Life seems to be slowly becoming normal on the station. Bashir tries to make advances to Dax, Jake makes friends with Nog and chief O'Brien is having an argument with his wife Keiko. As a botanist she feels useless on the station and doesn't think the environment is good enough for their daughter Molly growing up. Meanwhile Odo encounters a familiar face on the Promenade: the Bajoran smuggler Ibudan. He's considered a hero by the Bajorans, but Odo thinks differently. He saw him let a child die because the parents couldn't afford the medicine and when Ibudan killed a Cardassian he turned him in. When Ibudan is murdered during a massage in the holodeck, all evidence points to Odo.

Mr. Odo, you're not going to take the law into your own hands.
The law? Commander, laws change, depending on who's making them - Cardassians one day, Federation the next. But justice is justice.
