Comencement of hostilities
8 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Carrying on where the previous episode left off the Dominion Fleet is streaming through the wormhole and the limited fleet at DS9 prepares to stand against the insurmountable odds. Surprisingly the incoming fleet turns away and heads towards Cardassia, Gul Dukat heads towards them as if to attack but when called back announces that he isn't attacking but joining the Dominion fleet as Cardassia has decided to join the Dominion. In the Gamma Quadrant Garak is working to find a way to remotely contact the runabout so they can beam off the prison asteroid, the problem is that he is claustrophobic and the controls are in the wall space and require a lot of adjustments. While he is busy in the wall-space Worf is forced to fight against the Jem'Hadar which at least distracts the other guards. They must work fast so that they can alert DS9 to the presence of the Founder who is impersonating Dr. Bashir before he can complete his task.

This was another great episode with two gripping plots, while it was not very surprising that the prisoners in the Gamma Quadrant escaped I was surprised when Dukat joined the Dominion as I didn't think he'd leave his daughter to face almost certain death on DS9. With Cardassia joining the Dominion and a fleet of Federation, Klingon and Romulan ships amassed at DS9 the battle lines for the upcoming war are being drawn.
