A plasma storm is approaching the station and almost all personnel has been evacuated, only a skeleton crew remains. Suddenly a distress call from a cargo ship comes in and Sisko decides to respond. A tractor beam pulls it in, but it's no cargo ship at all. Two Klingons, a Trill and a female Khefkan overpower Odo and O'Brien and then the rest of the crew. The Trill, Verad, is unjoined and seems very frustrated about that. He thinks his life is mediocre and wants Dax's symbiont. Bashir is forced to perform the operation that will mean Dax's life will end soon. Written by
