Story Notes:
Like an earlier challenge entry, this is a story of character introspection.

The narrative is largely an addendum to the DS9 episode "Tacking Into the Wind" that also contains dialogue and events from the DS9 episode "The Way of the Warrior" and the TNG episodes "Heart of Glory", "Sins of the Father", "Reunion", "Redemption, Parts 1 and 2", and "Birthright, Part 1". Also contains a never before aired scene that takes place shortly after the events of "Heart of Glory".

Flashback sequences are indicated in italics to differentiate from the scenes in the "present".
