This episode was also showcased in the 2006 special edition release Star Trek: Fan Collective - Klingon.
The station is full of Klingons who have arrived to help Starfleet fight the Dominion. They are led by General Martok, who is not being open with Captain Sisko about the Klingons' plans and motives. While on the station, Martok's troops commit several questionable acts, including attacking the Cardassian tailor Elim Garak, and searching ships without warrants in Bajoran space. Sisko calls on the one officer in Starfleet who has perhaps the most experience in dealing with Klingons: Worf (who joins just after the destruction of the Enterprise-D.)
[edit to add]...
The station, which has been recently armed with improved weapons including 5000 photon torpedoes which the Klingons think is a bluff, defends itself well but still takes heavy damage. Klingon warriors beam aboard and attack the crew at Ops with bat'leths. Losses are great on both sides. When several Starfleet vessels arrive, Sisko argues with Gowron that this situation is the best their mutual enemy, the Dominion, could hope for. With the most powerful Alpha Quadrant forces at war with each other, the Dominion will be free to sweep in and take over. A furious Gowron agrees and the Klingons stand down, but not before warning Sisko; "You have sided against us in battle, and this, we do not forgive - or forget!"
Oddly, those weapon systems appear to have disappeared by 2409.
