Synopsis:

It is three months after the beginning of the war, and things look bleak for the Federation. After a major defeat for Starfleet, Sisko and his crew are taken off the Defiant and given a new assignment. Bajorans return to Terok Nor under the Dominion treaty. Kira and Odo want the Bajoran security force restored as well, armed and with full authority as before. However, there will be a price. Meanwhile, Sisko's new mission is to take the Jem'Hadar ship he captured last year and destroy what is believed to be the main Ketracel-white storage facility in the Alpha Quadrant, deep in Cardassian space. But will they even manage to make it there?

Synopsis:

In their commandeered Jem'Hadar warship, crippled and under attack, Sisko and crew take refuge in a nebula where they crash on a planet which is deserted - except for a troop of Jem'Hadar who have also crashed there. Their Vorta supervisor, Keevan, has been severely injured, and their supply of Ketracel-white has dwindled to one vial. When Garak and Nog are captured, Keevan arranges a trade for Sisko and Bashir, who is able to treat the Vorta. In exchange, Keevan makes a proposal which will enable Sisko and crew to survive--but not without a moral dilemma. Meanwhile, on Terok Nor, Kira finds it increasingly difficult to maintain neutrality.

After rescuing Sisko's crew in the Rotarran, Martok and Worf take on a group of five replacements from the Klingon Defense Forces - one of which, to Worf's surprise, is his son, Alexander Rozhenko, whom he had sent to live with his foster grandparents on Earth. Alexander refuses to discuss his reasons for joining the Empire's forces, especially with his father, and unfortunately he is the butt of the other recruits' jokes, leaving Worf in an awkward position. Meanwhile, on the station, Ziyal has returned, and Kira tries to get along with Dukat for her sake.

Starfleet has finally decided to go on the offensive in the war against the Dominion, and Sisko is chosen to lead the task force that will be sent to attack the Chin'taka system, a "weak spot" in Cardassian space. This he does, despite a warning vision from the Prophets. Meanwhile, Dukat has returned to Cardassia with what he claims is the key to victory.

Notes:

This was Terry Farrell's final episode as a member of Deep Space Nine's regular cast. As with Next Generation, Deep Space Nine's cast was originally contracted for a six-year run with the option to renegotiate their contracts between the sixth and seventh seasons. Farrell opted not to return when she felt that the offered salary was not commensurate with her years of experience on the show, and tried to persuade the writers to reassign Dax to a new mission rather than killing the character off.
