Summary: On a remote planet in the Badlands called Tau Primia, and in the middle of nowhere, Megan Felpes and her colleague Jack Smith observe a prison manned by rebel Cardassians. But what starts as a simple mission goes horribly wrong, when she and Jack are captured and imprisoned, and for the next two years Megan's life becomes a living hell...
Fast forward two years and captain Ezri Dax is the new commander of Deep Space Nine, and on a personal level there are many challenges to overcome, as she comes to terms with her long term break-up with Bashir, and the friends she lost contact with during the many years away from the station. However shortly after arriving, Ezri faces a new problem when a fleet of Cardassian warships arrive at DS9.
Upon being contacted by one of the ships, Ezri encounters Garak, the president of the Cardassian government and general commander-in-chief of the Cardassian Union. During a private meeting, Garak gives to Ezri a very unusual offer...
This soon morphs into Ezri's first mission as captain to carry out a daring rescue operation to free the prisoners on Tau Primia...
