Improbable Cause

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: An explosion in Garak’s clothing shop brings the attention of Odo to bear on the usually elusive Cardassian tailor. One lead indicates it could be the work of a Flaxian assassin, but the moment Odo tails the suspect’s spacecraft, it is destroyed by the Romulans who claim he was on their wanted list. Odo takes a solo trip to a rendezvous with a Cardassian who gives him some information – that the attempt on Garak’s life is part of a much larger plot, and that other former members of the Obsidian Order have not survived similar attacks on the same day. Odo and Garak now set out to find ex-Obsidian Order mastermind Enabran Tain on Garak’s hunch that Tain may also be an assassin’s target, but they are intercepted en route by a Romulan ship carrying Tain as a passenger. Tain invites Garak to rejoin him on a joint mission of the Obsidian Order and the Romulan Tal Shiar to attack the Founders of the Dominion on their own turf – and Garak accepts.
