Deep Space Nine beams aboard four aliens that have just traveled through the wormhole. The universal translator has a hard time picking up their language, but the four are finally able to identify themselves as Skrreans. Their leader, Haneek, tells they are a race that has been conquered by the T-Rogorans, who in turn have been conquered over by the Dominion. Most of their leaders were killed. Now three million Skrreans are adrift and looking for refuge. She is the first to find they 'Eye of the Universe'. According to Skrrean legends their mythical home Kentanna, a sorrowed world, is just behind the Eye. Sisko and Kira agree to help the Skreaans and soon hundreds of them visit the station. While Sisko thinks he found a suitable planet to relocate them, Draylon II, Haneek makes a discovery of her own. Written by
