Newsstand editions have a barcode on the cover and early issues have a cover price of $1.95. 01 Aug 93 Stowaway, 1 On their way back to class from Dax's lab, Jake and Nog detour through the cargo holds and accidentally release a green mold. They hurry back to class without telling anyone what has happened. Renowned xenoarcheologist, Dr. Wembley, aboard a visiting Federation starship, asks DS9 to store some artifacts from the Gamma quadrant for transport to Earth. O'Brien takes the artifacts to the cargo bay and is nearly overcome by the rapidly reproducing mold, which also produces a toxic gas. While Odo and his staff try to evacuate contaminated areas, Bashir identifies the mold as a Cardassian-engineered substance. Bashir questions Mr. Garak about the mold but gets no answers. In order to cover all bases, Sisko asks permission to examine the artifacts and determine if their presence may have been responsible for activating the mold. Permission is refused and Capt. Johnson takes the artifacts back to his ship. A fungicide developed by Dax and Bashir proves ineffective, but the Cardassians arrive, in three cruisers, with an offer to destroy the mold.

Capt. Johnson refuses to let anyone speak to Dr. Wembley about the Gamma quadrant artifacts. Sisko sends Dax and Odo to the Armstrong to find out what Johnson is hiding. They discover that Wembley died of a stroke and Johnson has covered up his death so that Wembley would get credit for the Gamma quadrant discoveries. They also confirm that the artifacts were not responsible for activating the mold. Since mold activity has centered around the school, the children of Keiko's class are questioned. Jake confesses to finding the mold after he and Nog spilled chemicals in Dax's lab. The chemicals activated the mold. Dax and Bashir learn how to kill the mold and the station is cleaned up. Sisko invites the Cardassians to return if they ever have problems with the mold. This issue is polybagged with a Skybox DS9 promo trading card. (Mike W. Barr; Gordon Purcell, Terry Pallot; Purcell, Pallot) 03 Oct 93 Old Wounds Gul Trelar, born on Bajor, once known as "The Butcher of Bajor", and now an old man, arrives at DS9 to acknowledge his approaching death. Travelling with Trelar are his children and second wife, a Bajoran who was once his prisoner. At his own request, Trelar stays in one of Quark's holosuites, so that his mother and childhood home can be simulated. At dinner with DS9 officers, Trelar collapses, Bashir administers medication, and he is left alone in the holosuite to rest. The following morning, Trelar is found stabbed to death, and there is no record of anyone entering the holosuite. Nearly everyone is a suspect. Odo uses his shapeshifting skills to conduct an investigation and learns that Trelar's son programmed the simulation of his father's mother to kill. (Mike W. Barr; Rob Davis, Terry Pallot; Jerome Moore, Richard Ory) 04 Nov 93 Emancipation, 1 While collecting biological samples in the Gamma quadrant, Dax and Bashir encounter an alien vessel carrying refugees in need of medical assistance. Once they arrive at DS9, it becomes apparent that the refugees are slaves, fleeing their owners. Rogon, a representative of the Chiaran people, arrives at DS9 to reclaim the runaway slaves. The DS9 crew stalls while Sisko tries to come up with a valid reason to offer asylum to the slaves. Rogon is very convincing as he argues with representatives of the slaves. Some already regret fleeing through the wormhole. Dax finds evidence that the Chiarans may have originated from the Federation side of the wormhole, giving Sisko something to work with. One of the slaves sets off a bomb, killing many of his comrades. So many of the slaves are having second thoughts that their leader, Mardak, decides to make the decision for them. Mardak hijacks a runabout and heads for the wormhole, intending to destroy it. (Mike W. Barr; Gordon Purcell, Terry Pallot;) 05 Dec 93 Emancipation, 2 Dax and O'Brien take a runabout in pursuit of Mardak. Using phasers set at one-fiftieth power, O'Brien gives the hijacked runabout a nudge out of the wormhole before it explodes, while Dax transports Mardak and his accomplice to safety. Rogon's hot-headed first officer, Caldor, has a run-in with Kira. Rogon apologizes for his officer's behavior because he can see that the violence of the runaways is trying Sisko's patience. When a bomb explodes in Quark's, Rogon is severely injured and Mardak's mother is killed. Rogon grants the runaways their freedom to prevent more bloodshed. In response, Caldor incites his crew to mutiny and attacks the station, in an effort to force return of the slaves. O'Brien uses the Chiaran's own weapons to help stop the attack. Rogon and Mardak leave DS9, one returning home, the other taking his people to a new home. (Mike W. Barr; Gordon Purcell, Terry Pallot; Purcell, Tim Eldred) 06 Jan 94 "Field trip" Sisko and Dax accompany Keiko O'Brien and her class, on a field trip to the other side of the wormhole. On the way back, an electrical malfunction injures Sisko and Dax, and damages the runabout's guidance and telemetry systems. Keiko, Jake, and Nog must find the wormhole and get the ship back to safety before life support fails. (Mike W. Barr; Rob Davis, Terry Pallot; Jerome Moore) "Pickpocket" After losing his communicator to a pickpocket, Bashir commiserates with Quark over Odo's absence and the lack of security, even in the bar. Deciding to solve the case themselves, Quark's Regulars (the customers who owe him money) are pressed into decoy service. The self-deputized constables catch a dangerous criminal and an innocent accomplice. (John Vornholt;;) "Program 359" Dax and Bashir run into Sisko coming out of a holosuite again. Dax is concerned about Sisko's repeated trips visits to the holosuite. Bashir uses his medical authority to examine Sisko's program. They discover that Sisko has been fighting the battle of Wolf 359 over and over again, losing each time. When Sisko catches them viewing his program, Dax and Bashir learn that he has finally come to terms with his actions at Wolf 359, and with his wife's death. (Colin Clayton, Chris Dows;;) 07 Feb 94 Working vacation To prevent Kira from disrupting discussions with Gul Dukat about a mining agreement, Sisko assigns her the job of envoy to Zaria 5, on the other side of the wormhole. The contract administrator of Zaria 5, a resort world, wants to discuss commercial development with the Federation. On arrival, Kira learns that she has been assigned a personal steward to attend to all her needs. As she learns more about Zaria 5, she becomes increasingly irritated. Zarian society consists of a master and servant class. Each year, a negotiation by combat establishes their contractual relationship, but since the servant class has no trained warriors, they have never won a negotiation, and remain virtual slaves. Kira's warrior blood boils when she learns that her steward is this year's combatant for the servants. She tries to teach him some basic fighting skills, but he is not up to the task. Kira takes matters into her own hands and takes her steward's place, winning the negotiation for the servants. She leaves the planet in turmoil, but the servants are in a position to establish a more equitable contract. Sisko is upset with Kira, but she reminds him that she is not a Starfleet officer, and not bound by the Prime Directive. Then she asks Sisko when he will allow her another vacation. (Len Strazewski; Rob Davis, Terry Pallot; Dan and David Day) 08 May 94 Requiem, 1 A young Bajoran girl is writing in her diary when the Cardassians arrive and take her parents away. Two years later, DS9's primary reactor fails. Sisko recruits Dulath, a Cardassian engineer, to help O'Brien restart one of several contaminated reactors before the backup reactor fails. O'Brien reluctantly goes to work with Dulath, who was once DS9's chief engineer. Sisko explains that he lost his job after shutting down the contaminated reactors. While examining a conduit, O'Brien discovers a functioning power generator and a diary. Kira reads the diary and learns that a young girl, perhaps the daughter of Bajoran resistance leader Malor Bet, once hid in the conduit, with help from Quark. She questions Quark, but Dulath has her answer. The girl's name was Malor Ti. Finding the diary has affected Kira deeply. In a holosuite, she programs an image of Malor Ti. (Mark A. Altman; Gordon Purcell, Scott Reed; Gordon Purcell, Terry Pallot) 09 Jun 94 Requiem, 2 Kira asks Sisko to let her search for Malor Ti, whom she believes may still be alive and in hiding somewhere in the quarantined area of DS9. O'Brien and Dulath decide to work separately in order to restart an off-line reactor before the backup reactor fails. While Odo conducts a search for the girl, O'Brien finds a bomb in the reactor he and Dulath have been working on. Uncertain whether to trust Dulath, Sisko goes with O'Brien's gut instincts. After the backup reactor fails, Dulath and O'Brien restart the off-line reactor just in time. O'Brien also finds the body of Malor Ti in an access tube near the reactor. Bashir determines that she died of radiation poisoning several months before. Kira realizes that it was Malor Ti who placed the bomb in the reactor and died for her efforts. A Cardassian ship arrives to pick up Dulath. O'Brien bids goodbye to a new friend and Kira mourns for a young girl. (Mark A. Altman; Gordon Purcell, Scott Reed, Larry Welch; Kirk, Terry Pallot) "Hearts and Minds: Prelude" After taking on supplies and a little R&R on DS9, a Klingon vessel begins an exploratory mission into the Gamma Quadrant, but they are attacked by Cardassians. Finding their weapons sabotaged, the Klingons chose to self-destruct, doing as much damage as they can, rather than surrender. This story continues in the "Hearts and Minds" mini-series. (Mark A. Altman; Rob Davis, Terry Pallot; na) 10 Jun 94 Descendants Two humanoid life forms arrive through the wormhole without a spacecraft or protective gear. Sisko allows them to come aboard, but is prevented from examining them by Bajoran residents of the station, who believe the visitors to be Prophets. The "Prophets" begin wandering throughout DS9, leaving glowing, orb-like objects in their wake. While Dax speculates that they might be Preservers, Odo is suspicious and investigates. Watching the visitors touch station residents, Odo confirms his suspicions that they are not what they appear to be. When he finds an orb-like object he asks Bashir to examine it. To their surprise, it hatches into a flying creature, which they manage to contain in a force-field. The visitors assure Sisko that the creatures are tame, but Odo instructs a security guard to fire his phaser at the visitors. They are revealed as adult creatures of the same type as the hatchlings. They inform Sisko that DS9 has been chosen as an incubator for their young, and the station's residents will serve as food. The creatures prove resistant to phasers, but O'Brien transports them into space, and the station's weapons are used to drive them back into the wormhole. (Dan Mishkin; Leonard Kirk, Terry Pallot; Kirk, Pallot) 11 Jul 94 A short fuse Cardassians stage a surprise raid on DS9, taking over the station and capturing the command crew. Jake and Nog are the station's only hope. At least, that's how they imagine their roles on DS9 to be. When Odo wanders by their usual perch, high above the Promenade, they learn he is searching for signs of a bomb. Sisko and Odo insist that the boys return to their quarters. O'Brien recommends that they have patience with their elders, but Jake and Nog sneak off to search on their own. Jake wonders if things would be different if his mother were still alive. When they find a suspicious object, Jake and Nog take it to Ops, where they convince Dax to beam it into space (and into the wormhole). Expecting to be hailed as heroes, the boys are somewhat dismayed to learn that Odo found the bomb in Quark's bar. O'Brien is considerably more than dismayed when he learns that the "bomb" beamed into space was his long-awaited, brand new sub-space field analyzer. (Charles Marshall; Leonard Kirk, Bruce McCorkindale; Kirk, Terry Pallot) 12 Jul 94 Baby on board While counting the night's profits, Quark discovers an abandoned Bajoran baby. It's too late to find someone else to do the dirty work, so Quark takes the child home, and manages to feed and change the child with only moderate success. The next morning, Quark turns the baby over to Odo, who wears himself out morphing his hands into amusing toys to try and calm the bawling infant. Just before Odo becomes a puddle, Sisko arrives to take over. Jake is late for school so he can't babysit. Sisko plays with the child and reminisces about the days when Jake was a baby. When Dax stops by, she is assigned daycare duty so that Sisko can meet with a Federation inspector. The baby girl isn't comfortable with Dax. Dr. Bashir suggests that the child wants to breast-feed. Dax is relieved when the good doctor synthesizes some Bajoran breast milk before he is called away for an inspection. Kira arrives just in time to relieve Dax of diaper duty and eventually sings the baby to sleep with a Bajoran lullaby. When O'Brien arrives and wakes the baby, Kira gives him custody. Called away to meet with the inspector, O'Brien leaves the child in his quarters where Molly finds her and asks Keiko if they can keep the baby. Keiko takes the infant to Ops, where the Federation inspector is berating Sisko and his staff for looking as though they haven't slept. Fortunately he understands the rigors of parenthood and commends the DS9 staff for taking care of the child, whose mother turns up in sickbay, having misplaced her daughter while delerious with fever. Also contains "Everything you ever wanted to know about Trills but were afraid to ask" by Mark Altman. (Charles Marshall; Leonard Kirk, Bruce McCorkindale; Kirk, Terry Pallot) 13 Aug 94 Lapse Bashir vaccinates everyone aboard DS9, including Odo, to prevent the spread of a virulent strain of Bajoran flu. Odo has agreed to test security systems by staging a mock attack on the station, but he reacts badly to the vaccine and becomes convinced that everyone is out to get him. Quark tries to convice Odo that they are friends, as does Kira. Odo's paranoia creates havoc for station personnel until Bashir finds a puddle of Odo. While recovering, Odo experiences vague and tantalizing memories of his past. Also contains "Crossover of the Millenium: An interview with Mike W. Barr and Michael Jan Friedman" by Shaun McLaughlin. (Charles Marshall; Leonard Kirk, Bruce McCorkindale; Kirk, Terry Pallot) 14 Sep 94 Dax's comet, 1 A Bajoran religious cult, living underground for centuries, is ready to emerge again to greet the Messenger and wage the Battle of the Gods. Meanwhile, the DS9 crew tries to maintain order in the face of rumors of an impending apocalypse. Kira explains the mythology of a planet-wide catastrophe occurring every two thousand years. Dax believes the rumors may have some truth to them because long-range sensors have detected a comet on a collision course with the wormhole. The Guardians, leaders of the religious cult, learn that Sisko has asked Starfleet for permission to alter the comet's course. A saboteur dies in his own blast without causing major damage to DS9, when the Guardians arrive at the station. They demand that Sisko cease his interference in spite of the threat to Bajor. Note: When placed side-by-side, the covers of issues #14 and #15 form a single illustration. (Jerry Bingham; Tim Eldred; Bruce McCorkindale; Leonard Kirk, Terry Pallot) 15 Oct 94 Dax's comet, 2 The station is in turmoil and the Guardians are escorted to a security suite under protective custody. Guardian acolytes resort to violence in an attempt to take control of the station, but Odo thwarts their efforts. Sisko receives word from the Federation, denying permission to interfere with the comet's course, but Dax estimates that the comet's collision with the wormhole will light up the quadrant. Sisko confronts the Guardians, accusing them of cowardice for not helping rebuild Bajoran civilization, while Dax talks Bashir, Kira, and Odo through some complicated runabout manouvers to turn the comet from its course, in spite of regulations. Note: When placed side-by-side, the covers of issues #14 and #15 form a single illustration. (Jerry Bingham; Tim Eldred; Bruce McCorkindale; Leonard Kirk, Terry Pallot) 16 Nov 94 Shanghaied A Jerakan freighter docks at DS9 and Quark steers two young Bajorans looking for work, to the Jerakans. Three days later, Odo comes looking for Quark. The Bajorans were reported missing by their families. Odo believes they were shanghaied by the Jerakans and insists that Quark help get them back. When a second Jerakan ship arrives looking for more crew, Quark and Rom are shanghaied, but Rom turns out to be Odo. Using a ruse, Odo and Quark take over the ship, contact the first Jerakan vessel, and order them to return to DS9, promising that no Jerakan ships will ever be allowed through the wormhole if they don't comply. Back at DS9, Kira suggests that Bajorans would be willing to work for the Jerakans if conditions were agreed upon in advance. (John Vornholt; Leonard Kirk, Jack Snider, Richard Emond; Kirk, Terry Pallot) 17 Dec 94 Images While having a nightmare about Marritza ("Duet"), Kira is awakened by a message from Bajor. She is instructed to meet and provide security for Sueriel, a half Cardassian Bajoran spy, returning home. Once aboard DS9, Sueriel finds that her Cardassian appearance is despised by resident Bajorans and also attracts the attention of the Circle. Sueriel is severely beaten by members of the Circle and she begs Bashir to destroy her face. Instead, Bashir performs reconstructive surgery and fakes Sueriel's death. With Sueriel's help, Kira captures a Bajoran double agent who is using a ring of the Circle to do his dirty work. (Laurie S. Sutton; Leonard Kirk, Jack Snider; Kirk, Terry Pallot) 18 Jan 95 "Hearts of old" Gwyn, Jadzia's childhood friend and lover before she joined with Dax, arrives on DS9 with Tev, his female Klingon crewmate.

Sutton; Leonard Kirk, Jack Snider, Richard Emond, Larry Welch; Kirk, Terry Pallot) "Wargames" A Federation team beams into a Maquis camp, finding it deserted except for Lt. Cmdr. Kelloway of the Grissom, who claims he was abducted by the Maquis and forced to help repair some of their ships.

(Dan Mishkin; Ken Penders, Arne Starr; Penders) 20 Mar 95 Last remains An electromagnetic pulse causes stationwide failures, the destruction of a ship coming through the wormhole, and a shift in Bajor's rotational axis. Dax identifies the source as something inside the wormhole. While Sisko considers his options, which include collapsing the wormhole, a probe reveals the remains of a Romulan warship inside the wormhole.
