Operation Return has begun. The goals: to get through the Dominion/Cardassian blockade; to retake Deep Space 9; and to stop the Dominion from destroying the minefield blocking the wormhole. However, the blockade is barely budging, and time is running out. Meanwhile, on Terok Nor (Deep Space 9), the resistance members are arrested, awaiting execution for trying to stop the minefield from being taken down. Although Quark and Ziyal rescue them, and Odo comes to his senses, are the resistance, and the Defiant, too late to stop the Dominion reinforcements? Written by movieguy3

The poem that O'Brien and Bashir quote is 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' by Alfred Lord Tennyson. See more »


After Sisko says "Evasive maneuvers, Pattern Omega. We're going through.", there is a flash on the bridge from enemy fire. During the flash, if you look closely, there is a ship diagram of an Excelsior-class ship in the background behind Sisko on the left side of the screen. Defiant is not an Excelsior-class starship.

Very good but there are a couple problems with this one.
20 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Inexplicably, the Dominion and Cardassians troops aboard the space station allow Jake and others a lot of freedom. They are supposed to be evil--but they allow everyone who has a reason to hate them to have full access to just about everything. Regardless, these forces are working hard to find a way past Rom's minefield. In fact, by the end of the show, it looks like this defense grid is shot to heck. So, it's up to Sisko's friends living inside the wormhole, them Prophets, to come to the rescue.

While this is an exciting episode, there are a few logical issues with it. Plus, I am a bit tired of the Prophets and the way they interact with Sisko. Good but it could have been better.
