(No, it's never explained why an engineer and family man from a space station that's critical to the defense of the Federation is sent on a dangerous spy mission.) He presents himself as a down-on-his-luck mechanic, which gets him a job fixing technology, especially weapons, for Bilby, the local crime boss. He finds himself becoming friends with Bilby and doubting his mission, but also discovers that the Orion Syndicate is working for the Dominion. He gets pulled into a plot involving Klingon weapons, and tries to find a way to foil the plot and get himself out of harm's way, without getting Bilby killed by his bosses.
