Dr. Bashir is talking with Cardassian tailor Garak when suddenly a Bajoran man with a Cardassian boy enters the bar. Garak tries to approach the boy but he seems very afraid and bites him. Rugal is a war orphan left behind by the Cardassians after the occupation as many others and was adopted by Bajorans. Just a minute after Bashir tells Sisko, he gets contacted by Gul Dukat. He seems very concerned about the orphans on Bajor and wants to rectify the situation. He is concerned the Bajorans are manipulating them into thinking the Cardassians are bad and asks for an investigation. While Rugal's Bajoran father tells he's been treating the boy well and Rugal seems to prefer staying on Bajor, an alien, Zolan, contradicts that story. Meanwhile Garak thinks the situation is a bit too coincidental and starts his own private investigation with Bashir. Written by

Children without parents have no status in Cardassian society. The situation is most unfortunate, but I don't make the rules.
But you *do* play the game, don't you, Garak? And there is a game being played right now as we speak, isn't there?
There are always games, Doctor.
The trouble is, I don't have the slightest idea what this game is all about. So you're gonna tell me what's going on inside that plain and simple head of yours, my Cardassian friend, or we're gonna sit here until we rot!
