On his way to stand trial for his crimes, the Federation Starship carrying Gul Dukat is attacked. Captain Sisko is travelling on board as well, and the pair end up stranded alone, seeking shelter in a cave. Waiting for rescue, whether by Dominion of Starfleet forces neither of them knows, Dukat becomes increasingly unstable.
Even in this state he possesses a certain dignity, a graceful countenance.

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.
