Sisko and the crew take a new starship into the Gamma Quadrant to contact the Founders of the Dominion.

IntroductionEdit

From the front cover:

The novelization of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's incredible two-part premiere!

From the back cover:

The Dominion: The mysterious rulers of the worlds on the other side of the wormhole. The Dominion: a ruthless planet-conquering race unknown even to those they rule. The Dominion: the most dangerous foe the Federation may ever face.
At the edge of the wormhole, the space station Deep Space Nine and the planet Bajor sit on what will be the front line in any Dominion attack. To try and prevent the conflict, Commander Benjamin Sisko and his crew take a never-tested Federation warship through the wormhole to track down and confront the Dominion. If Commander Sisko fails, not only the Federation, but the Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, and all the worlds of the Alpha Quadrant will face an interstellar war they cannot win.

InformationEdit

First appearancesEdit

  • The USS Defiant (and the Defiant class) makes it first appearance in the series, as do the Romulans and Deep Space 9's wardroom.
  • Eddington makes his first appearance in "The Search, Part I" and his first name is given as Paul in the novelization. Ron Moore named Eddington after Kirk Douglas's character (also Paul Eddington) in the film In Harm's Way. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion) Eddington gave his first name as Michael in an unaired or unfilmed part of his introduction, which was in the shooting script. His first name would not be mentioned in dialogue until "For the Uniform".
  • As the first episode[s] of 2371, the current insignia (the arrowhead in front of a rectangular bar) debuted here. TNG novel: Intellivore occurred prior to The Search, but the older insignia was still in use during that novel.
