Did You Know?


The starship Defiant is destroyed in this episode. The producers opted for such a radical act because they wanted to convey to the audience the real threat of the Breen. See more »

Cardassia changes sides
25 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Things are looking bad for the Federation; first the Breen lead an audacious raid to the heart of Federation territory and attacked Star Fleet headquarters in San Francisco and then they drive Star Fleet from their only base inside Dominion territory. This latter attack has a greater effect on Sisko and the people of DS9 as they were lucky to survive the battle when the Defiant is destroyed after being hit by a Breen weapon that shut down all of its systems. Back on Bajor Kai Winn has gone over to the side of the Pah-wraiths and asks to see the ancient texts concerning them against the advice of her assistant Solbor, he believes that she is being led astray by her new friend Anjohl Tennan and looks into his true identity; when he tells the Kai that he has discovered her new friend is in fact Dukat she takes drastic action to protect his identity. There is at least some good news for the Federation Legate Damar has had enough of the Dominion's treatment of Cardassia and announces that the Cardassians are to rise up and overthrow their oppressors, their first action is to destroy the Vorta cloning facility, something which rather disturbs Weyoun.

This was another good episode which doesn't concentrate one any one character or even a single group of characters. By this point in the series each episode is part of the main story arc so one really needs to have been watching for a while to enjoy it, there is little point just dipping in and watching a single episode.
