Storyline

The Cardassian freighter Bok'Nor is blown up while leaving Deep Space Nine. It doesn't look like an accident. While both the Federation and Bajor expect retaliation by the Cardassians, they haven't even made contact. Then Commander Calvin Hudson arrives to discuss the tense situation. He is attaché to the Federation colonies in the Demilitarised Zone and a good friend of Sisko. Hudson tries to convince Sisko giving away territory to the Cardassians was a bad idea and that the Federation colonists on the Cardassian side are abandoned. Sisko still believes the treaty was a reasonable compromise. When he returns to his quarters, he is surprised to find Gul Dukat. Gul Dukat tells Federation citizens were responsible for the attack and wants to show him something in the Demilitarised Zone. After arriving the two receive a distress call from a Federation merchant vessel under attack by Cardassians. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The reference to the Bad Lands and losing ships on the Runnabout is a precursor to Star Trek: Voyager which premiered a year later. Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant for 7 years after being lost in the Bad Lands. See more »

Quotes

[Dukat is pointing out to Sisko that his controls in the runabout are not illuminated]
Gul Dukat: Commander, I'm not going to sit here and steal your little technical secrets, I promise you.
Commander Sisko: I appreciate your assurances, but Cardassians are famous for their photographic memories.
Gul Dukat: Oh, so you turn off my controls so I don't have enough light to take my photograph, is that it?

The Maquis is tired of the Federation being so passive....and so am I!
19 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This two-part episode marks a radical departure for this series. Usually, the shows are very cerebral and subdued, however, here we have shows that are violent and full of intrigue...yippee!!

The episode concerns a new rebel group called the Maquis. These folks hate and distrust the Cardassians and instead of making peace with them (which is the boring Federation way), they are in favor of confrontation and attack. Naturally, the Cardassians are not happy about the Maquis and their attacks but they don't complain too loudly. Why? Because through the course of these two episodes, it turns out that the Maquis is generally right--the Cardassians are lying scum who cannot be trusted. But Sisko and his crew are very duty-bound and don't quite know what to do--to side with their friends (with the Maquis) or the Federation? This one ends with Sisko and others being captured by the Maquis.

Exciting and a nice change of pace--this on is worth seeing.
