Summary Edit

From the book jacket
Ever since the Wormhole was discovered as a shortcut to the far off Gamma Quadrant. Jake Sisko has been dying to go through it. Not only is the one-of-a-kind stable Wormhole an incredible sight, but the trip through is a once-in-a-lifetime ride. Now, with a lot of urging from her students, Keiko O'Brien is leading a field trip through the Wormhole to Cetus Beta, a very safe, boring planet on the other side.
But then a Cardassian raider shoots down their Runabout. Now Jake, Nog, T'Ara, Ashley and the other students are trapped on a planet where plants rule: they move, run, eat, and scream. With a Cardassian search party closing in, the students find the Runabout is useless and their tricorders are missing. And then suddenly, Jake and his friends come face-to-face with a new enemy, one who threatens their only hope of escape.
