While traveling in a runabout, Bashir (Siddig El Fadil) and Kira (Nana Visitor) respond to a distress call from a disabled Kobliad ship. When they beam over, Bashir is attacked by an injured passenger - a murderer named Rao Vantaka (James Harper), who suddenly dies.

Back aboard Deep Space Nine, the Kobliad security officer Ty Kajada (Caitlin Bloom) insists on an autopsy to prove Vantika, who has a history of faking his own demise, is truly dead. Meanwhile, the crew determines that Vantika was probably coming to the station to hi-jack a freighter carrying deuridium, a rare substance that prolongs Kobliad life.

When Odo (René Auberjonois) tries to implement a security plan to protect the ship, he discovers that the station computers memory has been purged. The crew is now convinced that Vantaka may be hiding in someone else's brain - and so the hunt for the passenger begins.

Sensing a profit-making opportunity, Quark (Armin Shimerman) encourages the aliens to play Dabo, and they begin to win. But when Quark is caught rigging the game, Falow forces him to play a new game called Chula. When the game begins, Sisko and his senior officers disappear from the station and find themselves trapped in a dangerous alien labyrinth.

Grand Nagus Zek (Wallace Shaw), the revered leader of the Ferengi business empire, pays a visit to Quark (Armin Shimerman), who worries that the legendary Ferengi wants to buy his bar out from under him. Instead, Zek plans an important conference at the bar to discuss the future of Ferengi business in the Gamma Quadrant. There, to everyone's surprise, he announces his retirement and selects Quark to replace him!

After a few threatening encounters, Grand Nagus Quark quickly learns that great power comes with great danger. When Zek dies, Quark barely avoids an assassination attempt at the funeral. Soon the greedy new Nagus finds himself trapped in a treacherous battle for power - and like a true Ferengi he loves every second of it.

After a Miradorn twin is killed during a botched heist, Odo (René Auberjonois) arrests Croden (Cliff DeYoung), an alien from the Gamma Quadrant. The surviving twin, Ah-Kel (Randy Oglesby), swears he will avenge his brother's death and kill Croden.

In a holding cell, Croden tells Odo that he has seen other shape-shifters in the Gamma Quadrant. Initially Odo is suspicious, but when Croden shows him a stone from the Charma Vortex with shape-shifting properties, his suspicion turns to intrigue.

Later Odo escorts Croden back to his home planet to stand trial. En route, Ah-Kel attacks their Runabout and they are forced to land on the asteroid where the shape-shifters supposedly live. Now Odo may finally get the chance to meet others like himself!
