When Sisko is making dinner he pushes away Kasidy when she tries to stir. He then puts his hands on the rim of the pot and touches the side of the pot without getting burnt. See more »


Damar: You expect me to agree to territorial concessions, when I haven't even seen what they are?
Weyoun: Damar, you are missing the point. We need the Breen to win this war. When it's over, there will be more than enough territories available to compensate Cardassia for the loss of a few minor planets.
Damar: There're no minor planets in the Cardassian Union.

Like all the later episodes, this is part of one long and intricate plot that lasts through the finale.
28 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The final 10 (give or take) episodes of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" were completely unlike previous shows. Instead of a single self- contained or even two-part episode, ALL the later episodes form one gigantic episode with the same plot threads running throughout.

The two biggest and most important plots concern the Cardassian alliance as well as Kai Winn's commitment to the Prophets. As far as the Cardassians go, this is the low point for the Union. The Vorta (and, in effect, the Dominion) seem to have less and less regard for their Cardassian allies--and it is becoming more obvious by the alliance with the Breen. You just wonder how much Weyoun 8 can disrespect and disregard the Cardassians until the Cardassians fight back and help the Federation. As far as Kai Winn goes, this is THE episode where she finally realizes her visions are NOT from the Prophets but from the Pah-Wraiths (the Bajoran version of demons). She is appalled and a point. But when it comes down to it, her allegiance if governed more by a thirst for power than for what is right.

Well made and really, really tough to score because of the style of plot. However, the episode did have a few funny moments between the Cardassian leader and Weyoun 7 and 8!
