The station receives its first visitor from the Gamma Quadrant, an alien that only identifies himself as "Tosk." His ship was damaged, but he won't tell them why. He won't tell them much of anything in fact. Chief O'Brien discovers Tosk's ship was damaged by weapons fire, but Tosk refuses to tell them more. Chief O'Brien has been introducing Tosk to life around the station, and has grown to like him, and wants to give him the benefit of the doubt. Matters are complicated are when aliens calling themselves Hunters follow Tosk through the wormhole. They say Tosk is hunted for sport on their world, and they will not stop at violence to get him back. The Prime Directive seems to bind Sisko's hands, but what about Chief O'Brien's?
Thanks for your offer, friend, but I'm just not into that sort of thing.
