Ezri Dax joins Sisko and his family on his quest for the Orb of the Emissary. Colonel Kira mounts a blockade around a Bajoran moon, where the Romulan hospital is - along with thousands of Romulan missles (claimed to be defensive in purpose). Quark joins Bashir & O'Brien as they join Worf, aboard a Klingon warship as they mount a dangerous mission in Jadzia Dax's name in an effort to get her spirit into Sto-vo-kor, the Klingon's heaven.
