Stardate not given: In their commandeered Jem’Hadar warship, crippled and under attack, Sisko and crew take refuge in a nebula where they crash on a planet which is deserted – except for a troop of Jem’Hadar who have also crashed there. Their Vorta supervisor, Keevan, has been severely injured, and their supply of Ketracel-white has dwindled to one vial. When Garak and Nog are captured, Keevan arranges a trade for Sisko and Bashir, who is able to treat the Vorta. In exchange, Keevan makes a proposal which will enable Sisko and crew to survive–but not without a moral dilemma. Meanwhile, on Terok Nor, Kira finds it increasingly difficult to maintain neutrality.
Guest Cast: Andrew J. Robinson (Garak), Phil Morris (Remata’Klan), Christopher Shea (Keevan), Aron Eisenberg (Nog), Paul S. Eckstein (Limara’Son), Lilyan Chauvin (Vedek Yassim), Sarah MacDonnell (Neeley), Joseph Fuqua (Gordon)
