A team of Cardassian scientists comes to visit the station to help set up a subspace communications relay in the Gamma Quadrant. Suddenly a Vedek, named Yarka, wants to speak with Sisko. He brings a warning from the prophets and advises to refuse Cardassians access to the station. He refers to Trakor's third prophecy which tells of 3 vipers - the Cardassians - who return to their nest in the sky - Deep Space Nine - which ultimately leads to the destruction of the Celestial Temple - the wormhole. Sisko and Kira dismiss it at first, since only two Cardassians scientists are coming. But, when a third Cardassian scientist arrives, Kira begins to give the prophecy credence. With more and more of the predictions are coming true, Sisko must make a choice: his Federation duties, or his role as Emissary. Written by

One of the sets that was created for the Defiant is the generic crew cabin where Sisko and Kira go to discuss "the sword of stars" which, thanks to three removable (or "wild") walls, has a number of possible looks. As Robert della Santina explains, "There's only one wall that isn't wild. It's the one that includes the doorway. That's a double-faced wall that also serves as part of the corridor. But the director can pull out any of the other walls to give the room any one of three different looks." See more
The crew of the Defiant observe a comet near to the gamma quadrant exit to the worm hole. The comet has a tail - comets only develop tails as they approach a star. The star heats up the comet, which produces a tail of water vapor which always points away from the star. See more
