Survival course.
Ever since the wormhole was discovered as a shortcut to the far off Gamma Quadrant, Jake Sisko has been dying to go through it. Not only is the one-of-a-kind stable wormhole an incredible sight, but the trip through is a once-in-a-lifetime ride! Now, with a lot of urging from her students, Keiko O'Brien is leading a field trip through the wormhole to Cetus Beta, a very safe, boring planet on the other side. What could possibly go wrong?
But then a Cardassian raider shoots down their runabout! Now Jake, Nog, T'Ara, Ashley and the other students are trapped on a planet where plants rule: they move, run, eat… and scream. With a Cardassian search party closing in, the students find the runabout is useless and their tricorders are missing. And then suddenly, Jake and his friends come face-to-face with a new enemy… one who threatens their only hope of escape!
