Episode propaganda

A Boslic captain (Leslie Bevis) talks Quark (Armin Shimerman) into purchasing the wreckage of a ship that crashed in the Gamma Quadrant. Unfortunately, he ends up with much more than he bargained for when he finds a newborn alien infant hidden inside. Quark brings the baby to the Infirmary, where the child's presence reminds Sisko (Avery Brooks) of his teenaged son Jake's own infancy - and Sisko's fatherly concern now that Jake (Cirroc Lofton) is dating Marta (Jill Sayre), a 20-year-old dabo girl. Bashir (Siddig el Fadil) notices that the baby has a phenomenal metabolic rate, and the child develops so rapidly that he changes from an infant to what looks like an 8-year-old child in a few hours.

While the child is no more than two-weeks-old genetically, he is already able to speak. Bashir soon determines that his advanced skills are artificially implanted as the result of genetic engineering. The crew quickly sees what kind of alien he is when the child matures again - into a violent, teenaged Jem'Hadar (Bumper Robinson).
