Three months after a possessed Gul Dukat killed Jadzia Dax and sealed the wormhole, life on Deep Space Nine has changed. Kira (Nana Visitor), the acting commander, is upset when Admiral Ross (Barry Jenner) informs her that the Romulans will set up a station office, while Sisko (Avery Brooks) has retreated to Earth to contemplate a way of contacting the Bajoran Prophets -- the aliens who reside within the wormhole. When the vision of a woman's face, buried in the sand, appears to Sisko, he sketches her, and Jake (Cirroc Lofton) recognizes her from one of his grandfather's photos.

Sisko (Avery Brooks) meets Ezri (Nicole deBoer), the new host of the Dax symbiont, before departing Earth for the planet Tyree with his father, Joseph (Brock Peters), and son Jake (Cirroc Lofton). Ezri wishes to accompany them on their search for Bajor's mythical Orb of the Emissary, which Sisko has been led to believe exists. Back at the station, Kira (Nana Visitor) prepares a blockade to stop the Romulans, who have placed weapons on a Bajoran moon. On a Klingon ship, Worf (Michael Dorn), O'Brien (Colm Meaney), Bashir (Alexander Siddig), and Quark (Armin Shimerman) embark on a mission of their own: to destroy a Dominion shipyard, thus securing a place for the spirit of Worf's dead wife Jadzia in the sacred Klingon afterlife of Sto-vo-kor.

Stardate Unknown
In addition to coping with the memories of her "past lives," Ezri Dax (Nicole deBoer) must deal with the range of reactions her presence generates. Kira (Nana Visitor) awkwardly tries to make conversation; Sisko (Avery Brooks) is happy to have his old friend back; Quark (Armin Shimerman) flirts with her; and Worf (Michael Dorn), pained by the memory of his dead wife Jadzia, which Ezri's presence provokes, makes it clear he wants nothing to do with her. Elsewhere, Garak (Andrew J. Robinson) inexplicably collapses and is rushed to Bashir's (Alexander Siddig) care.

Stardate Unknown
Vulcan Captain Solok (Gregory Wagrowski) brings his starship to Deep Space Nine for repairs made necessary from combat skirmishes. Convinced his all-Vulcan crew is the finest in the fleet, he challenges former classmate and longtime rival Sisko (Avery Brooks) to a baseball game on the Holosuite. With only two weeks to whip his team into shape, Sisko vows he's going to beat Solok - even though Jake (Cirroc Lofton) is the only other person residing on the station who has ever played baseball.
