StarDate: Unknown

Sisko is forced to confront his Maquis nemesis — Michael Eddington.

A secret message is intercepted and delivered to Sisko. The few Maquis
terrorists who have not been wiped out by the Dominion have initiated a
massive retaliatory strike against Cardassia, launching a series of missiles
due to arrive in eleven days. Now that Cardassia is under Dominion
protection, an all-out war is likely unless the undetectable missiles are
stopped. Seeing no alternative, Sisko goes to Michael Eddington, the former
Starfleet officer-turned-Maquis leader, now in prison. Eddington refuses to
tell Sisko how to stop the missiles, so Sisko takes the handcuffed Eddington
to compel him to help.

Approaching the area where the secret Maquis launch site is hidden, Sisko
forces Eddington to avoid two pursuing Jem'Hadar warships. Eddington tells
Sisko that he will direct him to the secret location — the only place where
the missiles can be deactivated. Afterward, however, he intends to kill

The Jem'Hadar warships return, forcing Eddington to try a different, more
dangerous plan — risking Sisko's life. But it works, although Sisko is
injured — and angered — in the process. They soon arrive at Athos IV, a
tiny, fog-bound planet where the launch site is hidden. Landing on the
planet, they head for the location — only to come face to face with two
Jem'Hadar soldiers

Sisko and Eddington kill the soldiers, but realize the place will soon be
crawling with them. They finally reach the command center and enter the
building. Sisko is surprised to find a dozen Maquis prisoners, including the
woman who sent the original message announcing the missile launch. Eddington
introduces the woman, Rebecca, as his wife.

Eddington reveals to Sisko that there are no missiles at all — Rebecca sent
the message to let Eddington know they had safely escaped the Dominion and
arrived at Athos IV. Eddington knew he would need Sisko's help to evacuate
them, and tricked him in order to reach the location. Unfortunately, the
Jem'Hadar found the site first. Sisko is angry but relieved. He and Eddington
fight off the Jem'Hadar while directing the prisoners toward the Runabout,
but Eddington is shot. Forcing Sisko and the others to escape without him,
Eddington is killed while valiantly battling the soldiers.
