After joining the Enabran Tain (Paul Dooley) and the Cardassian-Romulan Alliance, Garak's (Andrew Robinson) first order of business is to extract whatever information about the Founders Odo (René Auberjonois) may possess.

Meanwhile, on the station, the crew prepares for a retaliatory strike by the Jem'Hadar, the Dominion's soldiers. As the Alliance forces set a course for the Founder's homeworld, Sisko (Avery Brooks) readies the Defiant for a mission to rescue Odo. When the Alliance warships arrive at the Founder's homeworld they find the planet deserted and 150 Jem'Hadar battle cruisers waiting. Now the die has been cast and all that remains to be seen is who will survive the greatest conflagration in Federation history!

During a visit to Bajor, Sisko (Avery Brooks) finds the plans for an ancient Bajoran space vessel that operates like a sailboat, using solar pressure for propulsion. According to legend, the Bajorans used these ships to explore the star system over 800 years ago, even going as far as Cardassia. Hoping to recreate the journey, Sisko decides to build one for himself and invites his son, Jake (Cirroc Lofton), to join him. Ignoring Gul Dukat's (Marc Alaimo) warnings that the journey is too hazardous, the two prepare to depart the station. Despite the odds, they're determined to follow the trail that was blazed centuries earlier, but even they don't know what surprises lie ahead.

Quark's (Armin Shimerman) bar is audited by the Ferengi Commerce Authority and he is served with a Writ of Accountability for improperly supervising a family member. It seems his mother, Ishka (Andrea Martin), has been earning a profit -- an illegal activity for Ferengi women. As the family's eldest male, Quark will be held responsible, so he and Rom (Max Grodenchik) return home to convince Ishka to confess, as required by Ferengi law.

While Rom can't help but admire his mother's lobes for business, Quark will stop at nothing to wring a confession out of her, because if she doesn't surrender her profits, he'll be forced to pay.

When the first Minister of the Bajoran Provisional Government dies, Kai Winn (Louise Fletcher) is appointed to replace him. As the new leader of Bajor, Winn asks Kira (Nana Visitor) to return to her homeland to help reclaim some stolen farm equipment from Shakaar (Duncan Regehr), the former leader of her resistance cell during the occupation. Kira is reluctant to go up against a friend, but agrees to encourage Shakaar to meet with Winn and negotiate a peaceful settlement. But when two security officers arrive to arrest Shakaar, Kira realizes it's a trap and helps him escape. Fugitives once again, Shakaar, Kira and their comrades must take to the mountains and resume their fight for freedom.
