The runabout Ganges returns to Deep Space Nine in serious trouble. The ship has no power, the hatch can't be opened and oxygen is running out. Also there seems to be an extra person on board. O'Brien is able to open the hatch and recognizes the guest as Vash, a corrupt archaeologist, from his time on Enterprise. She tells she has been traveling in the Gamma Quadrant for two years and has collected artifacts there. O'Brien meanwhile can't find anything wrong with the ship other than the power was being drained. Then the same malfunction appears on DS9. Dangerous blackouts are hitting the station. Meanwhile Vash gets a unexpected visit in her quarters. It's Q, the omnipotent being and he seems upset Vash left him. He wants her back. Written by

Did You Know?
When O'Brien is escorting Vash to her quarters on the station, he is carrying her bag with the thick strap visible on his right shoulder. At the entrance to the cabin, the camera angle shifts to Vash, as she turns to face O'Brien. When the angle shifts again to O'Brien, the strap is gone, yet we have not seen him put the bag down (we know he did, however, as Vash is seen picking it up from the deck at the end of the scene).

An abysmal place.
Earth. Oh, don't get me wrong. Thousand years ago it had character - Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, Watergate... Now it's just mind-numbingly dull.
