Quark introduces Altovar, a Lethean to Dr. Bashir. He wants to buy biomimetic gel - a restricted substance, Bashir rebuffs the request. Soon, he finds the Lethean breaking in to the infirmary. Altovar attacks Bashir with a telepathic weapon and the doctor passes out. When he awakes, the lights are malfunctioning. No one answers their communicator, and the entire station seems to be deserted and in a state of disarray. Julian caches a glimpse of himself, notices he has gray hair, and seems to be rapidly aging. The sound of whispers and loud noises coming from the bar. sends Julian towards the bar, where he finds Quark, afraid and trying to hide. Quark mentions someone is going to kill them all, then runs for his life. The questions are: who is going to kill them, why is Dr. Bashir appear to be aging rapidly, and why are the few people on DS9 acting so abnormally? Written by

You're staying right here, trapped on this station, watching while I destroy you piece by piece. And when all the best parts of you are gone, when there's nothing left but a withered shell, then - and only then - will I put you out of your misery.
You can't escape, Doctor. You can run if you want to, but you can't outrun death!
