Fate conspired differently. Death passed Tasha by. Given the time to evolve, a relationship she'd dismissed as a one night stand became the most complicated love affair she'd know. Series of stories spanning the show & movies.
Alternate Universe: Several. Tasha appears to be sensitive to appearances of this trope, quoting Guinan when in that particular universe, she doesn't even exist and realizing that something happened when the Enterprise-C showed up, even though no one else except Guinan remembers.
Besides the one featured in the fic, the Worf native to the Rollercoaster-verse travels to the canon TNG-verse, a universe where Data died on Vagra III, one where Data was never invented and Dr. Pulaski serves as CMO, and another where Q turned Data human after the events of Deja Q, Picard, Shelby, and Wesley at least have been assimilated by the Borg, and Data and Tasha are married. In the last two, Worf and Deanna are married.
Call Forward: Chapters 31-33, set during "Descent," drops strong hints about the Borg Queen and her interest in Data.
Cassandra Truth: During the AU events of "Descent," Lore talks with a drone semi-reconnected to the Collective. The drone tries to tell Lore about the Borg Queen's interest in Data. Lore doesn't care, and nicknames the drone "The Oracle."
Timey-Wimey Ball: Data and Tasha each get hit by one: Data's head came back from 1890 San Francisco the long way, and Tasha, due to the events of Yesterday's Enterprise, has a half-Romulan daughter nearly her own age.
