Rom and Quark are called back to the homeworld to deal with an unusual problem. Their mother has committed the grievous crime of earning profit.
Meanwhile, the whole station is abuzz about Sisko meeting freighter captain Kassidy Yates.
- Call Back: A couple TOS references when Kassidy mentions her brother plays baseball for the Pike City Pioneers on Cestus III.
- Grew a Spine: Rom is unusually assertive for once. Calling out his late father for being an incompetent fool, and openly defying Quark.
- Like Father, Like Son: Turns out Rom is this. Quark actually gets his business acumen from his mother.
- Open Secret: Word spreads fast on a space station. Hence everyone knowing about Kassidy before Sisko even meets her.
- You Look Familiar: Jeffrey Combs makes his second Star Trek appearance, following his role as the supremely creepy Trion in "Meridian".
