WORF. Seeing him in full Klingon warrior mode was nice, especially because you didn't make him the brute he was in the MU (like DS9 did). Curzon still being around was a cool surprise, though I am sad Jadzia isn't there (they should be together somewhere, somehow, but I'm hoping she was a member of the Federation ship taken with the displacement wave).

Oh! I'm going out on a limb and saying this is the Caretaker Array. If so, mad and ingenious story twisting telling. Love that you would take an AU already rich in scope and perspectives but take it to a whole other level by dumping them into the DQ. So Alliance team up with Janeway and co. to make it home to the AQ, then? If so, cna't wait for the reveal.
As for the particulars of this ficlet, I live the touchstone of Dax in Worf's life (albeit Curzon) seems very fitting and Trek small universe multiverse-ness. It works and it works also to develop a depth to the Klingon culture with this family advisor position, etc. Really like that vibe and detail. Great stuff.
PS (does that mean if my theory is correct make Sisko in this scenario the Seska of this tale? Wow - that makes me giddy)

You win the prize for being the first Ad Astra author in the history of the site to send me to the dictionary. I did not know that "coruscating" meant "flashing and sparkling." Filing that one away for later; thanks for the shiny new piece of vocabulary!
Aside from that, it's interesting to see Curzon Dax in his position here. One wonders at the backstory that led to such an arrangement!
I am also wondering what this weapon is, and who set it off. Odo (or whatever shapeshifter that was) seemed to have stopped Kira from blowing the bomb, but that scene ended with her in unimaginable pain. What's going on here?
One more day to find out.
