Episode propaganda

A visitor to DS9 gives Quark (Armin Shimerman) the earring of a legendary Bajoran prisoner of war, and Quark hands it over to Kira (Nana Visitor). Kira recognises it as the one belonging to Li Nalas (Richard Beymer), the greatest freedom fighter in Bajoran history and legend. Kira convinces Sisko (Avery Brooks) to loan her a runabout - and Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) as pilot - to travel to Cardassia IV. Recovering Li Nalas and a handful of other Bajorans from a forced labour camp, Kira and O'Brien rush back to DS9.

Though the Bajoran provisional government officially condemns Kira's cavalier rescue operation, the Bajorans on the station and everywhere rejoice in Li's return. Sisko hopes Li can reunite the gradually dissolving Bajoran government, which is splitting into many factions, including the extremist reactionary Circle, isolationists who mean to evict all non-Bajorans from Bajor and DS9. The Circle is, in fact, beginning to make its presence known aboard the station, as is Li Nalas, when he winds up replacing Kira as the Bajoran liaison officer.
