After more than 200 years, a legendary Bajoran appears and challenges Sisko's (Avery Brooks) claim to be the Emissary. Sisko agrees to step down and Akorem Laan (Richard Libertini) takes his place and plans to return Bajor to the old ways - including strict adherence to a caste system which restricts people to specific D'jarras or occupations.

Fearing that caste-based discrimination will cause Bajor to be excluded from the Federation, Sisko questions the wisdom of the new Emissary's decision. Soon the two are at odds and a deadly event forces Sisko to challenge Akorem's claim. Ultimately, the Prophets will have to decide who is the true Emissary.

At an extradition hearing, the Klingon Empire accuses Worf (Michael Dorn) of firing upon a Klingon civilian transport, killing 441. The Klingon advocate, Ch'Pok (Ron Canada) suggests Worf's lust for combat affected his judgment even though the Defiant was under attack by two Klingon warships at the time. Sisko (Avery Brooks) serves as Worf's defense counsel and fights to prove his innocence, as well as search for the truth. As the case progresses, witnesses reveal that Worf is indeed aggressive and at times violent. More questions arise and though Sisko is suspicious of his adversary and the proceedings, Worf's fate-appears to be sealed.

Operations Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) is locked in a cell that has no iron bars, no walls and no way out. He's a prisoner of his mind, the captive of an alien program that makes him remember two decades of harsh incarceration - even though he was subjected to the program for only two hours.

As the officer tries to get on with his life, he finds that a return to normalcy is anything but normal. Memories of his supposed past, including the killing of a kind cellmate, push him to the edge of guilt and rage. His mind is at the breaking point and his life is on the line. If O'Brien is to have a future, he must somehow triumph over the virtual past.

There's a good side and a bad side to a parallel universe. On the good, there's a Deep Space Nine. On the bad, there's Terok Nor, the station's beleaguered mirror-universe counterpart. There, you'll find that the evil opposite of Major Kira (Nana Visitor) is a gleeful assassin. And that one of her malevolent alternate-world allies is Worf (Michael Dorn), the Regent of a war fleet preparing to blast Terok Nor into nothingness.

Into this topsy-turvy realm comes Commander. Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks). He thinks he's come to Terok Nor on his own agenda, but he'll soon discover he's been lured there by the embattled station's crew members.
