Storyline

All power has been cut and president Jaresh-Inyo finally agreed to Sisko and Leyton's request to put Earth under Martial Law. Starfleet security personnel is roaming the streets of every city. It's been four days since then, but still there's no sign of a Dominion invasion. Joseph Sisko decides to reopen the restaurant. Meanwhile Odo brings a strange security report to the attention of captain Sisko. Apparently Red Squad was demobilized just moments after the power was cut. While the two first think that it was to get them out of harm's way, new evidence pops up. Apparently the entire group of cadets was reassigned to field duty three hours later. Sisko gets very suspicious, especially after a Starfleet member asks him to immediately delete the report. He orders Nog to provide him the name of one of the members of Red Squad to conduct an interview. He doesn't like what the cadet tells him. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Joseph Sisko: Worried? I'm scared to death. But I'll be damned if I'm gonna let them change the way I live my life.
Captain Sisko: If the Changelings want to destroy what we've built here, they're going to have to do it themselves. We will not do it for them.

The excellent and extremely paranoid follow-up.
29 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Sisko is extremely tense. After all, the power on Earth is down and he knows that the Changelings are up to something. However, who the real enemy is you'll have to discover-- but Sisko realizes that Red Squad and other HUMANS are behind something big! The problem now is that Sisko might not be up to the task of stopping them--especially since their leader appears to be Sisko's old Captain and friend, Admiral Leyton (Robert Foxworth).

This episode was super-paranoid--even more than the first one. It also shows some of the worst parts of human nature--which I love. This is because all too often, the Star Trek future seems way too rosy and sweet. Here is evidence that people are still people! And, that Changelings aren't the only thing folks need to fear. Excellent and well worth seeing.
