|While making a supply run to the front lines, on the
barren planet AR-558, Sisko encounters Starfleet troops that have been
decimated during their five-month occupation of the largest Dominion
communications array in the sector. If they can figure out how it works,
Starfleet will be able to tap into Dominion transmissions. In addition
to daily skirmishes with the enemy, the shell-shocked forces are
constantly threatened by "Houdinis" -- anti-personnel mines that "hide"
in subspace, then explode without warning. Determined to help commanding
officer Nadia Larkin and her troops, Sisko stuns his crew by announcing
that they're staying at the site indefinitely.
