More of the same.
28 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Towards the end of the run of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", instead of the usual self-contained or occasional two-part episodes, the series instead became one enormous ongoing plot. In effect, the last 10 or so episodes of the show were more like a gigantic movie or soap opera. This isn't so much a complaint--more an observation about the style of the programs. Because of this, it's rather difficult to rate or review these shows.

As in previous episodes, the main plots involve the Kai and her descent into serving evil, the Cardassians separating themselves from the Dominion as well as the folks on DS9--who take a back seat in most of the episodes.

The Kai is determined to read the forbidden texts. They are forbidden because they are evil and tell of the power of the Pah- Wraiths. This causes problems with her people--and she no longer seems to care. But when her assistant tells her that her new lover isn't actually a Bajoran but a Cardassian, she has one more chance to back down and abandon her evil ways. Being truly nasty and vicious, watching her choice is amazingly satisfying!

The Cardassians are planning a revolt...and it comes just in time. This is because with the Breen's assistance, the Dominion regained the offensive in the war. Exactly what happens to Sisko and his ship, the Defiant, is something you'll just have to see for yourself.

Like in all the episodes, this one is exciting, tense and one you should see as a whole.
