O'Brien: How are we for time?
BASHIR: It's going to be tight. We've to get her in the shuttle and back on the ship in twenty minutes.
(They land in a thunderstorm. Water is pouring through the cave roof.)
BASHIR: Still no life readings.
Sisko: This has to be the only direction she could have headed in.
(Further in, where it's dry.)
Bashir: Over here.
(It's a skeleton in a uniform)
Bashir: It was a human female. 51 years of age at the time of death. Cause of death, carbon dioxide poisoning.
SISKO: It can't be Lisa. That woman's been dead for years.
BASHIR: Three years and two months. But all the evidence fits. Age, rank, the way she died.
SISKO: If she's been dead for three years, how has she been talking to us?
O'BRIEN: It must have something to do with the energy barrier. When her subspace radio signal passed through the metrion radiation in the barrier, the signal somehow time shifted into the future.
BASHIR: Then when you sent the return signal?
O'BRIEN: It went through the barrier and traveled back in time in the same way.
SISKO: We've been talking to someone from the past?
BASHIR: So what do we do now?
O'BRIEN: We should bury her.
SISKO: No, not here. Not alone in this cave. We'll take her back with us. Give her a proper burial among friends.
(Drink, food, and the host in her flag-draped torpedo case coffin.)
DAX: It's called an Irish wake. It's a way to memorialise a death and celebrate life at the same time.
Worf: What are we supposed to do?
DAX: Well, drink, sing songs, laugh, cry, talk about the deceased.
Worf: It sounds almost Klingon.
(Kasidy is staring out of the window.)
