Storyline

Kira has found out a Valerian ship, known for transporting dolamide, used in Cardassian weapons, to Bajor, is about to dock at DS9. She is convinced the Valerians are still trading the stuff and wants to deny them, but Sisko disagrees with her. He is only prepared to let Kira take action when she provides evidence. Meanwhile a Klingon ship returns early from a mission in the gamma quadrant. It explodes in front of the station and a Klingon who managed to beam aboard dies almost instantly. Odo tries to find out what happened, but after he experiences some weird pain that causes his head to split in two, he notices something has happened to the crew. All over the ship people seem very adamant to choose sides between Kira and Sisko. It looks there's a mutiny as Kira has plans to get rid of Sisko and tries to get as much support as possible.

Paranoia and mutiny
25 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Shortly after a Klingon vessel comes through the worm hole it explodes, one crew member members to beam over to DS9 but dies after muttering a single word; Victory. From then on all those present, apart from Odo start to behave strangely. At first it just seems it is a slight difference of opinion between Sisko and Kira concerning a freighter that may be taking materials to the Cardassians that could be used for weapons. Soon it seems that the senior staff are divided between backing Sisko and Kira. Odo realises that something is wrong but isn't sure what can be done to remedy the problem. Before things got too serious Dax and O'Brien went out to find the data recorder from the Klingon's ship. When the recorder is examined it becomes apparent that they too had a confrontation between the crew. It appears that shortly before their mutiny the found a telepathic recording about a conflict in a long dead civilisation, clearly this recording effected the Klingon's and now effecting the senior crew of DS9. When he figures out what is going on he seeks help from the doctor who believes himself to be unaffected it is just a question whether the two of them can solve the problem before people start to get seriously hurt.

This was a decent episode, it was fun to see the crew who are usually friends turn more and more paranoid and divided as the telepathic imprints take effect. It was especially funny to see Kira throw Quark across the bar.
