Eager to aid Damar's (Casey Biggs) rebel movement on his homeworld against the Dominion, Sisko (Avery Brooks) orders Kira (Nana Visitor) to put her antipathy for the Cardassian aside and train his staff in resistance tactics. Bashir (Alexander Siddig) asks Odo (René Auberjonois) to assist in his medical project by donating the Changeling-equivalent of a skin sample. On Bajor, Kai Winn (Louise Fletcher) studies the forbidden text of the Kosst Amojan to learn how to release the evil Pah-wraiths. Hoping to ease Cardassian sentiment against the Bajoran Kira, Sisko givers her a Starfleet commission and uniform.

Stardate Unknown
While Kira (Nana Visitor) reviews tactical plans with the Cardassian Resistance leaders, Odo (René Auberjonois) returns from a mission, weakened by the disease that's ravaging his race. At the station, Bashir (Alexander Siddig) works through the night, trying to find a cure for Odo, while Sisko (Avery Brooks) reproves Chancellor Gowron (Robert O'Reilly) for reckless attacks which left General Martok (J.G. Hertzler) injured. Back at the rebel headquarters, Kira, eager to discover why the Federation's Klingon ships aren't damaged by Breen-Dominion technology, proposes stealing the enemy's weaponry so that the Federation can engineer a countermeasure.

Stardate Unknown
When Kira (Nana Visitor) brings a terminally ill Odo (René Auberjonois) back to the station for medical treatment, he orders her to leave him and return to help the Cardassian Resistance. Later, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) and Bashir (Alexander Siddig) inform Sisko (Avery Brooks) of their plan to lure a Section Thirty-one operative, who may hold the cure to Odo's disease, to the station. The scheme works when Sloan, (William Sadler) the director of the unsanctioned Starfleet extremist organization that infected Odo - as part of a genocidal plot against his people - arrives. But when Bashir places a Romulan mind probe on the agent, who refuses to give information regarding a cure, Sloan attempts suicide in the science lab by activating a neuro-depolarizing device in his brain.

While Sisko (Avery Brooks) takes command of a new ship named in honor of the Defiant, Kira (Nana Visitor), Garak (Andrew J. Robinson) and Damar (Casey Biggs) barely escape a Dominion ambush on Cardassia and are forced into hiding. Quark (Armin Shimerman) receives a static-filled message from Grand Nagus Zek (Wallace Shawn), the Ferengi leader, that he's been named Zek's successor. Now cured of the deadly Changeling virus, Odo (René Auberjonois) is outraged to learn that he was infected by Section Thirty-one - an unsanctioned extremist organization within the Federation - but promises Sisko he won't take matters into his own hands.
