Past Prologue

DS9 Season 2 Episode 2
Air Date: January 10th, 1992

A Bajoran Terrorist is running from a Cardassian warship and seeks asylum on DS9. He is able to convince Major Kira that he is no longer a terrorist and that he has a plan to free Bajor from the Cardassians and the Federation once and for all. He plans to destroy the wormhole, the main reason why Bajor is a recent hot spot. But this is when Major Kira stops supporting. She doesn't like having the Federation on DS9 but she feels that the wormhole is what will save Bajor. She betrays him just as he is going to succeed in destroying the wormhole and takes him into custody.

As the second episode of the series, it is supposed to create both conflict between Bajor and the Federation but also it starts to creates a bond between Kira and Sisko. It also introduces the Cardassian spy/tailor Garak.
