Episode propaganda

Sisko (Avery Brooks) encounters Michael Eddington (Kenneth Marshall), his former Starfleet security chief, who betrayed him and joined the Maquis. Obsessed with capturing the traitor, Sisko pursues him in the Defiant. But when Sisko gives the order to fire, the Defiant experiences a massive computer failure - caused by Eddington. He leaves Sisko angry and humiliated, and facing a long trip home.

The Defiant is towed back to DS9, and O'Brien (Colm Meaney) begins the massive job of bringing the ship back online. Adding insult to injury, Sisko learns that Captain Sanders (Eric Pierpoint) of the USS Malinche has been assigned to apprehend Eddington since Starfleet feels Sisko hasn't himself been able to do the job in the past eight months. But when he learns that Eddington attacked Cardassian colonies in the DMZ with a biogenic weapon, Sisko sees his chance. Despite the fact that the Defiant is not ready, he prepares to take his ship back into space.
