Kira is shocked and saddened when Latha Mabrin, a fellow member of
the Shakaar Resistance Cell-turned Vedek, is murdered.

Kira's shock turns to fear, however, when she receives a
recorded message moments after learning of the murder. Her message
consists of a picture of Latha appearing on the computer screen,
and a scrambled voice saying simply, "That's one." Odo is unable to
trace the message, which Kira interprets as a threat to all the
former members of the Shakaar Resistance Cell. Kira makes
arrangements to transport her onto a Runabout returning to the
station. But something goes wrong during the transport, and Fala is

An investigation reveals the Fala was killed by a tiny detonator
programmed to scramble the Transporter beam. A message from the
scrambled voice saying "That's two" is soon delivered on a PADD.
Later, while working on the case in Odo's office, Kira receives a"That's three" message displaying the face of Mobara, another
member of the Shakaar. Immediately, they begin efforts to contact
him, hoping to stop his murder. Kira returns to her room in
O'Brien's quarters to rest, but is jolted by a loud crash outside
her door.

Phaser drawn, Kira creeps into the living room, ready to face the
assassin. Instead, she comes face to face with Furel and Lupaza,
two more members of the Shakaar who have come to help her. Thinking
her bodyguard was the killer, they attacked him — causing the
noise Kira heard. Furel and Lupaza volunteer to hunt down the
assassin for Kira. She prefers to handle her problem within the
boundaries of the law, but allows Furel and Lupaza to stay with her
in the O'Brien quarters to "protect" her and the O'Briens' unborn
child. Later, the grim, but not unexpected, news of Mobara's death arrives. During a staff meeting, Odo surmises that whoever is doing
the killing most likely has a vendetta against Kira — and that she
is also a likely target. Nog, Dax and Kira work with the scrambled
voice, hoping it will provide a clue, but the voice used in the
messages turns out to belong to Kira. Their work is interrupted by
news that there has been an explosion in the O'Brien quarters.
O'Brien was not home at the time, but Furel and Lupaza are dead.

Odo tells Kira that he has compiled a list of possible suspects
with the skills, opportunity and motive for these attacks. He
refuses to give Kira the list, afraid the very pregnant woman will
head off in search of the killer on her own. Kira pretends to have
no intention to leave the station, but the moment Odo leaves, she
transports into his office, steals the file and shuts down Odo's
computer so she can't be followed. Then she takes off in a Runabout. After eliminating several suspects, she arrives at the
home of Silaran Prin. Almost instantly, she is placed in a
restraining field and told she will die.

Silaran, who was severely disfigured in a Resistance bombing, is
punishing those involved — especially Kira, who was the
ringleader. He points out that he has not killed indiscriminately
like Kira. The bombing in which he was injured killed civilians,
women and children. He tells Kira that he will spare her baby, but
kill her, and prepares to operate. Kira warns him that this will
kill the baby, which is not Bajoran, but human, meaning it has
special needs. Silaran is unmoved. Thinking quickly, Kira begs for
a sedative, realizing that the herbs she has taken for her
pregnancy have rendered most sedatives ineffective. She pretends to
fall asleep, then lunges at Silaran, attacking and killing him.Sisko, Bashir and Odo arrive to rescue her, but Silaran is already
dead, and Kira, shaken and sobered by her experience, only wants to
go home.
