While the crew prepare for an invasion by the Dominion, an armada of Klingon warships arrive at Deep Space Nine in a hostile mood. Lt. Commander Worf (Michael Dorn) is reassigned to the station to help Sisko (Avery Brooks) deal with the Klingons and soon discovers that a great battle looms on the horizon.
When the Klingons break all diplomatic ties and attempt to invade Cardassia, Sisko follows in the Defiant and rescues the Cardassian Council members moments before their ship is destroyed. Back on the station, the crew braces for the onslaught as the full force of the Klingon Empire is unleashed and the battle for control of the Alpha Quadrant begins!
