The joint Romulan and Cardassian fleet approaches the station. Sisko is ready for a fight, but the fleet immediately goes through the wormhole - on their way to destroy the Founders' home planet. Sisko wants to pursue them and defies Starfleet orders to stay back and guard Bajor. Meanwhile on the fleet, Enabram Tain gives Garak his first assignment: interrogate Odo to find out about possible planetary defenses of the Founders. Garak gets a device which prevents changelings from altering their form.
