Episode propaganda

A violent plasma storm leads to the evacuation of DS9, leaving a skeleton crew behind to maintain the station. Odo (René Auberjonois) is suspicious when he learns that Quark (Armin Shimerman) is hiding in an airlock, but can pin nothing on the Ferengi.

The crew picks up a distress signal from a cargo ship that has been damaged and needs assistance. O'Brien (Colm Meaney) and Odo meet the ship at a Docking Bay, where the victims, a Humanoid female named Mareel (Megan Gallagher), Klingon mercenaries T'kar (Tim Russ) and Yeto (Steve Rankin) and a nervous male Trill named Verad (John Glover), pull weapons on the pair and force Odo to assume liquid form and get into a small box.

The group then forces Bashir (Siddig el Fadil) to put Odo in stasis, and finally winds up in Ops, taking everyone hostage. O'Brien deduces that Quark is connected to their plight, unaware that, at that very moment, Yeto is revealing to the Ferengi that, what Quark thought was commerce, was really a trick to get the group aboard. T'kar reveals the reason for the takeover - the timid Verad is actually the leader and has come to steal Jadzia's symbiont.
