Stardate 47581.2: After returning from a briefing on security measures that will be needed aboard DS9 for a summit between leaders of warring factions of the Paradans, O’Brien feels that something strange is happening, though he can’t quite place a finger on what it could be. Gradually, he discovers that everything he says and does is being double-checked by Sisko and the crew. His own wife and daughter don’t seem comfortable around him, and even the most innocent questions he asks are evaded by everyone. As the time of the Paradan meeting draws near, O’Brien gets desperate for answers – but everyone else on the station seems intent on stopping him.
