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

This episode was the first with Ira Steven Behr as Executive Producer. One of the major changes he made to the series was in action sequences, specifically space battles, had to be shown on-screen more often and not just referred to, as TNG had repeatedly done. As the episode budget of DS9 shows could now accommodate more extensive battle sequences than TNG could do during its series run, starship fights became more commonplace in later seasons - especially during major Dominion War episodes. This particular episode marks the first signs of this change, as it features the biggest on-screen battle in Star Trek history up to that point (the Battle of the Omarion Nebula). See more
