Kira has been asked by Shakaar to attend a conference on a remote Cardassian outpost. The two governments will exchange intelligence about the Klingons. The Major will be personally brought to this location by Gul Dukat. Ever since he brought his half Bajoran daughter Ziyal to Cardassia, things haven't been going well for him. He was stripped of his rank and is now a simple freighter captain. But, so he ensures Kira, it is only a temporary setback for him. When Kira arrives in Cardassian space, the outpost has been attacked by a Klingon bird-of-prey. All the diplomats are dead. Kira suggests mounting an outpost disruptor on the freighter to go after the Klingons. While Kira wants revenge for the dead diplomats, Dukat sees this as the perfect opportunity to redeem himself.

While Major Kira is showing Ziyal the features of the Federation phaser rifle, she opens and closes the "fully autonomous recharge" component on the bottom of the rifle (heard locking back in to place). A few moments later, it accidentally drops loose when she demonstrates how the rifle is gyro-stabilized by tossing it in her hands. See more

By the way, Major, what is this I hear about you and Shakaar?
Major Kira Nerys
I don't know what you've heard.
First it was Vedek Bareil, and now it's the head of the Bajoran government. You do like powerful men, don't you?
Major Kira Nerys
First of all, Shakaar's an old friend. Second of all, what business is it of yours?
Let's just say it's further incentive for me to regain my former position.
