Plotline

The Dominion's seeming invincibility is causing gloomy times on DS9. When Jake Sisko becomes obsessed with getting a baseball trading card to cheer up his father, he must engage in a complex series of shenanigans involving Kai Winn, Dominion Vorta Weyoun, and a peculiar scientist determined to achieve immortality despite being hounded by the 'soulless minions of orthodoxy'. Jake, determined to win through at all costs, finds himself having an unexpected effect on station morale.
