Kira Nerys/Keiko O'Brien/Miles O'Brien is the non-canon relationship between Kira Nerys, Keiko O'Brien, and Miles O'Brien from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.


Keiko O'Brien and Miles O'Brien are canonically married.

During Keiko's second pregnancy, she is in a shuttle accident along with Julian Bashir and Kira Nerys. Miles and Keiko's unborn child is transferred into Kira's womb in an emergency procedure. The procedure cannot be reversed safely, meaning that Kira must carry the child to term. While Keiko and Miles are grateful, they miss the presence of their unborn child and invite Kira to move in. For several episodes, they live together. Miles gives a pregnant Kira massages and worries after her health; Keiko is also very friendly and shares a heartfelt conversation with Kira.

Canonically, Kira Nerys and Miles O'Brien become much closer than in their previous relationship as coworkers. The series has the two contemplate going on a vacation to a cabin in Bajor, which they quickly abandon as they realize that doing so would be too romantic.


Contrary to the series canon, the fandom tends to focus slightly more on the Keiko/Kira part of the relationship than Kira/Miles. Fanworks for the relationship are very rare, although the relationship seems quite common in headcanons and meta for the newer wave of DS9 fans on tumblr. Fans on tumblr often feature this relationship as part of a moresome, usually including Bashir/O'Brien.
