Stardate 46910.1: As Dax walk back to her quarters for the evening, two men and a woman take her hostage. Dr. Bashir relays her situation to Ops, but the kidnappers are a few steps ahead. They're able to disable all of DS9's security devices and escape in their ship. Commander Sisko brings the tractor beam back online and lock onto the kidnapper's ship before it escaped the beam's range. Bringing the three back onto the ship, Commander Sisko is handed a warrant by one of the abductors containing murder and treason charges against Lieutenant Dax.
