While the last Cardassian on the station, tailor Garak tries to become friends with Dr. Bashir, a Bajoran vessel approaches the station at high speed, followed by a Cardassian ship. The Bajoran, Tahna Los, gets beamed onto DS9 just in time before his ship is blown up and asks for asylum. Benjamin Sisko seems reluctant, but major Kira Nerys knows him. He's a member of the Kon Ma, a terrorist organization fighting Cardassia, but also accused of crimes against Bajorans. Upon his promise that he no longer wants to be a Kon Ma, Sisko decides not to hand him over to the Cardassians, while Kira works on getting amnesty from the government for Kon Ma Members. Then two female Klingon outcasts, Lursa and B'Etor arrive at the station. Written by
