In Prelude to Day of Blood, the U.S.S. Santa Cruz travels to the Korvat colony for Kot’baval. But what was supposed to be a simple observation of the sacred Klingon festival quickly turns into a bloodbath when the cult of the godkiller reveals themselves to the universe. It’s time for Benjamin Sisko to face the past, and for readers to finally get a look at the true fallout of the Dominion War. ‘Deep Space Nine’ is the inspiration for this entire line, so it feels only right that the crew of the U.S.S. Theseus come back to where it all started.
