(written from a Production point of view)
Trapped beyond time and space, Sisko must free his ship to save the galaxy! Told in his own words!
The Mist is a Pocket DS9 novel – and the third novel in the The Captain's Table series – written by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Published by Pocket Books, it was first released in July 1998.
- There's a bar called "The Captain's Table," where those who have commanded mighty vessels of every shape and era can meet, relax, and share a friendly drink or two with others of their calling. Sometimes a brawl may break out but it's all in the family, more or less. Just remember, the first round of drinks is always paid for with a story… even on the planet Bajor.
- Do the people of the Mist have the ultimate cloaking device – or a gateway to another dimension? Captain Benjamin Sisko doesn't know for sure, but the Klingons, the Cardassians, and the Ferengi Alliance will stop at nothing to obtain the device. Now Sisko finds himself in the middle of a deadly struggle that could change the balance of power throughout the entire Alpha Quadrant!
- The story is set after DS9: "The Ascent" and before DS9: "For the Uniform".
- The Klingon character Sotugh gives the same answer as Worf did in "Trials and Tribble-ations" when asked about why some Klingons look more like Humans: "It is not something we discuss with outsiders".
