Stardate not given: Kira decides on a bold plan to steal one of the Breen energy-dissipating weapons so that Starfleet can study it and come up with a countermeasure. With a team consisting of herself, Garak, Damar, Rusot and Odo, she gets aboard a Jem’Hadar ship. But there are complications – they must wait for the Breen weapon to be installed, Rusot’s hatred for Kira is growing, and Odo has been trying to conceal the true extent of his illness.
Meanwhile, Gowron has been ordering Martok on several suicidal attacks, as part of a design to undermine Martok politically, yet Martok refuses Worf’s advice to challenge Gowron. And Bashir and O’Brien formulate a plan to lure a Section 31 operative to DS9.
