Kira and Bashir are returning from the opening of a hospital on New Bajor in the Gamma Quadrant. Just as they're to enter the wormhole, a sudden problem arises. Kira is able to solve it, but when they arrive in the Alpha Quadrant things seems to have changed. Deep Space Nine is once again orbiting Bajor and the runabout is entered by Klingons, who excuse themselves when they see Kira. It soon becomes clear the two have arrived in alternate universe. Klingons, Cardassians and Bajorans have formed an alliance against Earth and humans are forced to do slave labor on Deep Space Nine. The station is led by intendant Kira. She speaks of a person named 'Kirk,' who traveled from the other side earlier. While Bashir is sent away to ore processing, intendant Kira seems to really like her other self.

["Smiley" O'Brien has refused to help Bashir escape
Just tell me where the runabout pads are. I know you, Miles O'Brien. Somewhere inside of you there is a shred of decency. There has to be.
I *am* a decent man. I just... I just... You don't understand, I can't help you, I-I can't. They'll kill me.
You're already dead. I'm sorry you don't see that. The life inside every human being here, every Terran, died a long time ago.
