Storyline

Chief O'Brien, suddenly pokes a phaser in Sisko's back and disappears with the captain through the transporter. It soon becomes clear he has been taken to the mirror universe, where Kira and Bashir got stuck earlier. O'Brien tells how their mirror Sisko had been the leader of a rebellion against the Klingon-Cardassian-Bajoran alliance, but he recently died. Sisko tells O'Brien he is not interested in replacing him, but his interest is piqued when O'Brien mentions the name "Jennifer Sisko", and in the mirror universe, Sisko's wife is alive and working for the alliance.

Trivia

The raider's corridor, transporter room, and the turbolift, are redresses of the USS Defiant sets, using computer graphics from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. To make it look different, the lighting department had a harsh red light to make contrast to the bright white lights of "our" universe. The raider's bridge was a redress of the Runabout cockpit which had been re-dressed in the same style several months earlier as the Maquis raider Val Jean in VOY: "Caretaker". See more »

Goofs

Sisko refers to alternate-universe Jadzia as "Dax" but the best logic holds that alternate-universe Jadzia was not joined. It was most likely a pretty careless mistake by the writers, starting to treat "Dax" like just her last name rather than an indication of joined status. See more »

Quark: Vole infestations are not uncommon on this station. If you don't believe me, ask Chief O'Brien.
Odo: When I came in, he and Morn were painting numbers on the voles' backs.
Quark: We were just... counting them, to see how many we'd caught.
Commander Sisko: You were getting ready to stage a vole fight.
Quark: A vole fight? I'm appalled. Do you really think that was what Morn was up to?
Commander Sisko: Constable, I want the voles confiscated and removed from the station.
Quark: You can't confiscate Morn's...
