With war looming, Jake and Nog attempt to gain a baseball card to bolster Captain Sisko's spirits. Meanwhile, the Dominion offers Bajor a non-aggression pact.


Captain Sisko throws a dinner party for his senior staff. Tensions with the Dominion cloud the gathering, and Jake resolves to do something to cheer his father up. Jake soon spies the perfect thing to do that - a baseball card that is part of an auction Quark is holding.
