspective on this is better than most, having had seven lifetimes to think about it.  Nicely done.

I laughed at her assessment of Julian, though.  The Julian she knew?  Superior in social skills?  I think he'd love to hear that from her lips.  She'd never give him the satisfaction, though ... or maybe she would, if she had the chance now.

"Good luck with One" also made me laugh.  He's a lover, not a fighter, but one does not simply kill a Borg drone made with 29th century tech.

As for Persis, her thoughts on the situation are chilling, as is Jadzia's agreement.  I hope they can fix this.  Well, actually, I hope One can fix this.  Aside from Dax, he's the only one around who seems sane.

Author's Response:

Thank you! I really liked writing Dax here -- despite being only somewhat familiar with DS9, Dax was among my favorite characters from that show, especially Jadzia. Writing her just flowed naturally for me. I'm glad you enjoyed the humor as well, I was trying to channel some of that wit of hers and seemed to do it.

As for sanity, Dax and One pretty much (up to this point) are the sanest of the bunch. Dax has died before, so that's not new for her and One is a Borg drone -- they adapt rather quickly to things. Persis' words were meant to be chilling, as the threat they face isn't small (more on that later). Even Dax has to agree that things aren't looking good.
