The runabout Ganges returns to Deep Space Nine in serious trouble. The ship has no power, the hatch can't be opened and oxygen is running out. Also there seems to be an extra person on board. O'Brien is able to open the hatch and recognizes the guest as Vash, a corrupt archaeologist, from his time on Enterprise. She tells them she has been traveling in the Gamma Quadrant for two years and has collected artifacts there. O'Brien meanwhile can't find anything wrong with the ship other than the power was being drained. Then the same malfunction appears on DS9. Dangerous blackouts are hitting the station. Meanwhile Vash gets a unexpected visit in her quarters. It's Q, the omnipotent being, and he seems upset Vash left him. He wants her back.
