Episode propaganda

Odo (René Auberjonois) is dispatched to escort Quark (Armin Shimerman) to a Federation grand jury hearing, an 8-day journey away. Halfway to their destination, Quark hears a strange buzzing noise. When he and Odo investigate, they find a bomb aboard the runabout. They contain the explosion in a transporter beam, but the runabout is still severely damaged. Forced to crash-land on a frozen, desolate planet, Odo and Quark learn that they lost their communications system, their replicator and most of their rations in the explosion. They are left with a horrifying choice - starve to death or freeze to death...
