The Cardassian freighter Bok'Nor is blown up while leaving Deep Space Nine. It doesn't look like an accident. While both the Federation and Bajor expect retaliation by the Cardassians, they haven't even made contact. Then Commander Calvin Hudson arrives to discuss the tense situation. He is attaché to the Federation colonies in the Demilitarised Zone and a good friend of Sisko. Hudson tries to convince Sisko giving away territory to the Cardassians was a bad idea and that the Federation colonists on the Cardassian side are abandoned. Sisko still believes the treaty was a reasonable compromise. When he returns to his quarters, he is surprised to find Gul Dukat. Gul Dukat tells Federation citizens were responsible for the attack and wants to show him something in the Demilitarised Zone. After arriving the two receive a distress call from a Federation merchant vessel under attack by Cardassians. Written by

Now do you begin to see, Commander? That without any help from either one of us they've managed to start their own little war out here.
