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

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.

Great episode, but we need to talk about the elephant in the wormhole
20 October 2014 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Action-wise, this is certainly one of the best episodes of DS9. But it also has character development, ties well with the previous episodes, and the ending is excellent, thanks to the fact that Marc Alaimo's Dukat always seems to steal the show - and here he is given a lot to work with.

However, I can't give the episode more than a 6, when the major plot development depends on the most childish, disappointing, "oh god they can't possibly use that" deus ex machina imaginable (by literally anyone who has seen the show).

Let's just say that even if Q just appeared without warning or reason and decided to help the Federation, it would be a better solution. It is inconceivable that the people who wrote this otherwise fine episode came up with this predictable and woefully unconvincing magic trick to turn the tide of the war.
