What now?

Mission: A Brand New Day
Location: Starbase 67
Timeline: MD 15

Looking out of the window of her room at Starbase 67, Kather couldn't help but feel a sense of pride that her ship was once again docked there. This time, fully intact and staying that way. Plus, the crew who wanted to go forward was able to do so without repercussions.

She almost had to sell her soul to get the help she needed. Getting the Bajoran Kai and First Minister involved was risky, but it paid off. Getting Jake Sisko to help was just icing on the cake. She knew there were others in play, of course. Starfleet Intelligence had taken an unusual interest in the ship. Kather only knew one person in SI. That woman was a black ops member with some serious mental health issues, after being mind-altered by an enemy force. The deprogramming of Miraya Tiala was intense, and ultimately failed. It was successful on some degree, but it left Tiala with a deep distrust of Starfleet. Could Tiala have had some hand in what happened?

All of it left Kather's mind swirling into a dizzying array of theories and hypotheticals. She shook her head and decided it was not time to figure it all out. For now, she could enjoy a moment of happiness for herself and her crew.
