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

Did You Know?
The DS9 crew discuss the possibility of invasion by enemy "replicants." Although this name is often associated with Philip K. Dick
, it appears nowhere in Dick's works. It was created by the makers of the Dick-inspired film Blade Runner
(1982) as a synonym for Dick's use of "androids" which Blade Runner's writers considered to be too familiar and overused to hold the public's interest. ("Blade runner" itself was created to replace Dick's generic "bounty hunter" for the same reason.) See more
