Storyline

The Federation is helping the Bajorans to tap the molten core of the moon Jeraddo. This will provide much-needed energy for hundreds of thousands of Bajoran citizens, but will make the moon uninhabitable. All 47 known inhabitants have been evacuated, but Dax still detects one life sign. Major Kira Nerys beams down to investigate and meets three people, farmer Mullibok and two mute helpers. Mullibok invites her to dinner and makes it perfectly clear he has no intention of leaving. Although he is very stubborn Kira starts to grow fond of the man. Meanwhile Nog overhears his uncle Quark punishing his father for buying 5.000 wrappings of yamok sauce, loved by Cardassians but hated by the rest of the universe. Secretly Nog and Jake try to sell the stuff for bars of latinum. They contact a Lissepian trader, but he only has self-sealing stem bolts to offer. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Want to buy some self-sealing stem bolts?
22 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Bajoran government is planning to tap a nearby moon for energy and has evacuated the small population as the operation will make it uninhabitable. As Major Kira scans the surface she finds signs of life on the surface so beams down and discovers three people who are refusing to leave. As she gets to know the oldest of the three she grows to be sympathetic to his plight. When Bajoran security comes to take the group things go wrong and the man is wounded. Even so he refuses to leave and Kira insists on staying with him.

Meanwhile back on DS9 Quark is not pleased when his brother takes delivery of a large quantity of food which nobody except Cardassians like and not many Cardassians visit the station these days. Nog however sees it as a chance to make a profit, nobody on DS9 might want it but a ship heading to Cardassia might have something to trade for it and if that item has no obvious use they can always trade it to somebody who wants that.

While this episode wasn't packed with action it provided some good character development for Major Kira and the Jake/Rom subplot was better than most involving the station's two most commonly featured children. This episode also introduced the "self-sealing stem bolt" a piece of equipment that is mentioned several times throughout the series but who's use is never explained.
