Miles O'Brien exists in the mirror universe first discovered by James T. Kirk in the original series episode "Mirror, Mirror".

In the episode "Visionary", O'Brien had an accident in which he was poisoned by radiation and experienced several time shifts, each five hours into the future, witnessing a bar brawl, his own death twice, and the destruction of the station. At the end of the episode, he deliberately subjected himself to more radiation in order to time shift to the future to see exactly what caused the destruction. But the radiation was too much, and the past O'Brien died, while the future O'Brien went back in time to tell Sisko that there was a cloaked Romulan D'deridex starship circling the station, plotting to destroy it. The Star Trek fictional universe has presented a number of designs for Romulan starships. ...


When visiting Argrathl, O'Brien asked too many questions and was quickly convicted of espionage and sentenced to 20 years simulated incarceration compressed into a short time span (in the episode "Hard Time"). In the simulation, Ee'char was his cellmate, and, eventually, his friend. O'Brien killed Ee'char in a jealous rage upon discovering one night that Ee'char had a small food stash that he'd kept secret from their captors (and from O'Brien as well, in the process) but afterward O'Brien realized that Ee'char had been planning to share it with him. When O'Brien came back to DS9, he felt such intense guilt at having been capable of violently murdering his best and only friend - even if it was all only a simulation - that he was constantly haunted by visions of Ee'char and seriously considered suicide. Dr. Bashir gave him a medicine to prevent future hallucinations, but told him he'd still have to go to a counselor to deal with the feelings of guilt.


When Sisko had a vision about racial prejudice in 1950s Earth, O'Brien appeared in the vision as a science-fiction writer named Albert who avoided issues of race by writing about robots.


At the end of Deep Space Nine, O'Brien and his family moved back to Earth, where Miles became a professor of engineering at Starfleet Academy.

Rank

During his appearances on TNG, he was shown as being of officer rank, initially an ensign, subsequently a lieutenant, sometimes wearing one silver pip, sometimes two. However, in the episode "Family", Worf's father Sergey Rozhenko called him a "chief petty officer". O'Brien did not object to this, although he could have held his tongue in politeness. In the military of various countries, ensign is a junior rank of commissioned officer. ... A Lieutenant is a military, paramilitary or police officer. ...

On DS9, he was presented (and explicitly described himself) as being of enlisted rank. He consistently wore on his collar a black square with three chevrons on it, analogous to a present day US Navy chief petty officer insignia. If he was indeed a chief petty officer at the time of the meeting with Sergey, it is likely that he could have been promoted to a higher enlisted rank upon transfer to Deep Space Nine.
