Kai Opaka, the spiritual leader of the Bajorans announces a visit to DS9. She doesn't say much, but makes it implicitly clear she's interested in the wormhole. Sisko, Bashir, Kira take a runabout to show her the wormhole and pass through it to the other side. They receive a strange distress call coming from an unknown source. Sisko wants to return home, but Opaka tells him they should not take notice of her. The signal leads to a mysteries satellite network, which releases an energy burst disabling the runabout. They make a violent crash-down on a moon, Opaka dies almost instantly. It isn't long before the three are picked up by a group of unfriendly locals, the Ennis. They say they are put as prisoners on the moon after a long war with the Nol-Ennis, a war that is continued on the moon. When the Nol attack something strange happens. Written by

In the opening, Commander Sisko is studying Major Kira's file on a computer view screen. He turns the view screen off, but the very visible outlines of the file text (as well as Major Kira's photo) can easily be discerned on the darkened screen, revealing it to be a transparency illuminated from behind and not a true computer screen image.

I didn't know how or why, but when we came through the wormhole, I knew I wouldn't be returning. You must tell our people, Kira, that I have answered the call of the Prophets. I was brought here because it is time for these people to begin their healing process - just as you were brought here to begin yours.
