Kira (Nana Visitor) receives a communication from a Bajoran archivist doing a study on a Cardassian detention center. Records indicate that Kira was held there, but she has no recollection of it. After speaking with a witness who recognizes here from the center, Kira travels to Bajor in search of the truth, but is kidnapped en route. She awakens on the Cardassian homeworld where officials from the Obsidian Order reveal that she is Cardassian and was an under-cover operative sent to infiltrate the Bajoran resistance ten years ago - and now she's home!

Back on the station, Sisko (Avery Brooks) and Odo (René Auberjonois) plan to rescue Kira, but a closer ally is also plotting her escape!

Stardate Unknown
Quark (Armin Shimerman) gets more than he bargained for when he buys the wreckage of a ship that crashed in the Gamma Quadrant and finds an alien infant hidden inside. When Bashir (Siddig El Fadil) examines the child, he notices an accelerated metabolic rate. Within hours the infant appears to be at least eight years old and exhibits superior language and cognitive reasoning skills. Later, as the boy evolves even more rapidly, he becomes violent and aggressive, and it is discovered that he is an infant Jem'Hadar. Sisko (Avery Brooks) plans to send the boy (Bumper Robinson) to Starfleet for further study, but Odo (René Auberjonois) objects, and risks everything to save him.

Stardate Unknown
While working in the station's ore processing unit, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) accidentally activates an automated security program. The program was created years ago by Gul Dukat (Marc Alaimo) to halt any uprising by the Bajoran slave workers, but its countermeasures are still deadly. When the program locks down the entire station and threatens to release highly toxic neurocine gas, Kira (Nana Visitor) destroys the life support system. This temporarily stops the spread of the gas, but it also activates the third phase of the security program which will cause the station to self-destruct in two hours - and not even Gul Dukat, who has come to the station to gloat, can stop it!

Exploring the Gamma Quadrant, the crew of the Defiant encounter a planet where none existed before. While visiting the inhabitants, Dax (Terry Farrell) becomes intrigued with a man named Deral (Brett Cullen), who explains that the planet, Meridian, shifts between this dimension and another. Unfortunately, the time periods spent in this dimension are getting shorter - this one will only last 12 days. As Dax's feelings for Deral grow stronger, the two plan to stay together. While the crew struggle to stabilize the planet before it vanishes for another 60 years, Dax makes a fateful decision to cross into the other dimension to be with her new found love!
