Deep Space Nine detects an unknown ship coming from the Gamma Quadrant at the other side of the wormhole. The ship has severe engine trouble and its pilot seems very nervous and reluctant to accept any help. Finally O'Brien convinces him to come on board. He introduces himself as Tosk and he apparently comes from a very different culture as he understands nothing of the ways of the Alpha Quadrant. He claims the wormhole caused the ship's problems. O'Brien seems to really like the guy, but senses quickly he has a secret. He also finds out Tosk lied, discovering his ship has weapons damage. Then Tosk is caught trying to open a weapons locker by Odo. Written by

In the previous entry Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Babel
, Quark was trying to use the computer to locate the functioning replicators, but the computer's security prevented him from doing so until he changed some data rods, in effect, hacking into the computer. Yet now, when Tosk asks the computer where the weapons are stored, the computer shows him without any resistance whatsoever. It would seem the location of the stations weapons would be much more security sensitive than the food replicators. See more
