O'Brien is on his way to the planet Parada to warn them about something and is chased by the crew of Deep Space Nine through the wormhole. In his log he tells what happened. Deep Space Nine was supposed to host peace talks between the Paradans and a rebel faction and O'Brien was supposed to make sure the security to be top notch. He immediately noticed something strange when Keiko and Molly didn't seem to be themselves. In engineering, he found out another engineer was ordered by Sisko to already start work on the security measures. Sisko told him to concentrate on the repair of the upper pylons and ordered him to undergo a very extensive medical examination. O'Brien especially got suspicious after he found out he lost his level 1 security clearance after trying to review the logs of the security personnel. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

I love paranoid episodes!
18 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better episodes of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9". Much of it is because the tone is very dark and paranoid--just the sort of thing I love!!

The show begins with O'Brien alone on a runabout--fleeing from Deep Space 9! He then sits down and begins to dictate his log--at which time you see a lengthy flashback. Here in the flashback, O'Brien starts to see how strangely everyone is acting on the space station. While nothing is concrete, he KNOWS that everyone is behaving strangely and some plot is obviously brewing. But what?!

I could say more, but frankly don't want to spoil the show. The bottom line is that the answer is very inventive and the show really is creative and strange. Well worth seeing.
