On the station, Kira's resistance movement is starting to drive a wedge between the Cardassians and the Jem Hadar, but there's a complication: the "female" changeling has arrived, and (s)he is getting itchy to get it on, I mean link up. . .with Odo. What's worse, Damar may have found a way to dismantle the wormhole minefield. Meanwhile on Starbase 357, the Defiant is ordered to take out a Dominion comm station, but they'll be going without Captain Sisko, who has been promoted out of the field. Will the crew be able to function without their resident Bald Black Leader Guy?
