Jake's traveling with Doctor Bashir, to write a report about his activities. It's different from what he expected though, all Julian talks about is prion replications, amino acid re-sequencing and quantum dynamics. Jake would rather write a report about the doctor battling Cartalian fever, for example and thinks that readers would relate to that more. Jake's wish for more action may come true when a distress call is sent in from the Ajilon Prime colony. They are under attack by the Klingons. They urgently need medical supplies and a doctor in a hospital near the front line. Bashir doesn't want to take Sisko's son with him, but Jake is able to convince him otherwise. Jake is delighted, but is the young reporter really prepared for the horror that is war? Meanwhile captain Sisko hears the Farragut will pick the two up the next day, but gets more anxious as time progresses. Written by

Some people say that you don't know what you're really made of until you've been in battle.
Well, let me tell you, Jake. There are many situations in life which test a person's character. Thankfully, most of them don't involve death and destruction.
