The Federation is helping the Bajorans to tap the molten core of the moon Jeraddo. This will provide much-needed energy for hundreds of thousands of Bajoran citizens, but will make the moon uninhabitable. All 47 known inhabitants have been evacuated, but Dax still detects one life sign. Major Kira Nerys beams down to investigate and meets three people, farmer Mullibok and two mute helpers. Mullibok invites her to dinner and makes it perfectly clear he has no intention of leaving. Although he is very stubborn Kira starts to grow fond of the man. Meanwhile Nog overhears his uncle Quark punishing his father for buying 5.000 wrappings of yamok sauce, loved by Cardassians but hated by the rest of the universe. Secretly Nog and Jake try to sell the stuff for bars of latinum. They contact a Lissepian trader, but he only has self-sealing stem bolts to offer.

Aron Eisenberg had some difficulty with this story considering that his role's teeth appliances interfered with pronouncing consonants in his dialogue, particularly in this case with the word, "stembolts." Considering that he was at most a recurring guest star at this time of the series' run, Eisenberg had a disconcertingly frustrating time with one scene which took over 19 takes before he could say his line properly, momentarily fueling his fear that he could be considered too difficult to continue in the role. Furthermore, when Eisenberg finally pronounced his line properly, Cirroc Lofton complicated matters by flubbing his own one word line in response because he didn't expect Eisenberg to say his own line well enough for the take to continue.
