Storyline

The joint Romulan and Cardassian fleet approaches the station. Sisko is ready for a fight, but the fleet immediately goes through the wormhole. They are on their way to destroy the Founders' home planet. Sisko wants to pursue them to find the captured Odo, but Starfleet Command has different plans. Admiral Toddman orders the Defiant to stay back and guard Bajor. Sisko is not amused and defies the admiral's orders. Meanwhile on the fleet Enabram Tain gives Garak his first assignment: he must interrogate Odo to find out about possible planetary defenses of the Founders. Garak gets a device that emits a quantum stasis field. It was designed by the Obsidian Order to prevent changelings from altering their form. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Major Kira: Commander, there's an incoming priority message from Starfleet Command. It's Admiral Toddman. He's repeating his order not to enter the Gamma Quadrant.
Commander Sisko: That's what you think it says. How can we be sure when a transmission is as badly garbled as that one?
Major Kira: ...You're right. There's an awful lot of subspace interference on this channel. Must be an ion storm or something.
Commander Sisko: Must be.

A follow-up to the prior episode...
26 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

At the end of the last episode, Garak rejoined his old 'friend', Tain, with the Obsidian Order. Now, at least, the audience knows exactly who Garak was--and they learn his real name as well as his old status as the #2 man of the Order. In addition, the Order is able to take Odo custody--and they want to cross-examine him to learn more about their enemy, the Founders. Why do they need this information? Because some rogue Cardassians and Romulans are planning on attacking the Founders and, hopefully, ending any threat to their empires.

When the show begins, Tain pushes Garak to interrogate Odo--though Odo is less than helpful. Additionally, though the Federation is against the attack on the Founders in principle, they have a wait and see attitude--and order the Commander to stay put. Naturally, however, the Commander chooses to ignore this and he proceeds into the Gamma Quadrant with his ship, the Defiant.

This is an action-packed episode--with lots of explosions, bravery and betrayals. I like this sort of episode--especially since "Deep Space 9" was so often cerebral. Well worth seeing--and a shade of evil Founders action to come.
