Stardate not given: As a Dominion fleet comes through the wormhole, Dukat joins them, announcing that after months of secret negotiation, Cardassia is now a member of the Dominion. Dukat is now head of the Cardassian government. The Klingons are expelled from Cardassian space, and Dukat vows to retake the station; a new era dawns when Sisko meets with Gowron. Meanwhile, Garak and Bashir work on an escape plan, while Worf is put to work helping the Jem’Hadar train by fighting them. And the search for the saboteur aboard DS9 goes on.
