This premiere sees an incredible turning point in the ST universe. With the information of The Dominion and the power they hold, the Federation, Romulans, and Cardassians ALL join forces to create a new space ship, the Defiant, originally designed to deal with the Borg menace.

With the aid of a cloaking device loaned by the Romulan Empire, Sisko and the crew set off to the gamma quadrant in the new ship to find the mysterious founders of The Dominion.

All too soon they encounter the Jem'Hadar and Dax and O'Brien are captured.

Odo and Kira are in the Gamma quadrant when find themselves on a planet with other shapeshifters (who, BTW, do not like Kira as she is a ``solid''.)

In the meantime Sisko returns to the station to discover that things are changing at an extremely fast rate; the more he discovers the more concerned he becomes. The Federation is negotiating a peace treaty with the Dominion but keeps the Romulans out.

Matters get out of hand when a fight erupts between O'Brien and a Jem'Hadar soldier in the Space Station. The situation worsens when Jem'Hadar soldiers shoot a Romulan officer. In the end, Sisko decides to take matters into his own hands and goes to the point of trying to collapse the wormhole.

While Odo comes to terms with an amazing discovery about his past, Kira attempts to contact Sisko and the others. They also find a locked and bolted door (now on a planet of shapeshifters who needs a locked door?) Kira and Odo bust down the door to find some Dominion goons and more shapeshifters. Could these be the so called ``Founders''?
