A group of genetically engineered people have come to the station. Unlike Bashir, their abilities came at the cost of their mental health. Unable to live in society, Bashir hopes to find a role for them to play. Meanwhile, the station hosts an unexpected peace overture from Gul Damar, the new head of Dominion-ruled Cardassia.
