Storyline

Odo is affected by the disease threatening to eliminate his race more than he lets on to, while Kira has to deal with the Cardassians' dislike of her. Worf suspects that Gowron's military strategies are meant to humiliate Martok's command abilities, without thought of the consequences for the Klingons as a whole. Even though General Martok sees Chancellor Gowron's move as part of a political vendetta, he does nothing about it. Meanwhile, O'Brien suggests to Bashir that he announce that he has found a cure to the changelings' disease to lure someone from Section 31 to DS9. Written by Moviedude1

Trivia

Armin Shimerman's (Quark) wife makes a cameo as the female Vorta Luaran. Shimerman himself does not appear in the episode, or the next one because he was shooting the final episodes for the third season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). His character, Principal Snyder, has an important part to play in them. See more »

Behind enemy lines
27 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After several episodes which gives several plot threads roughly equal time this one has one primary story and a couple of secondary plots. The main plot involves Kira, Odo, Garak and members of the Cardassian resistance going on a mission deep in to Dominion territory to steal a Jem'Hadar ship which has recently had Breen weaponry installed. Everything goes according to plan until they take over the bridge of the ship, then they learn the weapons upgrade is behind schedule and they must wait an hour hoping that nobody will come to the bridge in that time. During that time tempers fray and Rusot threatens to kill Col. Kira. While this is going on things are not looking good for Odo, his illness is getting worse and changing shape does not help.

Back on DS9 Dr Bashir is having no luck finding a cure to Odo's illness but Chief O'Brien come up with a plan that may lead them to getting the information they need off Section 31. After a military disaster Gowron blames Martok even though it was his own planning to blame. After this failure he orders an even more foolhardy mission which leads to Worf confronting the Chancellor.

This was a good tense episode with sufficient action including a duel between Klingons and a Mexican standoff aboard the captured Jem'Hadar ship. It also sees the end of a couple of secondary characters.
