Sisko gets an urgent message from Bajor and delivers some bad news to Kira. Kalem Aprem, First Minister of the Provisional Government, has died from a heart attack. Kira is very upset to hear spiritual leader Kai Winn has already been appointed as successor. Kira is concerned about the future of Bajor and she can't shake the feeling that giving Winn control of the government is a mistake. Suddenly Winn visits the station to see Kira. She has a favor to ask. Shakaar, the leader of Kira's resistance cell during the Cardassian occupation and now farmer, refuses to return some government-loaned soil reclamators. They are used to detoxify soil poisoned by the Cardassians. Winn wants to use them in the Rakantha province, once Bajor's most productive farmland. She thinks this will once again make export possible, increasing Bajor's changes of being accepted into the Federation. Kira agrees to talk to Shakaar. Written by

Did You Know?
It's just like in the old days. Every once in a while the Cardassians would get too close, and we'd turn around and give 'em a bloody nose.
Sometimes it was our nose that got bloodied.
