O'Brien is convicted of espionage by the Argrathi and sentenced to twenty years prison, the memories of his incarceration are implanted in a matter of hours and he is released. Returning to the station, the Chief finds himself struggling to cope with his memories...
O'Brien must suffer. Like Whispers, Armageddon Game and Visionary before, this episode puts our Chief everyman into an impossible Kobayashi Maru. This time he's accused of espionage against the Argrathi in the Gamma Quadrant and given memories of twenty years in prison. After many years he ends up killing his cell mate over scraps of food and when he returns to the station that haunts him.

Colm delivers another stellar performance playing O'Brien through all of the difficult emotions.
