Odo gets a visit from Dr. Mora Pol, the scientist who researched him in a laboratory on Bajor. Mora still seems to be unhappy with Odo's decision to leave for Deep Space Nine and Odo is still not happy with the way the scientist treated him. Mora gets him interested to resume work on finding his origins when he tells him a Bajoran science probe recently scanned a planet in the Gamma Quadrant and found DNA patterns looking just like Odo's. Sisko agrees to let Odo, Mora, Dax and the Bajoran doctor Weld take a runabout. On the planet they find a mysterious pillar and Dr. Weld finds the life-form the team is looking for. They decide to beam the pillar and the life-form on board and take them to DS9. Written by

Mora Pol was originally to be played by Rene Auberjonois himself, much as Data's creator Noonian Soong was played by Brent Spiner, and as The Doctor's creator Lewis Zimmerman would later be played by Robert Picardo, but this plan was scrapped when it was realized how much time it would take each day to get Auberjonois out of one make-up and into another. Most DS9 episodes were shot in 7 days, but it was estimated that with Auberjonois playing both parts it would take at least 14 to complete the shoot. See more
While trying to console Odo when the the researcher who first was assigned to work with Odo falls ill, Sisko speaks about how difficult it was to see his own father get sick and grow frail, and how helpless he felt. Sisko concludes, "But, in the end, I knew there was nothing I could do," suggesting that his father died. However, as we learn later, Sisko's father is very much alive. See more
