Storyline

A team of Cardassian scientists comes to visit the station to help setup a subspace communications relay in the Gamma Quadrant. Suddenly a Vedek, Yarka, wants to speak with Sisko. He brings a warning from the prophets and advises not to let the Cardassians on the station. He refers to Trakor's third prophecy that tells that three vipers, the Cardassians, will return to their nest in the sky, Deep Space Nine, ultimately leading to the destruction of the Celestial Temple, the wormhole. Sisko and Kira dismiss it at first, since only two Cardassians scientists are coming. Then a third Cardassian scientist arrives and Kira begins to believe the prophecy. When more and more of the predictions are coming true, Sisko must make a choice between his Federation duties and his role as Emissary. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The Prophecies of Trakor in this episode resemble the writings of Michel de Nostredame, a 16th-century Frenchman better known as Nostradamus. This Frenchman was said to have written extensively about important 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century events in metaphoric language that could only be interpreted correctly in retrospect. See more »

Goofs

The crew of the Defiant observe a comet near to the gamma quadrant exit to the worm hole. The comet has a tail - comets only develop tails as they approach a star. The star heats up the comet, which produces a tail of water vapor which always points away from the star. See more »

Religious nuts? Not likely...
22 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Erick Avari and Tracy Scoggins

Erick Avari and Tracy Scoggins guest star in this installment of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9"--Avari plays a Bajoran religious leader and Scoggins a Cardassian who is pretty decent...and who falls in love with Miles O'Brien!

When the episode begins, Bajoran prophecies are brought to the fore, as what's happening now around the wormhole was foretold by religious leaders of old. Not surprisingly, Sisko is very skeptical-- especially when his being the Emissary is brought up again and again in light of the prophecy about the wormhole. At the same time, some Cardassians are on the base...and folks are very suspicious of them.

I appreciated how the Bajoran prophecies are NOT superstitions on the show. In fact, this an other episodes often seem to support the prophecies and create a highly unusual atmosphere for the show. Well done and worth seeing.
