Bashir and O'Brien are in a laboratory in orbit of T'Lani III. They are helping the T'Lani and Kellerun to try to destroy dangerous biological weapons called 'harvesters'. They were used by both species in a devastating war that lasted for a long time. Recently they signed peace and now they want to destroy any reference to the harvesters to ensure they will never be used again. Bashir and O'Brien manage to neutralize one of the harvesters and both species are very pleased. They even invite them to a celebration party. When the last harvester is about to be destroyed, suddenly two armed Kellerun enter the laboratory and start shooting everyone. Bashir and O'Brien are only barely able to escape, but have nowhere to go. O'Brien starts repairing a transmitter. Suddenly he gets very cold. Meanwhile the T'Lani and Kellerun ambassador travel to DS9. They bring the news of the passing of Bashir and O'Brien in an accident. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Saved by coffee
17 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When two alien races, the Kellerun and the T'Lani, who have been at war for centuries invite Dr. Bashir and Chief O'Brien to help them destroy particularly nasty biological weapons known as harvesters it looks like a fairly safe mission till Kellerun soldiers attack the site as the last of the harvesters is being neutralised and kill everybody apart from the two Star Fleet officers who manage to beam down to the planet below where they must try to find away to contact friendly forces before Kelleruns find them; matters are complicated by the fact that O'Brien has been contaminated by with the harvesters. Back on DS9 Sisko is summoned to Ops and informed that his two crew members died when O'Brien accidentally tripped an old security system which vaporised everybody in the room. When his wife Keiko is told she asks to see the security recording and after examining it is convinced it has been fabricated as it shows her husband drinking coffee and he never touches it in the afternoon. This may be fairly flimsy evidence, certainly too little to confront anybody with, but Sisko and Dax return to the site, ostensibly to recover the runabout.

This was an exciting episode which along with several others this series has helped develop the friendship between Bashir and O'Brien as they work together on the planet and discuss how Star Fleet effects relationships, something the two of them have different views on. It was nice that the motivation for killing those present at the harvesters' destruction wasn't that one side wanted to gain an advantage but that both wanted to make sure that all knowledge of them was destroyed along with the weapons themselves. The best moment in the episode is saved for the final scene; as O'Brien recovers back on DS9 he casually asks Keiko for a coffee... even though it is the afternoon.
