good episode
23 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this was a great episode, the action was really intense. But it wasn't as good at the last episode in season 5.

In this this epsidoe the definant leads a combined fleet of Federation, Klingon and Romulan ships to attack Cardassian space.

I liked this episode a lot, and its a shame terry Farrell was killed off.

I assume from reading the other comment it was her decision, although I'm not to sure.

Gul Dakat (great character, not used much this season) beams on board DS9 and kills her, he also breaks a Bajoran religios artefact which makes the prophets disappear.

One of deep space nines biggest strengths was its cast, and they all play a part in this episode. Which is good considering the size of the cast, they all get a fair amount of screen time. The Quark/Bashir scenes are very funny.

Season 6 is a great season, but I prefer season 5 overall.
