After driving the Dominion from the station and Bajor, Worf and Jadzia marry, Bashir meets with Augments to see about helping them, and O'Brien goes undercover to infiltrate the Orion Syndicate. As matter take a turn for the worst Sisko enlists the help of Garak to bring the Romulans into the war against the Dominion, later Sisko returns to Earth after losing his connection to the Prophets. Bashir encounters Sloan of Section 31 for the first time.
