In preparation for the coming war with the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, the Dominion constructed six drydock bays at the station in 2373 and significantly upgraded it on par with Deep Space Nine. It quickly became a major resupply base for the Dominion-Cardassian Fleet.
Later that year Lieutenant Commander Seff O'Rourke and Major Peter Madison used a captured Cardassian freighter named Narkonna to sneak an assault force aboard the station and seize control. ("Narkonna")
Command of the station and small shipyard was turned over to the Bajoran government after the war.
