a Deep Space 9 novella
by Sherri Fillingham
Trained from childhood in the ways of diplomacy, Julian Bashir rejected the family career and instead embarked on a lifetime dedication to the field of medicine. But it's not his skills as a doctor that are needed now. The Federation has ordered him to take the place of slain diplomats. Grieving for his dead relatives, fearful that his missing father might, too, have been slain, and in danger himself from the terrorists, Bashir rises to the challenge. With support from Sisko and Odo, Julian sets to work to complete the job first begun by his grandfather and pursued through the years by his father, uncle and cousins. Ifs an assignment that will reveal new insights into Bashir's character, talents and background. It's also an assignment that will change him forever from the eager young Starfleet officer who first arrived at Deep Space Nine.
Note: This is an alternate universe as the novella was written before Bashir's background was developed.246 pages
