Stardate 46925.1
The irrepressible Lwaxana Troi (Majel Barrett), mother of the Enterprise's counselor Deanna Troi, visits the station with a group of Federation ambassadors. When Lwaxana's broach is stolen at Quark's, Odo (René Auberjonois) catches the thief and returns it. She is immediately taken with the shape-shifter.

Meanwhile, an unidentified alien probe comes through the wormhole. As O'Brien (Colm Meaney) studies the vessel with the stations computer, Odo struggles to fend off Lwaxana's advances. Much to his chagrin, they are trapped together in one of the turbolifts - alone at last.

Back in Ops, O'Brien believes the probe has somehow altered the stations computer, but his attempts to fix the problem result in a massive plasma explosion in the guests quarters. Now all of the ambassadors lives are at risk!

Stardate 46922.2
A Klingon ship blasts through the wormhole and explodes, but not before an injured Klingon, shrouded in a strange violet light, transports to the station and dies.

Soon, everyone on board begins to undergo bizarre personality changes: Bashir (Siddig El Fadil) becomes cold and calculating; O'Brien (Colm Meaney) turns power hungry and suspicious; Dax (Terry Farrell) grows dreamy and distant; and Major Kira (Nana Visitor) plots to overthrow Sisko (Avery Brooks).

The only one who seems to be unaffected is Odo (René Auberjonois). While he searches for clues to the crew's mysterious behavior, the senior officers begin to choose sides as the battle for control of the station rages. Odo is the only one who can avert a full-fledged mutiny!

Stardate Unknown
A Kobheerian freighter arrives at the station carrying a Cardassian passenger suffering from a medical condition known as Kalla-Nohra. Upon seeing the visitor, Major Kira (Nana Visitor) immediately arrests him, citing that the only place he could have contracted Kalla-Nohra was at Gallitepp, a Bajoran forced labor camp. Though he denies the accusation, the Cardassian, tentatively identified as a teacher, is held captive while Kira investigates his background.

A photograph from Bajoran archives reveals that this teacher is actually Gul Darhe'el, the "Butcher of Gallitepp." When Kira confronts him with the information, the Cardassian says it's true - but an even deeper secret remains.

Vedek Winn (Louise Fletcher), a Bajoran spiritual leader, objects to Keiko's (Rosalind Chao) scientific teachings about the worm hole. When Commander Sisko (Avery Brooks) tries to resolve the conflict, the Vedek claims Keiko has dishonored the Prophets and unless she recants there will be dire consequences. Hoping for a peaceful solution, Sisko seeks advice from Vedek Bariel (Philip Anglim), the leading candidate to become Bajor's next Kai. But when a bomb blast destroys the school, tension between the Bajorans and the Federation mounts.

Meanwhile, Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) discovers that an important tool is missing and the Ensign who took it was murdered. Hoping for a peaceful solution, Sisko seeks advice from Vedek Bareil (Philip Anglim), the leading candidate to become Bajor's next Kai. But when a bomb blast destroys the school, tension between the Bajorans and the federation mounts.

As the two Vedeks come together to examine the wreckage, O'Brien uncovers the identity of the ensign's killer - and a shocking conspiracy to assassinate one of the Vedeks.
