Stardate: Unknown--The station is buzzing with the news that Kira has finally gone into labor. But Odo is surprisingly uninterested, having his own "baby" to deal with. The former Changeling has purchased an ailing infant Changeling from Quark, and after Dr. Bashir heals the creature, begins the task of trying to teach his "child" to shapeshift.
He is clearly displeased when Dr. Mora, the Bajoran scientist who "raised" Odo, arrives on the station to help.
