During a visit to the station, Kor (John Colicos), a revered Klingon warrior, invites Worf (Michael Dorn) and Dax (Terry Farrell) to join him on a quest to find the Sword of Kahless -- a legendary artifact that could unite the Klingon empire. Together, they travel to the Gamma Quadrant and find the sword in a hidden chamber within the caverns of a deserted planet. But as they prepare to depart, they are met by Toral (Rick Pasqualone), the last member of the House of Duras and a fierce enemy of Worf's. As Kor and Worf fight to protect the sword and escape from the caverns, their ambition to unite the empire turns them against each other.

While Bashir (Alexander Siddig) is enjoying a holosuite program that casts him as a super-suave 1960s secret agent, Sisko (Avery Brooks) and some other officers on board a Runabout are transported off just moments before it explodes. A computer malfunction sends the officers' physical patterns into Bashir's holoprogram where they all assume roles in a diabolical plot to destroy the Earth. While the crew tries to figure out how to reintegrate the officers' physical and neural patterns and return them to the station, "secret agent" Julian Bashir is all that stands between his trapped comrades and certain death.

Conclusion. After a planetwide power outage, martial law is declared on Earth and armed officers begin patrolling the streets. When Sisko (Avery Brooks) learns that it was not Changelings who sabotaged Earth's power-relay system, but the Red Squad -- an elite group of Starfleet Academy cadets under orders from Admiral Leyton (Robert Foxworth) -- he fears his old C.O. may be planning to overthrow the Federation government. When confronted, Leyton reveals his plan to oust the president and take over the planet in order to fortify it against the Dominion. As the Defiant races toward Earth, Sisko discovers Leyton will do anything to carry out his plans, even order the destruction of a starship! Part 2 of 2 with "Homefront."
