A young lieutenant named Ilario (Art Chudabala) is found dead in his quarters. An investigation reveals he was shot by a TR-116 rifle, a weapon developed but never mass-produced by Starfleet. Meanwhile, Ezri (Nicole deBoer) confronts one of Dax's previous incarnations in a dream: Joran (Leigh J. McCloskey), a self-professed murderer, urges Ezri to channel his disturbing memories and enable him to assist her in apprehending Ilario's killer. When Ezri awakens, she learns that a second murder has occurred.

Stardate Unknown
Odo (René Auberjonois) returns from a conference with an unexpected guest: a Changeling (Garman Hertzler) who tracked and boarded his Runabout. Odo recognizes him as one of "the hundred" shapeshifters who were, like himself, sent out as infants into the galaxy to learn about other species. Back at the station, Sisko (Avery Brooks) warily releases the visitor to Odo's custody. The Changeling, known as Laas, queries Odo about their unique species - with which Laas has made no contact since his infancy - and "the Link," a Changeling ritual that allows shapeshifters to meld with one another and thereby form a single, sentient collective entity.

Stardate Unknown
While relaxing in Vic Fontaine's (James Darren) Las Vegas holosuite lounge, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) and Bashir (Alexander Siddig) are surprised by the arrival of mobster Frankie Eyes (Robert Miano), who announces that he has bought Vic's hotel. After he fires Vic, the crew learns that Frankie was created by Vic's designer. Upset by Frankie's behavior, and by the knowledge that the lounge's atmosphere will now change, the crew decides it must rid him from the program. But he must be eliminated in a way what is period-specific to Fontaine's era: 1962. The task takes on greater urgency when Vic is beaten up.

Stardate Unknown
On the eve of Dr. Bashir's (Alexander Siddig) departure for a conference on the Romulan homeworld, he's visited by Sloan (William Sadler), the director of Section Thirty-one, a secret and unsanctioned extremist entity within Starfleet Intelligence. Sloan asks a reluctant Bashir to gather information on the Romulan leadership. Bashir reports the request to Sisko (Avery Brooks), who worries that although Starfleet Command has officially condemned Section Thirty-one, someone in its membership may actually be protecting the group. After consulting with Admiral Ross (Barry Jenner), Sisko advises Bashir to play along with Sloan in order to determine Sloan's motivations.
