Stardate not given: Odo is escorting Quark to a hearing of the Federation Grand Jury, when Quark finds a bomb on the runabout. Odo is able to channel most of the explosion into the transporter buffer, but it still causes the runabout to crash-land on a mountainous, cold planet. With the subspace booster damaged, they have to get the transmitter up high enough to send a signal off planet…if they don’t kill each other first. Also, Nog returns to DS9 as a second-year cadet for field study, and moves in with Jake, only to find that it’s not as easy to live together as they had thought.
Guest Cast: Max Grodenchik (Rom), Aron Eisenberg (Nog)
