Episode propaganda

While working in DS9's Ore Processing unit, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) and Jake (Cirroc Lofton) accidentally activate an automated Cardassian security program, which traps the pair and Sisko (Avery Brooks) in the room. Throughout the station, monitors display an old message from Gul Dukat (Marc Alaimo) warning of a Bajoran worker revolt in the unit.

Jadzia (Terry Farrell) tries to beam the three out, but the computer requests an access code, which the Cardassians never revealed when they abandoned the station years ago. Jake crawls through a pipe and opens the hatch to the ore chute, allowing Sisko and O'Brien to get out just as lethal neurocine gas is released. Dukat's image reappears, announcing that the workers have escaped, after which the doors to Ops all slam shut.
