"Brother on Brother, Daughter on Mother" is a Star Trek Online fanfic by StarSword and Worffan101, set in the Bait and Switch-verse.

As the new year dawns, Captain Kanril Eleya of the USS Bajor and Lieutenant Rachel Connor of MACO Unit 131 raid a Borg installation in Benthan space. Things get even more complicated when the future pokes its head in.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Four days into 2411, Eleya is acting as commodore of a joint Starfleet-Benthan-Vaadwaur task force investigating a Borg incursion in Benthan space. During the attack, new Borg ships join the fray under the command of One of One. Eleya uses this as a diversion to break through to the target planet, Delta-86017114-3, and deploy two ground teams from her ship to a Borg installation on the surface.

While Alicia Gantumur holds the landing zone as a distraction, Rachel Connor leads two members of her team, Petty Officers Jose Luiz and Belka Saris into the installation. Connor is ambushed by a trio of Borg tactical drones which attempt to assimilate her; however, her Section 31-created augmentations prove proof against such attacks, and she and Luiz kill the attackers.

Reaching a vinculum, Belka sets about copying all data from it, but is electrocuted. Connor is forced to complete the process under her direction. The ground teams beam back to USS Bajor, and the Vaadwaur lead the fleet into the safety of Underspace.

Command Master Chief Kinlo discovers that Belka erased a large portion of the data from the dump and informs Eleya and Connor, who head to sickbay to interrogate her. After Eleya threatens to use Connor's lie-detection abilities on her, Belka comes clean: her true identity is in fact Reshek Taryn, a possible future daughter of Eleya and her husband Reshek Gaarra, and a commander in Starfleet Intelligence Special Operations Section Eight. She explains the nature of time using a metaphor of a rope, made of many strands of probabilities that can also tangle and fray, and that her assignment was to preempt One of One from acquiring the Borg Queen's time travel technology. In deference to the Temporal Prime Directive, Eleya orders Connor to forget that the incident ever took place.

In a possible November 2421, Admiral Kanril Eleya, attended by holograms of her husband, now captain of USS Bajor himself, and her former first officer, Captain Tesjha Phohl, now commander of USS Iconia, gives birth to a daughter, whom she and Gaarra name Taryn.
