Stardate 51145.3: On Terok Nor, Kira and Rom engineer a brawl between the Cardassians and the Jem’Hadar, a ploy which Odo had disapproved of. At this time comes the female Changeling, who has been trapped in the Alpha Quadrant by the minefield. Odo’s need for answers soon overcomes his distrust of her, and soon they are sharing the Link, to Kira’s dismay – which could spell disaster for the entire Alpha Quadrant. Meanwhile, Sisko is promoted to the position of adjutant to Admiral Ross, and must stay behind as the Defiant goes on a mission to destroy a vast Dominion sensor array.
