There's a party on Deep Space Nine as Sisko has just been promoted to captain. Ambassador Krajensky is present at the party, but he hasn't just come to congratulate Sisko. He tells there's been a coup d'état on the Tzenkethi home world. They were once at war with the Federation and Krajensky wants to remind them that Federation is still committed to the protection of the colonies. Sisko takes the Defiant to Tzenkethi space. While working on the ship O'Brien hears some strange sounds. He finds Julian working in a Jefferies tube. Julian claims to have connected a new diagnostic console. Not long after the communications array malfunctions. O'Brien and Dax discover a parasitic tube-like system that is invading the ship's equipment, protected by a forcefield. It's right next to the place where Bashir connected his medical console. Written by
