Storyline

Minister Jaro has replaced Kira by Li Nalas and is surprised Sisko is not too happy about it. He tells him the main reason for putting the war hero on the station is his security since the unrest on Bajor is escalating. While Kira's friends from the station say goodbye, she gets a sudden visit from Vedek Bareil. He invites her to the Vedek monastery and Kira accepts it. Soon she finds out this life is nothing for her, she's getting restless. Then Bareil shows her the monastery is in possession of one the Orbs of the Prophets. Meanwhile Quark has some important information for Odo. He has heard the Kressari, normally botanical DNA traders, have been supplying weapons to The Circle. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

The annoying Bajoran saga, part two.
16 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode in a three-part series about the Bajorans and their power struggles. It is also the first three-part series in Trek history.

When the show begins, Major Kira is spending time with Vedek Bareil. She hates meditating and he introduces her to the 'third orb' and she has some goofy visions. Then, the scene switches back to DS9 and Quark, oddly, is quite helpful in uncovering a plot by someone to arm Bajoran dissidents and help perpetuate chaos on Bajor--and considering how annoying and unlikable the Bajorans generally are on the show, this will NOT be hard to do! When the action (such as it is) switches back to Bajor, Kira learns who is behind some of the plotting against the provisional government (hint: he has a really cool voice).

Overall, while I did dislike the Bajorans (as usual), it was a better episode than episode two--mostly because the Commander and his Starfleet staff began to behave sneaky and proactive. Interesting and it does start to get interesting here...that is apart from the silly religious visions at the beginning of the show.
