I meant I thought this particular episode just covered a week or so, due to how fast things seem to move. I am aware the time period covered in an episode varies from episode to episode.
The episode only documents the incidents that are plot-relevant, obviously. The days when Sisko goes to his office and does paperwork aren't plot relevant, so they're skipped. That must be why it "seems" faster to you.
