Episode Notes
Log Entry:
* Captain's Log, Stardate 51825.4 - We've been shadowing the Dominion battleship for three hours. The data our probe has gathered so far has not only been interesting, but it may have given us a golden opportunity to strike a blow for the Federation.

The original draft for this episode featured Kira instead of Nog being on the shuttle with Jake.
