Storyline

There's a party on Deep Space Nine as Sisko has just been promoted to captain. Ambassador Krajensky is present at the party, but he hasn't just come to congratulate Sisko. He tells there's been a coup d'état on the Tzenkethi home world. They were once at war with the Federation and Krajensky wants to remind them that Federation is still committed to the protection of the colonies. Sisko takes the Defiant to Tzenkethi space. While working on the ship O'Brien hears some strange sounds. He finds Julian working in a Jefferies tube. Julian claims to have connected a new diagnostic console. Not long after the communications array malfunctions. O'Brien and Dax discover a parasitic tube-like system that is invading the ship's equipment, protected by a forcefield. It's right next to the place where Bashir connected his medical console. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Those Changelings REALLY suck!!!
28 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Commander Sisko has just been promoted to captain (yippee). As his first assignment, he is to take the Defiant to some settlement across space to stop some rebellion. However, partway there, it becomes obvious that the Ambassador is actually a changeling and the entire mission is actually a chance for the Founders to star a huge intergalactic war!! Apparently, humanoid lives mean nothing to these annoying jerks! So, it's up to Sisko and the crew to regain control of their ship AND find the changeling now that he's disappeared into the ship.

This is a very tense episode with lots of surprises and twists. I also appreciated the ending when you see Odo do something you'd never expect! All in all, one of the better episodes--which is true of all the Changeling episodes.

By the way, it was rather funny in a small scene between Captain Sisko and Commander Eddington (the security guy recently assigned to DS9). Eddington wants to become a captain himself but complains that 'no one who wears yellow ever becomes a captain'. What about Kirk?
