Storyline

Deep Space Nine beams aboard four aliens that have just traveled through the wormhole. The universal translator has a hard time picking up their language, but the four are finally able to identify themselves as Skrreans. Their leader, Haneek, tells they are a race that has been conquered by the T-Rogorans, who in turn have been conquered over by the Dominion. Most of their leaders were killed. Now three million Skrreans are adrift and looking for refuge. She is the first to find they 'Eye of the Universe'. According to Skrrean legends their mythical home Kentanna, a sorrowed world, is just behind the Eye. Sisko and Kira agree to help the Skreaans and soon hundreds of them visit the station. While Sisko thinks he found a suitable planet to relocate them, Draylon II, Haneek makes a discovery of her own. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Michael Piller decided to plot a down-beat ending to this episode and invert the happy ending of Frederick Rappaport's original teleplay. Piller felt that the episode would carry more resonance if things didn't turn out okay for everyone. See more »

I say space 'em!

When the episode begins, a group of four Skrreeans arrive through the wormhole. But, because they are so foreign, it takes some time for the language computers to establish communications between them. Eventually, however, this problem is worked out and they learn that this race of people have been repeatedly conquered and there are several million of them looking for sanctuary. Obviously there are too many to come to live on Deep Space 9 and later the Skrreeans insist that their planet they've been dreaming of is Bajor! The Bajorans are NOT thrilled with millions of the Skrreeans landing on their planet. The Skrreeans think they'll be an asset and seem to have a sense of entitlement to live there. Well, regardless, the Bajorans aren't about to budge and the Skrreeans dejectedly leave the station.

This is an odd episode. While the audience's sympathies would normally be with such displaced people, the Skrreeans didn't make this easy, as they seemed demanding and tough to like. Not a bad episode, really--just unusual. And, it did feel odd that the Skrreeans sulked away from the station at the end EVEN THOUGH THE FEDERATION DID HELP THEM find a home planet--just not the one they demanded. Genuinely strange.
