Garak and Bashir are waiting in line in the mess hall, when suddenly, Garak falls ill. An examination reveals an implant in his brain. The device - which was implanted a year earlier - is to prevent the bearer from giving away secrets whilst being interrogated, but, now, Garak's time is quickly running out, and Bashir looks for a way to save his friend's life. In the meantime, Garak tells him contradicting stories about his past. Written by

Oh, don't thank me. I'm not doing Garak any favors. He doesn't deserve a quick death. On the contrary, I want him to live a long, miserable life. I want him to grow old on that station, surrounded by people who hate him, knowing that he'll never come home again.
Dr. Julian Bashir
