Much to his dismay chief O'Brien is ordered by Sisko to escort Bashir to a Bajoran village. He is to help out with a medical emergency that endangers the entire community. After arriving there's only one person sick, the Sirah. He seems very pleased with the arrival of O'Brien and designates him as 'the one'. It soon becomes clear the Sirah is the only person capable of defeating the Dal'Rok, a terrible monster that attacks every year after the harvest and doesn't show up on tricorder. Meanwhile on DS9, Sisko tries to negotiate between the Paqu and the Navot, two rivaling Bajoran factions. Ninety years ago they agreed to a river being the border between their lands, but after the Cardassians diverted the river, Paqu territory became bigger. The leader of the Paqu, Tetrarch Varis Sul, is a young girl and Nog and Jake try to impress her.

Major, what a pleasant surprise. I always look forward to one of your infrequent visits.
Spare me the small talk and give me a star drifter.
So, er... how are the negotiations coming along?
...Better make it a double.
