2371 THE EVENTS OF ST:DSN SEASON THREE 
THE EVENTS OF STAR TREK: GENERATIONS 
THE EVENTS OF ST:VOYAGER SEASON ONE 

Chakotay's father, Kolopak, dies. 

Ben Sisko returns to Earth to report in detail on his contact with the Jem'Hadar, and the destruction of the Odyssey. In the process, he realizes that he has come to think of Deep Space Nine as home. He returns to the station with the USS Defiant, which he helped design, but which experienced unsuccessful flight tests. The ship is dangerously overpowered, but Sisko concludes that the show of force will be valuable in countering the Dominion threat. He consults with chief O'Brien on ways to regulate the Defiant's power curves. 

The senior staff of Deep Space Nine, aboard the USS Defiant, enters the Gamma Quadrant to seek the Founders of the Dominion. The Dominion captures the senior staff and submits them to unconscious testing to learn about their determination. Jem'Haddar forces study the captured Defiant. After their release, Sisko and his staff receive permission to keep the Defiant at Deep Space Nine, since it has better performance characteristics than the three runabouts based at the station. Operations chief Miles O'Brien installs safeguards to keep the Defiant from damaging itself. 

Odo discovers that his species, the Changlings, are the Founders of the Dominion. 

The memory blockers which prevent Dax from remembering its host Jurian Balar break down, threatening Jadzia's life. On Trill for treatment, Sisko and Bashir learn of the secret of the Trill Symbiosis Commission, and blackmail the Commission into allowing Jadzia to remember. 

On Cestus III, a colony once attacked by the Gorn, the archaic sport of Baseball becomes popular. 

While in the Gamma Quadrant, a Vulcan geological survey team unearths the apparently abandoned home word of the Hurk, who had invaded the Kronos over a thousand years earlier. One artifact brought back is a cloth, recognized by Ambassador Kor as the legendary Shroud of Kahless' Sword, bearing an imprint of the batleth. 

The Nova Class US Equinox is pulled into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. The ship escapes and begins the long voyage home. Not designed for extended service, the ship has to fight its way across the light years. Eventually, Captain Ransom learns to achieve high speed by drawing power from the bodies of aliens from another dimension. He proceeds to move his ship closer to home, although replicators and many other systems on the ship fail. (Equinox)

Lt. Thomas Riker defects to the Maquis, and leads a team which steals the Defiant from its berth at Deep Space Nine. Riker reveals that the Cardassian Obsidian Order is secretly building a war fleet in the Urias system. Riker surrenders in order to save the lives of his crew. In an agreement between Ben Sisko and Gul Dukat, Riker is sentenced to life imprisonment in a Cardassian labor camp on Lazon II. His crew and the Defiant are handed over to Starfleet. 

Harry Kim graduates Starfleet Academy, and is assigned to the USS Voyager, meeting the ship at Deep Space Nine. (The Caretaker)

A Maquis ship commanded by ex-Starfleet officer Chakotay, disappears in the Badlands region, following a fire fight with a disabled Cardassian warship. The USS Voyager, commanded by Captain Kathryn Janeway, is assigned to search for the Maquis ship, which carries her Security Officer, Tuvok, as an undercover agent. Also on board the Maquis ship is Seska, a Cardassian, surgically altered to appear to be Bajoran, also operating as a spy. Janeway recruits Tom Paris (Jr.) to help search the Badlands. (The Caretaker)

In the Badlands, the Voyager is scanned by a coherent tetrion beam, and trapped by a displacement wave on Stardate 48315. The Voyager reappears tens of thousands of light years away, in the Delta Quadrant, out of touch with the Federation. They are in a region of space controlled by the Kazons, a powerful alien race with many creches and sects, such as the Olga and the Nistrim. The crews discover they have been kidnapped by a member of the Naceen species from another galaxy, who has been protecting the Ocampa species for 1,000 years. He has captured many ships, looking for a compatible bio-molecular pattern, so he can procreate. The effort fails, the Caretakes dies, and his space station "the Array" is destroyed, to prevent the Kazon from taking possession of it. This has the effect of protecting the Ocampa from the Kazon, for at least five years, until the power provided by the Caretaker is exhausted. Chakotay rams his ship into a Kazon warship after evacuating his crew. The combined crews begin the long journey home in the Voyager, also looking for a second member of the Naceen Caretaker species, who they believe to be somewhere in the Delta Quadrant. Chakotay, Captain of the Maquis ship, agrees to become First Officer of the Voyager. Harry Kim, on his first deep space assignment, remains OPS officer. Tom Paris has his commission reactivated, and becomes Con officer. Tuvok returns to his post as security officer. B'Elanna Torres becomes Chief Engineer. Chakotay's sometimes-lover Seska is also assigned to Engineering. (The Caretaker)

On Stardate 48481, a transporter accident while beaming from the USS Defiant, in Earth orbit, to San Franciso throws Benjamin Sisko, Julian Bashir and Jadzia Dax back in time to the year 2024. Remaining crew on the Defiant are eventually able to track the three, and recover them. In the interim, however, all evidence of Starfleet and the Federation disappear from the Sol system. 

Vedick Bariel is seriously injured in a transport accident, but is kept alive by Bashir while Kai Wynn negotiates with Legit Torral for a peace treaty between Bajor and Cardassia. Bariel suffers serious brain damage, resulting from an experimental drug. He dies of brain damage. Cardassia and Bajor sign a peace treaty. Although there is dissent from hard line elements on both sides, observers say it holds the potential for a new era. 

On Stardate 48579.4, the USS Voyager makes contact with a Romulan ship through a microscopic wormhole, and the Romulan captain actually beams through the wormhole. The Romulan, however, is from the year 2351. He returns to his ship with messages he agrees to keep the message chip for 20 years, and then turn it over to the Federation after the Voyager disappears. He, however, dies before the 20 years is up. 

On the Voyager, Seska is unveiled as a Cardassian, and escapes to a Kazon ship. 

A fleet combining forces of the Romulan Tal Sheyar and the Cardassian Obsidian Order invades the Gamma Quadrant, and attacks the Founders of the Dominion.

Kirk and Picard return to Veridian III and together prevent Soran from destroying the Veridian star. This saves the life of 250 million pre-industrial inhabitants of the system. In the process, Kirk falls into a deep canyon, and dies a few moments after Picard reaches his side. 

The USS Enterprise, 1701D is destroyed. The Battle section suffers a warp core breech following a battle with the Klingon Bird of Prey which had transported Soran to Veridian, and which had secretly obtained the Enterprise shield harmonic frequency. The Battle section explosion shock wave throws the detached Saucer into the atmosphere of Veridian III. The saucer crash lands, effectively trashing it beyond salvage. The Duras sisters, Lursa and B'Etor, who had lead the conspiracy to conquer the Klingon empire, are killed on the Bird of Prey explosion in the Veridian system. On 48650.1, a Starfleet task force lead by the USS Farragut evacuates the Enterprise crew.

(The Sound of her Voice)

Odo causes the death of a changling who had impersonated an ambassador and taken over the Defiant in an effort to begin a border war. The dieing Changling indicates to Odo that Changlings have infiltrated Starfleet and the Federation. A simple test is developed to determine whether a person is actually a Changling -- blood removed from a Changling will revert to its Changling form rather than retain the appearance of blood. It is later determined that this test can be fooled by the Changlings. 

The USS Voyager locates the home of the 37ers, whose ancestors were kidnapped from Earth in 1937. Amelia Earhart, and the others still in cyrogrnic stasis, are awakened.
