Dax (Terry Farrell) welcomes Arjin (Geoffrey Blake), a young Trill initiate trying to qualify as a symbiont host candidate, to the station. Initially he worries about impressing the infamous Curzon Dax, but quickly learns that Jadzia is a formidable mentor in her own right.

While on a training mission in the Gamma Quadrant, the two encounter an unidentifiable mass that gets caught on their Runabout. Back on the station, the mass is placed in a containment chamber, but it is accidentally released. When it begins to grow, Dax learns that it is actually a rapidly expanding proto-universe, and it is exhibiting signs of life. As it threatens to engulf the station, Sisko (Avery Brooks) must make a divine decision - destroy it or watch it destroy the station..

A damaged Cardassian vessel arrives at the station carrying Quark's (Armin Shimerman) long lost love, Professor Natima Lang, (Mary Crosby) and two of her students. While repairing the vessel, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) discovers it was damaged by a Cardassian attack. When confronted, Natim admits that her students are leaders of the Cardassian underground movement and are being hunted by the military establishment.

When a Cardassian warship arrives and threatens the station, Garak (Andrew Robinson) explains that the students are terrorists and should be turned over to the Cardassian government, who will undoubtedly execute them. As Quark schemes to save the former love of his life, he breaks every Rule of Acquisition, and political machinations could still cost him everything he holds dear.
