Ambassadors from all over the Federation have assembled on Deep Space Nine for a conference that will determine the future of the planet Bajor. Keeping dozens of alien ambassadors happy is hard enough, but when hidden terrorists start blowing up the station, Commander Benjamin Sisko must track a hidden enemy who strikes at will. Then things get even worse: a new Cardassian commander arrives, demanding the return of Deep Space Nine to the Cardassian Empire. With Deep Space Nine now a dangerous minefield, Sisko must defuse a situation that threatens the very existence of the planet Bajor.

The Cardassian commander stormed into Sisko’s office.

“Gul Marak?” Sisko said, looking up at him.

“And you’re Sisko,” Marak stated with a sneer.

With effort, Sisko kept the anger out of his voice. “I believe you asked to meet with me?”

Marak tossed a data clip onto Sisko’s desk. “The government of the Cardassian Empire has ordered me to communicate their demands to the United Federation of Planets. To you as their representative.”

Sisko reached for the data clip, but Marak stopped him. “I can tell you what it says. My government demands the return of the station currently designated Deep Space Nine. I am authorized to assume command. Immediately.”

Sisko stood, his calm eyes meeting the Cardassian commander’s angry glare. “That demand,” Sisko said quietly, “could lead to interstellar war.”
