A very good part 1...very, very good.
7 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I'll be the first to admit that the first couple seasons of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" had quite a few dull episodes, by the 3rd season onward, the show had hit its stride and the quality increased dramatically. The new enemies, the Dominion and their army of Jem'Hadar, were excellent baddies and meant that instead of slow and cerebral episodes, more violent and intense episodes would be to come. Here in part 1 of a 2 part series, the violence level increases, as hostilities from the Dominion seem about to break out once again.

When the show begins, the station intercepts a faint Cardassian signal emanating from the Gamma Quadrant. When Garak is asked to translate the message, he says it's meaningless and unimportant-- which obviously means it's important! So, when Garak tries to escape the base to investigate, Worf is waiting to catch him and the two go on the mission together. Unfortunately, the Jem'Hadar show up and take the two prisoner. Unexpectedly, they meet a couple of folks they thought were dead--a Klingon officer and the nasty leader of the Cardassian Obsidian order, Enabran Tain (Paul Dooley). What's next? See it for yourself! And, be prepared for a few surprises.
