Stardate not given: A tablet is found under the ruins of B’Hala, and Sisko brings it to the station for translation. This brings him into conflict once again with Kai Winn, who demands that the tablet be returned. The sudden instability of the wormhole is a sign to the Kai that the Prophets are angry. Sisko agrees to return the tablet, but later he smashes it, releasing two energy discharges. They are a Prophet and a pagh wraith, who will battle it out in “the Reckoning” to determine Bajor’s future.
