Quark (Armin Shimerman) receives a mysterious Bajoran earring which was smuggled out of a prison camp on Cardassia IV. Major Kira (Nana Visitor) recognizes it as belonging to Li Nalas (Richard Beymer), a legendary Bajoran resistance fighter. Planning a rescue, she begs Commander Sisko (Avery Brooks) for a Runabout. He agrees, but insists that O'Brien (Colm Meaney) must accompany her. Meanwhile, graffiti bearing the insignia of The Circle, an extremist group that wants to rid Bajor of all outsiders, is found on the station.

On Cardassia IV, Kira and O'Brien execute a daring rescue and return to the station with Li and the other survivors. Later, Bajoran Minister Jaro (Frank Langella) arrives to welcome Li home and, much to Sisko's dismay, announces that Li will be the new Liaison Officer to Deep Space Nine. Part one of three.

After Major Kira (Nana Visitor) is recalled to Bajor, more graffiti from the extremist group The Circle is found around the station. While Commander Sisko (Avery Brooks) fights to have Kira reinstated, Vedek Bareil (Philip Anglim) invites her to his monastery where she experiences a series of strange visions.

Back on the station, Odo (René Auberjonois) learns that the Kressari have been supplying arms to The Circle. Shapeshifting his way onto a Kressari freighter, he discovers that is the Cardassians who are behind the arms shipments!

When Kira is kidnapped and taken to The Circle's hideout, she finds Minister Jaro (Frank Langella) is the leader. Now, with Bajor set to erupt into full-scale revolution, assault vessels race toward the station. But rather than evacuate, Sisko plans to make one last stand. Part two of three.

Stardate Unknown
With less than five hours remaining before Bajoran assault vessels attack the station, Sisko (Avery Brooks) orders an evacuation. Kira (Nana Visitor) insists the only hope of stopping The Circle, an extremist group that wants to rid Bajor of all outsiders, is to get proof of the Cardassian involvement in the coup to Bajor's Chamber of Ministers. While she and Dax (Terry Farrell) embark on a desperate mission to alert the provisional government, Sisko and a team of officers remain on board and prepare to make the final stand against the Bajoran raiders. The fate of the station - and all of Bajor - lies in their hands. Part three of three.

A violent plasma storm forces the evacuation of the station, leaving a skeleton crew behind. When Verad Dax (John Glover), a desperate Trill, schemes his way on board with some Klingon mercenaries, he takes the remaining crew members hostage and forces Dr. Bashir (Siddig El Fadil) to transplant Jadzia's (Terry Farrell) symbiont to him.

While Bashir struggles to keep Jadzia alive, Sisko (Avery Brooks) urges Dax to return the symbiont, but he refuses. Unable to convince him, Sisko turns his attention to Mareel (Megan Gallagher), Dax's humanoid mate. But time is running out for Jadzia.
