Storyline

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 Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Yet another two-parter...
29 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Homefront" and its follow-up, "Paradise Lost" are excellent shows-- and they are yet another pair of two-part episodes. This isn't a complaint--more an observation about the huge number of multi-part episodes that this and "Star Trek: The Next Generation" had.

When the show begins, the wormhole is behaving oddly--it keeps opening and closing and nothing in particular seems to be going through it. Soon a horrible tragedy occurs--a peace conference on Earth with the Romulans is blown up--apparently by the Changelings. Sisko and Odo are then ordered back to Earth. Sisko is asked to take over Starfleet's security and Odo is there to help beef up security in order to detect other shape-shifters. Paranoia is running rampant--and Sisko also has his hands full due to his super- ornery father (Brock Peters).

This episode is high on paranoia--which I generally love on the show. There also are a lot of machinations going on--and this is ushered in my the power grid of Earth going haywire at the end of the episode. What's next? See this exciting episode to find out for yourself.
