  KEIKO O'BRIEN - Visual nr 2072
 
Starfleet botanist, formerly assigned to the Enterprise-D. Later stationed at Deep Space 9. Born Keiko 
ishikawa, she married fellow crew member Miles O"Brien in 2367. Their wedding, held aboard the  
Enterprise-D in the Ten-forward lounge, was a mixture of Japanese and Irish traditions. Keiko gave birth  
to a girl, Molly O'Brien, a year later. Molly was born in Ten-forward during a ship-wide systems failure.  
Keiko briefly reduced to a child after passing through an energy field in 2369.  

Keiko accepted a transfer to station Deep Space 9 in 2369 when her husband was assigned there as chief  
of operations. Keiko was appaled at the living accommodations on the station, but remained there for the  
sake of her husband's career. Keiko and her husband visited Earth that same year for her mother's 100th  
birthday. As a child, Keiko helped her grandmother with her Japanese brush painting. It had been the young  
Keiko's special task to fill the old chipped cup that her grandmother, whom she called Obachan, used to  
clean the brush. Keiko found adapting to life on the station difficult. She was dissatisfied by the lack of pro- 
fesional opportunities on the station for a botanist, and was concerned about the lack of educational facilities 
for her daughter. Keiko was able to address this last issue when Commander Sisko granted her permission to 
establish a schoolroom on the station. Keiko operated the school until early 2371, when enrollment dropped   
dramatically because of fearsof a possible Dominion attack.  

Shortly thereafter ahe accepted an assignment as chief botanist on a agrobiology expedition to Bajor. The  
assignment kept Keiko and her daughter, Molly away from the station for much of that year. In 2372, Keiko  
became pregnant with her second child. Later that year she completed her assignment on Bajor, and she 
and her daughter returned to live on the station.  

Keiko's second pregnancy nearly ended disastrously when she  was seriously injured in an accident aboard  
the runabout Volga during a botanical survey mission to Torad IV. Dr. Bashir saved her life, but it was ne- 
cessary to remove her unborn child and implant it into the body of Kira Nerys. Keiko and Miles subsequently 
invited Kira to live with them in their quarters so that they could help her care for her while she carried their  
child to term. While Kira carried her child, Keiko was captured by an alien entity known as a Pah-wraight 
who briefly gained control of her mind and body. The Pah-wraight had intended  to use Keiko in an elaborate  
plan to kill the Bajoran prophets. Fortunately, the plan failed, and Keiko was released from the entity.  
In 2373, kira delivered Kirayoshi O'Brien in a traditional Bajoran birthing ceremony
