For 3 bars of latinum, Quark buys the rights to salvage a stranded ship from the Gamma Quadrant. Apart from a crying baby, he doesn't find anything of value. Bashir notices the boy has a very fast metabolic rate, and is growing at an accelerated rate. Before the crew knows it, he's a teen, who starts fighting on the promenade. Only Odo's able to calm him down, and Jadzia realises he's Jem'Hadar. When Odo hears the boy's to be examined in a Federation laboratory, he convinces Sisko he should take charge of the young man. Odo wants to try to change his nature, so he could live on Deep Space Nine as a normal humanoid. Meanwhile, Sisko invites Jake's girlfriend, Mardah for dinner. She's 4 years older than Jake, and a Dabo girl at Quark's. Sisko's very opposed to their relationship. Written by

I also know what it's like to be a specimen in a laboratory. Oh, I'm sure they'll treat him very well. No one will risk harming their new prize. They'll be courteous, caring, treat him like he's among friends, but in the end, he'll be just another specimen to them, something to be analyzed and cataloged. Give me the chance to find out if he really is just a programed killing machine - or if we can help him become something else.
