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)

The Character of Bajor
16 October 2008 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Sanctuary is a powerful character-development episode focusing on Kira Nerrise and the politics of her home planet, Bajor. Agricultural refugees from the Gamma Quadrant come pouring out of the wormhole in search of a prophesied homeland. Bajor fits the description, but can the Bajoran provisional government overcome the trauma of the recently ended Cardassian occupation and its own fears to accept a population of aliens? Nana Visitor (Kira) and guest star Betty McGuire (Vayna) are excellent and have great on-screen chemistry in this well scripted and powerful character study.

Recommended for viewing in sequence with earlier episodes of DS9. The episode does not stand alone, but builds on the Bajoran and Dominion arcs.
