Synopsis
Commander Sisko returns from Starfleet Command with a new warship prototype, the U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205.

Notes
The DS9 cast starts using the new Starfleet insignia communicators designed for Star Trek: Generations and Star Trek: Voyager.
Sisko was on the design team for the U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205 while stationed at Utopia Planitia. The Defiant was designed to battle the Borg. However, design flaws during the shakedown cruise caused Starfleet to abandon the project.
The Defiant is outfitted with a Romulan D'Deridex-class warbird cloaking device. The Romulan government loaned it to Starfleet for use only in the Gamma Quadrant in exchange for intelligence information on the Dominion.
Lt. Cmdr. Eddington is assigned as the station's new Starfleet Chief of Security, much to Odo's displeasure.
Ornithar, a Karemma official, is brought aboard the Defiant and reveals to Quark and Sisko that a race called the Vorta has ordered all communications for the Dominion directed to a relay station on Callinon VII. The Ferengi negotiated the tulaberry wine contract with the Karemma in the 2nd season episode "Rules of Acquisition".
Martha Hackett previously played Seska on Star Trek: Voyager.
Dax has a new (bad) hairdo in this episode.

The Romulans are aboard the station to be debriefed on Dominion intelligence, per the agreement to use the cloaking device on the U.S.S. Defiant (see "The Search, Part I").
The Klingons are aboard the station waiting for their ship to be overhauled.
Technobabble explanation for O'Brien's time jumping: A quantum singularity orbiting the station is pulling at the radio-isotopes absorbed by the Chief in the accident. Mm-hmm.
The quantum singularity is actually a cloaked Romulan Warbird's engine core (see the TNG episode "Timescape").
The future O'Brien returns to the past when the present O'Brien dies of radiation poisoning.
Jack Shearer went on to play Admiral Hayes in both Star Trek: First Contact and the 4th season Voyager episode "Hope and Fear".
Chief O'Brien has Quark install a dart board in his bar. (Dr. Bashir proceeds to beat O'Brien 10 games in a row.) The dart board will get a lot of use throughout the rest of the series.

Synopsis
Sisko builds a new version of an ancient Bajoran space vessel in an effort to prove the truth behind an 800-year-old legend. According to the legend, the Bajorans used such ships, which use solar pressure for propulsion, to explore their star system, even going as far as Cardassia. After initially declining his father's invitation, Jake reconsiders and joins his father on the adventure. But the ship malfunctions, and Jake and Sisko must regain control before the solar sails tear themselves apart and leave the pair stranded in space. Meanwhile, Dr. Bashir encounters a classmate from Starfleet Medical.
 
Guest Cast
Bari Hochwald (Dr. Elizabeth Lense)

Notes
Sisko grows his goatee in this episode.
Ben and Jake make the trip to Cardassia, proving that the "lowly" Bajorans had space flight before the "superior" Cardassians. The tachyon eddies in the Denorios Belt pushed the ship's solar sails to warp speed, which carried the ship to the Cardassian System.
Jake wants to introduce Ben to a freighter captain. (Jake introduces him to Kasidy Yates in the next episode.)
Dr. Lense was the validictorian of Julian's graduating class at Starfleet Medical (Class of 2369). Julian graduated second in his class because he missed one question on his final exam.
Dr. Lense is Chief Medical Officer of the U.S.S. Lexington.

Then Quark discovers that Ishka has actually been conducting business transactions under dozens of aliases all over the Ferengi Alliance, making a tremendous profit. Even if Quark sells everything he owns, he will be unable to pay back what his mother has earned. Quark must decide whether to turn Ishka over to the FCA, or face total financial ruin.
