The Passenger

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: As Odo and Starfleet newcomer Lt. Primmin irritate each other while trying to coordinate security for the transfer of a deuridium shipment due to arrive at DS9, a Runabout is sent to aid a crippled Kobliad prison ship, containing investigator Ty Kajada and two corpses, one of which was a notorious Kobliad criminal known as Rao Vantika, who, even after being pronounced dead by Bashir, is still considered a major threat by Kajada. Dax discovers, during post-mortem investigations, that Vantika was capable of transferring his consciousness into the mind of any other being without the recipient’s consent or even their knowledge. The vital shipment may be lost to Vantika, whoever his evil ambitions inhabit now – and he has henchmen waiting to assist him on the station.
