Exhausted from trying to fix an epidemic of mechanical problems on the station, Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) becomes ill with a mysterious ailment that transforms speech into an incomprehensible babble. When Lt. Dax (Terry Farrell) succumbs to the same ailment, tests reveal that both have been infected by the same virus. Soon the virus causes an epidemic of babbling on Deep Space Nine, and Commander Sisko (Avery Brooks) is forced to put the entire station under quarantine.

While searching for the source of the outbreak, Major Kira Nerys (Nana Visitor) stumbles upon a Bajoran device planted some 18 years earlier. Now it's up to her to track down the virus' creator and find a cure before the epidemic turns deadly.

Stardate Unknown
Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) befriends a mysterious alien who comes through the Wormhole in a badly damaged ship. The first of his species to come to Deep Space Nine, Tosk (Scott MacDonald) is a unique reptilian-like creature whose behavior patterns are so different from humans that he arouses the suspicions of the crew. When he is caught altering a security grid near the weapons locker, he refuses to answer any questions, but his silence is explained when an alien hunter (Gerrit Graham) arrives and reveals that Tosk is the prey in a deadly game of pursuit.

Now Commander Sisko (Avery Brooks) is faced with a dilemma - he cannot save their new friend from the hunter without flagrantly violating Starfleet's Prime Directive.

While Quark (Armin Shimerman) helps Vash auction off some of the mysterious treasures she has acquired, the crew struggles to find the cause of the power source be station is torn apart.

Stardate 46610.1
Hiding in the shadows, Ilone Tandro (Gregory Itzin) of Klaestron IV attempts to kidnap Lt. Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell) from the station. After the attempt fails, he produces a warrant charging Curzon Dax (her former Trill host) for the murder of his father, General Ardelon Trandro, thirty years before.

Though Dax refuses to discuss the events surrounding the crime, Sisko (Avery Brooks) requires an extradition hearing and mounts a defense on her behalf, dispatching Odo to Klaestron IV to investigate.

While many relevant details of Trill life are revealed as the hearing progresses, Jadzia has no alibi for Curzon's whereabouts during the crime. As the evidence piles up and the pressure mounts, Odo discovers a shocking secret that may prove fatal.
