Station log: Dax wants to have Kira over to dinner at her and Worf’s place, and she makes several suggestions for who Kira can bring as a date—Captain Boday, a three-eyed doctor, Odo—but Kira insists she’ll be alone.
The transporter is activated, and Bareil beams aboard, holding a disruptor on Kira when she tries to check on him. Using her as a hostage, he asks for a ship, and Sisko orders Odo to clear a path to a runabout landing pad. Bareil takes Kira to the pad on foot. He confirms that he’s from the Mirror Universe, and then Kira points out that the power cell on his disruptor is cracked and it’s useless as a weapon. Bareil tries to get away, but Kira takes him down in half a second and hands him over to Odo, who was waiting on the landing pad with his deputies.
