She looks like Keiko (Rosalind Chao). Sounds like Keiko. Yet there's something very different about the wife of Operations Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney). A mysterious entity has taken control of her consciousness. The entity insists that O'Brien must secretly alter the station's com links and sensors...or it will kill Keiko. The loyalties and skill of DS9's lead engineer are pushed to the breaking point as he confronts a dilemma that puts his wife's life in conflict with the safety of the crew. O'Brien knows that he alone must shoulder the life-and-death burden. Nothing can be left to chance. Yet a chance comment by a co-worker provides a spark of an idea that just might resolve his plight.

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. That really is the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 of Captain James T. Kirk and crew. But what are Captain Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks) and several of his crew doing on it?

The USS Defiant is returning from Cardassian space with the Bajoran Orb of Time. A Klingon named Arne Darvin, surgically altered to look human, has come aboard as a passenger. He uses the Orb to send the USS Defiant more than one hundred years into the past. Darvin plots to change history by and killing James T. Kirk, who exposed Darvin as a Klingon spy trying to poison a grain shipment stored on Deep Space Station K-7. Stopping the assassination isn't the only problem facing Sisko and his crew. In fact, they're facing 1,771,561 problems. They've beamed aboard the USS Enterprise when it's awash in those pesky, nettlesome, ever-multiplying critters, called Tribbles.

For life, liberty, and the happiness of pursuit, there's no better destination than Risa the "Pleasure Planet". Here, old loves can be renewed, new loves found, and flings flung. But libertine ways may be too much for rule-bound Worf (Michael Dorn), who's come to the planet with Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell) for what's supposed to be a romantic getaway. The Worf-Dax romance is tested when the Klingon grows uneasy over a past relationship between Risa's social director (Vanessa Williams) and Curzon Dax (one of Dax's previous host bodies). Unless Worf rediscovers the tolerance and trust that are among DS9's core values - Risa will be destroyed by his jealousy.

Stardate Unknown
One moment Sisko (Avery Brooks) and a handful of DS9 command are on a runabout preparing for a spaceport docking, the next moment they're on Terek Nor (the station's previous name) some seven years earlier. While they don't know how they got there, they do know they have to leave - fast: They've been accused of murder and the execution hour is drawing near.

The situation may be baffling to Sisko and the others, but not to Odo (René Auberjonois), who knows more than he's willing to admit. His secret past has come back to imperil those closest to him. Only by revealing and coming to terms with that past can Odo save his crewmates.
