Jake Sisko and his best friend, Nog, make plans to sneak aboard a shuttle Doctor Bashir is piloting down to Bajor. After all, it's been a while since Jake has been on a planet. And they'll be back before Commander Sisko returns to Deep Space Nine from his diplomatic mission in a nearby star system.

  • Kai Opaka's departure from Bajor in "Battle Lines" is alluded to.


  • Stowaways features Bashir unwinding by pretending to be a secret agent, which the series would later introduce in "Our Man Bashir". Brad Strickland commented "For some reason or other, it struck me that a very serious doctor might want to unwind by pretending to be a secret agent - and that was the genesis of the storyline. I was delighted later on when show writers picked up on that aspect of Bashir's personality and incorporated it into a couple of scripts". (Voyages of Imagination)
