O'Brien and Bashir help to rid two races of their biological weapons, until one of the sides breaks the truce.


Julian Bashir and Miles O'Brien are assigned to help dismantle the deadly biomechanical weapons of the Kellerun and T'Lani, two alien species feuding for centuries. Little did they know to what great lengths these two alien species would go to ensure that no one could ever design this technology again.

Background Information

  • Oddly, the stardate on which this episode's events take place was in the script but omitted in the voiceover. Bashir simply says "supplemental" for the stardate, perhaps because someone was unsure whether 47529.4 would be keeping in line with prior stardates and they knew from prior experience that Trekkies/Trekkers do notice such things.
