A team of Cardassian scientists comes to visit the station to help setup a subspace communications relay in the Gamma Quadrant. Suddenly a Vedek, Yarka, wants to speak with Sisko. He brings a warning from the prophets and advises not to let the Cardassians on the station. He refers to Trakor's third prophecy that tells that three vipers, the Cardassians, will return to their nest in the sky, Deep Space Nine, ultimately leading to the destruction of the Celestial Temple, the wormhole. Sisko and Kira dismiss it at first, since only two Cardassians scientists are coming. Then a third Cardassian scientist arrives and Kira begins to believe the prophecy. When more and more of the predictions are coming true, Sisko must make a choice between his Federation duties and his role as Emissary. Written by

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
I'll try to figure out what we should do next.
Well, I think our best bet would be to go...
Please! Please, just give me a moment to think.
Fine. I'll just sit here quietly.
Huh... In that case, could you get me a cup of red leaf tea?
