Storyline

The joint Romulan and Cardassian fleet approaches the station. Sisko is ready for a fight, but the fleet immediately goes through the wormhole - on their way to destroy the Founders' home planet. Sisko wants to pursue them and defies Starfleet orders to stay back and guard Bajor. Meanwhile on the fleet, Enabram Tain gives Garak his first assignment: interrogate Odo to find out about possible planetary defenses of the Founders. Garak gets a device which prevents changelings from altering their form. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Hutzel was instructed to come up with a way to do the battle scene without going over-budget. His solution was to create transparencies of the models of the Romulan warbirds and the Cardassian ships, and to use those transparencies in the background. Coupled with the fact that they were in the background, Hutzel ensured that the camera never lingered on one of them too long, so as to ensure viewers didn't spot the effect. See more »

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.
