Keiko's teaching the station's children about the wormhole, when Vedek Winn, one of the most important religious leaders of the Bajorans and a possible candidate to become the next Kai, arrives. She despises the scientific way Keiko chooses to explain the phenomenon, and calls it 'blasphemy.' She'll not allow it, and takes the Bajoran children of the school. Both Keiko and Winn are not willing to give in, and Sisko travels to Bajor to get the support of Vedek Bareil. Meanwhile chief O'Brien finds an interlock's missing from his toolkit. Together with a new engineer, Neela from Bajor, they start looking for it. They find it back in a corridor, together with the remains of ensign Aquino. It looks like an accident, but O'Brien has his doubts. Written by

Do you believe the Celestial Temple of the Prophets exists within the passage?
I respect that the Bajoran people believe that it does.
But that's not what you teach?
No, I don't teach Bajoran spiritual beliefs; that's your job. Mine is to open the children's minds to history, to literature, to mathematics, to science.
You *are* opening the children's minds - to blasphemy. And I cannot permit it to continue.
