When the crew in the runabout finally are able to open the blast shutters, they look straight and up through the shuttle windows and see the Defiant. but when the picture zooms out, the Defiant is below the runabout, considering the angle of the runabout, all they should see is empty space.

One Tiny Step For Mankind
22 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While taking a break from the war the Defiant is leading an expedition to investigate a strange anomaly; anything going in is shrunk considerably. It is thought that it will be safe to send a shuttle in, as the crew will return to their proper size along with the shuttle when it exits the anomaly. Unfortunately while Dax, Chief O'Brien and the Doctor are inside the anomaly the Defiant is attacked by the Jem'Hadar and their shuttle is thrown out of the anomaly in its shrunken state. With the Defiant under Jem'Hadar control it will be up to the tiny shuttle and its crew to help disable the bridge controls so that Captain Sisko can retake the ship.

This was a fun episode; it was amusing watching Dr Bashir winding up the Chief about them being reduced in size and the shuttle craft was surprisingly cute as it buzzed around engineering shooting at the Jem'Hadar. This episode also introduced a division within the Jem'Hadar that was previously not known about; those created in the Alpha Quadrant clearly believe that they are superior to those created in the Gamma Quadrant.
