Storyline

A Bajoran transport with Vedek Bareil and Kai Winn aboard has an accident. When they arrive on the station, Bareil is critically injured. While Bashir tries do everything he can to save him, Kai Winn tells Sisko she and Bareil are involved in advanced peace talks with the Cardassians. The Cardassians are willing to pay reparations and even might be issuing a formal apology. Winn stresses the negotiations would have never come this far if it wasn't for Bareil and that she would be unable to complete them without Bareil being there. Meanwhile Jake tries to cancel a game of dom-jot with Nog to go out with a girl, Leanne. Nog thinks Jake also arranged a girl for him and Jake agrees to make it a double date. But things don't go as Jake has planned. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

The writers are just making way for Odo...
22 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Life Support" is a good episode and well worth seeing. However, to me it seems pretty obvious that the main reason for this episode is to kill off Vedek Bariel so that a new plot involving Odo and Kira falling in love can take place.

When the show begins, Kai Winn and her assistant, Vedek Bariel, arrive on Deep Space 9 for some negotiations with Cardassia. Why? Because they want to get past the stormy past between the two planets in order for them to grow bast that. However, there is an accident on their way there and Bariel is nearly killed. But since he is so important to the negotiations, he and Kai Winn work against Dr. Bashir's orders and there is a good chance that this will end up killing Bariel.

Interesting and well written--and another chance to see the tricky and snake-like Kai Winn!
