Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Protouniverse1

During a mission to the Gamma Quadrant in 2370, a small unidentified object was discovered to have embedded itsself in the starboard nacelle of the Danube class runabout, after an impact a subspace interphase pocket. Dax and Arjin, a trill initiate, recovered the object and brought it back to deep space nine for further study.1

It was placed in the science laboratory of Deep Space Nine. Overnight, it expanded significantly breaching its containment field. It was later discovered that condition within the object did not conform to the physical laws of our universe. It was identified as a protouniverse. Further investigation reviled that it also showed signs of live.1

As it continued to expand it was starting to be a threat to the integrity of the station and if left unchecked the whole Bajoran system. Consequently, it was decided to attempt to return it to the Gamma quadrant where it originated.1

As Dax and Arjin started the journey back through the wormhole they discovered it was dangerously destabilised each time it interacted with a Verteron Node. The continued growth of the protouniverse also threatened to destroy the ship and release the universe within the wormhole, potentially destroying both in the process. Careful piloting by Arjin, who was a level five pilot, allowed the transit of the wormhole to be completed by avoiding the nodes. The universe was released to follow its natural progression.1
