Stardate not given: When Quark sells him an injured baby Changeling he obtained through a trader, Odo becomes determined to find a way to communicate with it by teaching it to shapeshift. Unwanted help arrives in the form of Dr. Mora, the Bajoran scientist who studied Odo. Mora advocates the electrostatic techniques he used with Odo, while Odo is determined not to subject the Changeling to the pain he went through in his early days; their arguments resurrect the bitterness of their past history. Meanwhile, Kira prepares to give birth to the O’Briens’ baby at last.
