When the Defiant and the Rotarran join the mixed Klingon/Federation fleet, several Galaxy-class vessels, being the most notorious among others, have no registry number or identification at all. Also, there are three small ships that would appear to be Defiant-class, although the Defiant itself was said to be the only one in service. See more »

Had Jake been less annoying, I could have easily given this one a 9.
19 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Often "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" would end their seasons with exciting cliffhangers about pending intergalactic wars. Generally, these were among the best of the show, as they were really exciting and action-packed--and a bit contrast to the usually cerebral episodes. So, the fact that I really liked this one is certainly no surprise.

There is a HUGE build-up of Jem'Hadar ships poised to come through the wormhole. At the same time, a combined Cardassian and Jem'Hadar fleet has assembled near DS9. So, it looks pretty obvious that the long-awaited war is about to occur. In a last-ditch effort, Sisko orders the Defiant to mine the entrance to the wormhole and Rom has figured out a way to make these mines self-replicating! Will they have to use the mines or can war be somehow averted?

Apart from some annoying antics from Jake, this is a very good show- -as is the follow-up that will follow. Well worth seeing and one of the better shows of the season.
