Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Garak (as Andrew J. Robinson)


After months of doing nothing but retreating from the Dominion, Sisko plans to launch a counterattack against the Dominion fleet occupying Deep Space 9/Terok Nor, with a simple goal - retake the station. However, Sisko finds out the minefield blocking the wormhole is about to be destroyed. Knowing that there are thousands of Jem'Hadar warships on the other side waiting to enter the Alpha Quadrant and annex every Federation planet, Sisko is forced to launch early, without the Ninth Fleet or the Klingons, and outnumbered two-to-one. Meanwhile, Rom is about to be executed for treason, with Odo too distracted by the Female Changeling to do anything. Written by movieguy3

Odo, you miserable jerk.
20 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Dominion is occupying DS9 and Odo is needed to help with the mine field keeping the Jem'Hadar from coming through the wormhole. This is because Sisko is tired of waiting--he wants to re-take the station and kick Dominion/Cardassian butt. But, with Odo apparently going native and spending his time 'joining' with the other changeling currently on the station, the plan sure looks like it will fall to pieces.

This episode, aside from Odo being a weasel, is really good. There is lots of action, explosions and the like and you cannot possibly be bored by this one. However, you'll need to watch the next episode to see what's next. Will they retake the station and will Odo STOP focusing on joining to the exclusion of everything else?
