Sloan: I've had enough of your lies, Doctor! You think you're smarter than the rest of us, don't you? You think you're smarter than the millions of brave men and women who put their lives on the line for the Federation? You want to do things the hard way - fine. But I'm gonna get the truth out of you, and when I'm done, I'm gonna take whatever is left of you and I'm gonna lock it away.

A return to form...
23 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The previous three episodes in a row for "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" were pretty bad. So, it's nice to see that here with "Inquisition" that the show is back on track.

The show begins with Dr. Bashir getting ready to leave the station to go to some medical conference. However, just as he's about to leave a team of Federation investigators arrive. They think that there's a traitor on board and everyone is confined to quarters until their investigation is complete. What follows is a super- paranoid episode--one that reveals for the first time that there might be a shadow organization within the Federation like the Obsidian Order within the Cardassians.

I like paranoid episodes and so I have a natural affinity for shows like this one. I also appreciate it when the shows reveal a less than warm and fuzzy presence within the Federation--mostly because for so long the Trek universe had been a bit too nice. These folks ain't nice--and it's a nice way to see the show returning to form. Well worth seeing.
