An infant rescued by DS9 from a wrecked ship suddenly begins growing and maturing at an alarming rate. Able to speak and reason, the boy -- now a teenager, and now played by Bumper Robinson -- reveals himself to be a Jem'Hadar, one of the soldiers of the dreaded Dominion. Taking a paternal interest in the boy, Odo tries to deflect him from a life of violence and murder. Meanwhile, Sisko looks askance at his son Jake's latest girlfriend, a Dabo named Marta (Jill Sayre). Written by D. Thomas Malo and Steve Warnek and directed by Avery Brooks, "The Abandoned" first aired November 5, 1994.
