    And here is clearly another story I need to get hold of.

    The idea of the station being the result of such a collaboration – a union of people ground between the gears of empire – is extraordinarily astute. It means DS9 really does belong there. It is not something that was hijacked and forced to play a role it was not meant to, as Gul Dukat will always insist, but rather that time and change have conspired to uncover what it was truly built for.

    I think I could gaze at that cover alone for a long while. The ghost of the station haunting the sky of Bajor above the statue of its mother, which cannot of course exist simultaineously with the apparition. But then all ghosts are juxtapositions and prophecies are often paradoxical.

    Lovely.
