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
