Stardate not given: Odo and O’Brien are returning from a conference when their runabout is boarded by a Changeling – one who has never met another of his kind. Laas, like Odo, is one of the hundred infants who were sent out as explorers by the Founders. However, Laas is full of scorn and distrust for humanoids, and urges Odo to join him in a quest to find the other explorers and form a new Link. Odo is torn between his desire to live “as Changelings were meant to” and his love for Kira; and things become even more difficult when Laas is arrested for killing a Klingon.
