Stardate not given: Kira is visited by her old friend and teacher, Vedek Fala, who gives her a red crystal. It is a homing transponder which is activated, causing her to be beamed by a Dominion transporter to Empok Nor, where a community of Bajoran pagh-wraith worshippers has settled, led by none other than Gul Dukat. Dukat tries to convince Kira to join his followers, but she wants nothing to do with them or the pagh wraiths. When the first child born to the community turns out to be half-Cardassian, Dukat claims it’s a miracle, then attempts to kill the mother. Rather than let his followers learn the truth, he decides to lead them to suicide.
Guest Cast: Marc Alaimo (Dukat), Norman Parker (Vedek Fala), Jason Leland Adams (Benyan), Maureen Flannigan (Mika), Miriam Flynn (Midwife), Mark Piatelli (Brin)
