7 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am actually NOT a huge fan of violence. However, with some shows, such as "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", the more warlike the plot, generally the more enjoyable the show. Sedate and cerebral shows, on the other hand, were generally the least enjoyable. Odd but this is indeed the case.

"By Inferno's Light" is the second of a two-part episode--both of which are excellent. Both have a lot of intrigue and excitement. In the first show, Garak and Worf are captured by Jem'Hadar troops who are about to invade the Alpha Quadrant. Now in part two, their job is to survive and, if possible, find their way back to Deep Space 9. As for the folks on DS9, they see the Jem'Hadar coming but also learn that there is some traitor on the station, as key systems begin to fail. What's next in this invasion episode? See it and learn for yourself.

Overall, some very exciting stuff in this one--and well worth seeing.
