Storyline

The crew of the station is preparing for the expected attack of the Jem'Hadar, but the prognoses are not looking good. Within two hours the station will be taken over. Suddenly a cloaked ship is detected very close to the station. They are being hailed by captain Sisko. He's on board of the Defiant, a prototype of a new class of starships, a warship specifically designed to fight the Borg. The ship is flawed, but equipped with cloaking technology borrowed from the Romulans. Sisko and Starfleet's idea is not to wait for the Jem'Hadar to attack, but to penetrate into the Dominion's territory to try to found the Founders and try to solve matters the diplomatic way.

Thems a lot 'o changes....
19 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

With the final episode of the previous season, the Federation came into contact with the Dominion's soldiers, the Jem'Hadar. These super-soldiers are insanely powerful, 100% dedicated to their masters and see humans as worthless maggots. And, in battle, the Jem'Hadar seriously kicked the Federation's butts! So, when season three begins, there are some big changes in store in order to meet this awful threat.

Commander Sisko is away doing briefings with Starfleet. When he returns, he has a HUGE surprise for everyone...a new ship! The USS Defiant is a very small but insanely powerful ship designed to meet the threat of the Borg. But, now that the Borg threat seems to have gone, it's to be based at Deep Space 9 in order to help protect it. But the biggest surprise is that this super-ship has a cloaking device--and a Romulan officer to serve on her!! Obviously the Romulans now consider the Dominion to be a greater threat than the Federation. Plus, over the last few seasons of "Star Trek: The Next Generation", the Federation has done a lot to improve relationships with their old enemies.

This two-part episode concerns the Defiant's first mission into the Gamma Quadrant. The plan is to sneak through the wormhole and take the attack to the Jem'Hadar and hopefully find their masters, the Founders--who are the real force behind the Dominion. Unfortunately, the ship, though powerful, fairs VERY poorly and Odo and Kira escape in a pod...seemingly before the ship is destroyed.

Chock full of excitement and violent--that's what I like in this series. While it took a long time to happen,...it's here! Well worth seeing.
