Storyline

Spiritualists on Bajor summon Captain Sisko to the planet surface, where they show him a stone tablet with some unknown inscriptions. Once on DS9, the inscription reveals an ancient prophecy of coming disasters surrounding the wormhole, Bajor, and DS9, as those around him voice their uneasiness about Sisko being an Emissary for the planet.

Quotes

Major Kira: [to Sisko] The Kai has always been the spiritual leader of Bajor. But Winn has to share that role with you. And to make matters worse - you're an outsider, a non-Bajoran. That's something she can never forgive you for.

I liked this one.
23 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Some of the episodes involving the so-called 'Prophets' are annoying--such as the ones where Sisko has visions of all his friends and family with them talking with the voices of the Prophets. This one is a bit different and it further illustrates what a giant butt-head Kai Winn is.

When the show begins, Sisko is on Bajor when he feels the urge to take an ancient holy relic with him back to DS9. You assume the Prophets planted this urge in him. Not too surprisingly, Kai Winn is unhappy and lodges a formal protest. Imagine, then, her reaction when once again the Prophets tell Sisko to do something...SMASH the relic! What's next (other than Winn blowing a gasket?!)?

This episode is a good prelude to the crazy stuff that ends the series a year later. The religious angle obviously annoyed some folks (read through the reviews for this episode and you'll get some idea of this) but I liked it, as it was very different.
