The crew of the station is preparing for an expected attack of the Jem'Hadar, but the prognosis are not looking good. Within two hours, the station will be taken over. Suddenly a cloaked ship is detected very close to the station. They are being hailed by captain Sisko. He's on board of the Defiant, a prototype of a new class of starships, a warship specifically designed to fight the Borg. The ship is flawed, but equipped with cloaking technology borrowed from the Romulans. Sisko and Starfleet's idea is not to wait for the Jem'Hadar to attack, but to penetrate into the Dominion's territory to in order to locate the Founders, and try to solve matters diplomatically.
