Episode propaganda

When a ramshackle alien vessel is detected making its way through the wormhole, the ship's four passengers are transported to DS9. The humanoid aliens, led by a female named Haneek (Deborah May), are unable to communicate with the crew since the universal translator has trouble with their language, but they instinctively trust Kira (Nana Visitor). Because of this, she leads the group to the Infirmary, reassures them as Bashir (Siddig el Fadil) treats their wounds and shows them to their quarters. There, the translator begins making sense of Haneek's words and Kira discovers that Haneek's people, the Skrreeans, need help immediately. With Kira's encouragement, Haneek communicates that there are three million of them on the other side of the wormhole who must be brought through.

Intelligence report

Yay! Hard decisions where someone has to be made unhappy no matter what the outcome. Good, gritty ethics.

The Skreeans are victims of the Dominion (who?) and Bajor is their mythical homeworld. Can you see the conflict beginning to form? Refugees seek help from fellow refugees... what do you give when you have nothing? Yummm. High-fibre viewing.

And even better, you will find out how the universal translator works! (Although now you'll have to imagine this scenario every time Starfleet encounters an unknown language: can you cope?)
