    Summary

    “So, I’m to understand that you’re upset because — barring further daring heroics in the name of frontier medicine — you may only attain the average human lifespan?”

    Julian inspects his own toes. “A bit, yes.”

    After a moment, Garak says, conversationally: “The meteoric trajectory of your medical career may have to be compressed, I suppose. Carrington Award rescheduled for, what, forty-five or so? Admission to the Interplanetary Consortium of Physical Medicine bumped up to seventy? Now, don’t scoff, my dear Julian. If anyone can do it, it’s you.”

     --
    Julian's actions on Cardassia have bargained-for consequences, and Garak grapples with ghosts.

    Summary

    Tryst was like if you took all of Leenik’s worst impulses and made them hot. Only in Tryst they didn’t feel—dangerous. Or they did, but the good kind of dangerous, not the unbalanced, fragile kind. In Tryst they were the kind of dangerous that made you fun at parties, rather than the kind that got you psychiatric screenings. Tryst took the spikes out of Leenik’s free-falling self-destruction and made him think—infectious and certain—that he was going to land safely before before he leapt.

     

    He was usually wrong. Which was how they ended up back at the Bluebird, at 8 am, two hours into Leenik’s shift, slumped into a booth. Leenik was tipped forward with his head on the table. Bacta’s head was on his knee, the rest of him splayed across the bench. He felt kind of weird about that—not Bacta in his space, he’d had that for five years easy as breathing. It was the six months that he hadn’t that was making it weird.

    Summary

    Zero activated his comm. “Sy.”

    There was a pause, and then Synox’s clipped voice said, “go ahead, Agent Zero.”

    “Listen carefully, because I’m only going to say this once.” He hadn’t caught any bugs in the room, nor did he think it likely his personal connect with Synox could be sliced—he could almost hear Blue scoff at the possibility—but if there was one thing he’d learned in his years on the job it was that paranoia paid. “Blue’s been kidnapped.”
