Sisko has visions of the future
1 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When the Cardassians return a painting of the Bajoran lost city of B'hala Captain Sisko is determined to find it, there is a clue in the picture and he uses the holosuite to create a three dimensional image of the obelisk which is believed to give the location. Before he solves the mystery there is an accident and soon after he begins to have visions. This is happening at a bad time as Bajor is due to join the Federation and Sisko is meant to be taking a leading role in the ceremony. His visions do lead to the discovery of the city but they also start to make him ill but even though Dr. Bashir says it could kill him he refuses to be treated believing he has more to learn from his visions. Indeed his next vision tells him something that comes as a shock to everybody and will have profound implications for the future of Bajor.

This was a fairly good episode which returns to a plot thread which started all the way back in the first episode, namely whether or not Bajor would join the Federation. I quite liked the fact that we weren't shown Sisko's visions, this helped maintain a sense of mystery.
