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 a free election. If you wanna run, go ahead, but if you do, this entire incident is gonna be made public. And when the people know the real facts, when they know that you risked a civil war over a couple of pieces of farm equipment, they're never gonna trust you again. You'll still be Kai, the spiritual leader of Bajor. But your days in this office are numbered. So if I were you... I'd start packing.
