O'Brien and Jake are preparing one of the old ore processing units to convert it for use as a deuterium refinery. Sisko checks up on them, just as Jake finds a strange file in the database which can't be deleted. O'Brien accidentally trips a Cardassian security alert, and must enter a password, but fails. Suddenly, the room's locked down, and a recorded message from Gul Dukat appears on view screens, warning the 'Bajoran workers' to surrender, or face consequences. But their troubles, and that of the station's, are far from over. Written by

"Civil Defense" resembles the Voyager episode "Worst Case Scenario". In both episodes the crew trigger a computer program which they are unable to shut down and which proves life-threatening. In "Civil Defense", the program becoming a threat to the crew was accidental. In "Worst Case Scenario", however, the program had been placed there specifically for that purpose. Coincidentally, in both episodes the programs' creators are Cardassian. See more
