The wormhole is showing erratic behavior by sudden openings and the Bajorans think it's a message from the prophets. Then grave news arrives on Deep Space Nine. There has been a bombing with 27 dead in Antwerp and a changeling has been spotted on the crime scene. The thing most feared has happened: the changelings have reached Earth. The Sisko's and Odo travel to Earth and admiral Leyton makes Sisko acting head of Starfleet Security on Earth. The captain's first task is to convince the president of the Federation, Jaresh-Inyo, to implement harsh security measures. The changelings aren't Sisko's only problem. He also has to deal with his stubborn father, who refuses to follow doctor's advice. Jake meets with Nog who tells him he has problems at the Academy. He doesn't seem to be accepted by a group of elite cadets known as Red Squad. Written by

The TNG style uniform can be seen again in this episode when Sisko returns to Earth where he and Starfleet command are wearing them. This is the first time up to this point that a main character reverts to the former uniform. Examples of other use is when Thomas Riker impersonates William Riker and when Worf joined the station. This adds to the confusion throughout the series up to this episode with the use of TNG and DS9/VOY style uniforms. In theory, if a change was made in the style of uniforms there could be a time period allowed for the change such as could be explained in "Star Trek Generations" although in actuality it is thought that there were not enough uniforms for all actors to wear the same style as the movie was filmed at the same time as DS9. However, Worf joined the station after the "Enterprise" was destroyed in "Generations" and casts doubt on that theory. One possible theory of the difference in uniforms could be to set officers apart depending on the environment they were assigned to; ie: starships and command - TNG and space stations - DS9/VOY. It is possible to concede that by the time Voyager was launched, the complete change over to the DS9/VOY style uniforms was complete. Another change in style of uniforms would be the cadet uniforms. In TNG their uniforms were similar the DS9/VOY being black and red and in this episode we see the uniforms being gray and red. See more
[Odo has taken an aerial tour of San Francisco as a seagull
It makes me wonder how many other Changelings might be flying around up there.
If all they're doing is flying around imitating seagulls, we don't have much to worry about.
