Stardate Unknown
Bajor's spiritual leader, Kai Opaka (Camille Saviola), visits the station for the first time. After a tour, Sisko (Avery Brooks), Bashir (Siddig El Fadil) and Kira (Nana Visitor) agree to accompany her on a trip through the wormhole.

When their Runabout is attacked, it crash lands on a small moon. The Kai is killed and the officers are captured by a race of battle-scared humanoids trapped in an endless war.

After a brutal enemy attack, the Kai appears - alive and well! Soon all the soldiers who were killed in the attack also come back to life and Sisko learns that as long as they are on this planet, the combatants cannot die - but if the station officers die, even once, they can never leave! Can they escape before suffering a fate worse than death?

Commander Sisko (Avery Brooks) is asked to mediate a dispute between two rival Bajoran factions. To everyone's surprise, one of the negotiators, Varis Sul (Gina Philips), turns out to be a 15-year-old girl.

Meanwhile, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) and Bashir (Siddig El Fadil) beam down to a Bajoran village in grave danger - their leader, the Sirah (Kay E. Kutler), is sick and if he dies the village will be destroyed by a terrible creature, the Dal'Rok. That night, as the Dal'Rok approaches, the Sirah tells a story uniting the people of the village, but he weakens and O'Brien is forced to step in and help.

As Varis struggles to negotiate a peaceful solution for her people, O'Brien must find a new storyteller to take his place - or the villagers will never let him leave.

Stardate 46844.3
In search of more energy, the Bajoran government plans to tap the molten core of their fifth moon, Jeraddo. During an inspection of the moon's surface, Kira (Nana Visitor) discovers a Bajoran farmer, Mullibok (Brian Keith), who refuses to leave.

Meanwhile, on the station, Nog (Aron Eisenberg) and Jake (Cirroc Lofton) try to make a quick buck by selling some Cardassian yamock sauce Quark (Armin Shimerman) has been stuck with. But the prospective buyer offers a trade instead and the wheeling and dealing begins.

Back on Jeraddo, Kira attempts to forcibly remove Mullibok in the name of progress. As Jake and Nog's desperation to make a profit grows, so does Kira's desire to save the old man; but he is stubborn, and it could cost him his life.

Stardate 46853.2
Imaginations run wild when Rumpelstiltskin (Michael John Anderson), legendary baseball player Buck Bokai (Keone Young) and a duplicate Dax (Terry Farrell) appear on the station.

An investigation reveals that the crew's fantasies are somehow coming to life and wreaking havoc. Dax surmises the anomaly is being caused by a disruption in the plasma field - it seems a similar subspace rupture occurred in the Hanoli system and destroyed it.

As the danger mounts, the crew devises a plan to seal the rupture with a modified photon torpedo, but the attempt fails. Sisko (Avery Brooks) must put his mind over his imagination in order to avert a major disaster.
