Luka closed her eyes for a moment as they entered the anomaly, and suddenly her consciousness was no longer on the bridge of the Athena. She glanced around in alarm as she found herself in a blank white-space with no frame of reference. After a few moments of this sensation, she felt the presence of another being behind her. She turned around swiftly, and gasped as she saw the figure of her mother standing there.

“The Luka has faith,” her mother spoke, tilting her head.

“Faith in prophets of another world,” another voice spoke, and Luka spun around to see Captain Shore. Her eyes widened.

“What the… where the… who… what is this?” she stammered, stepping away from the form of her mother. It couldn’t be her mother, her emotions were locked away.


The figures shifted when she glanced away, and she saw the faces of Ghubari and her brother in the place of her mother and Captain Shore.

“The Luka does not understand.” ‘Ghubari’ spoke.

“The Ghubari understood. The mirror needs the Ghubari,” ‘Rishu’ added.

The pair glanced over to the side. Luka’s vision went white again, then the scene changed…

Luka found herself in a wooded clearing. Sometimes in a dream, things that in reality one would find strange are accepted as normal. It seemed the same effect applied here, because the silver and grey of the leaves and grass didn’t perturb Luka. In fact, she saw these colours and thought, ‘Of course. What other colours would they be?

In the middle of the clearing, there sat a small platform made of the dark silver wood of the trees around the clearing. It was only about half a foot tall, but on the platform sat a meditating female figure who, upon standing up, would be over 12 ft. in height.

She did not do so, instead opening her eyes. “Ah… My child,” she spoke, her voice seemingly endless, echoing in Luka’s head, and the officer immediately knew who this was. She bowed low to the one her people knew as Lu’ne.

Lu’ne stood up, but did not increase in height, shrinking her visage to match the size of Luka. She stepped over and placed her hand on Luka’s shoulder, lifting her to her full height. “My child…” She spoke, her voice softer and less resonant than before.

Luka, XO

Luka looked up at the figure taking the form of her god. “Are you really Lu’ne, or are you another one of the illusions?” she asked, taking the smallest step backwards. Her mind was racing at the possibilities of what could be happening.

Lu’ne smiled. “I am the one your legends portray as goddess of the moon. In the language of the Bajoran entities, we are the Prophets of Galdor, watching over you in a similar way. Although perhaps a little more interactive, and a bit more tethered to the timeline. Which is why I can speak to you without the barrier of riddles and such.”

Luka nodded quietly, and listened as Lu’ne continued. “I cannot talk much longer, it is taking some effort to communicate with you from this distance, but we wanted to let you know that what you are doing… it is important. I cannot give you any more details, but know that the place…” she began to cut out as if static was overtaking her words, with Luka able to hear the next few words, and nothing after… “the place you are going is…” and her words were so covered in static Luka could hear no more. At the same time, tv static took over her vision, filling everything with grey, black, and white, then it all faded to white.

After a few moments of the silence left by the static, Luka ‘woke’ up on the bridge and glanced over at Ghubari, a strange peace filling her despite the sudden transition.

Luka, XO
