Storyline

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

Quotes

Chief O'Brien: Julian, it's time to face facts: you're not gonna pull a rabbit out of your medkit.
Doctor Bashir: You wanna face facts? Face this fact: Section 31 have managed to stay in hiding for three *hundred* years. They're not gonna come scurrying into the light just because Miles O'Brien and Julian Bashir are on the case.

Wow...some pretty crazy things happen in this one!
28 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of many episodes towards the end of the run of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" that make up one gigantic story. Instead of the usual self-contained plot or two-parter, here the show becomes more like a mini-series or soap opera with several plot threads that continue episode after episode.

The most bloody and interesting concerns Gowron and his seeming willingness to destroy his fleet. For no apparent reason (other, perhaps than to keep Martok from gaining more fame), Gowron has sent the fleet into several no-win situations. Now, he proposes yet another insane raid--one that will probably get everyone killed. The problem is that Martok is not willing to do what it takes to stop Gowron's madness and so the task is left to Worf. His solution is, to say the least, pretty extreme!

As for the Cardassian rebels, Kira, Odo and Garak are out to capture one of the Dominion's ships which has the new Breen weapon. This is because with one shot it can destroy a Federation ship--and they need to get one of the weapons to examine.

Finally, with no real success in finding a cure for Odo's illness, the Chief and Dr. Bashir come up with a nutty plan to flush out someone from Section 31 who can give them a cure.

This is quite good like other shows in the series. Perhaps it's a tiny bet better since it is bloodier!
