The arrival of the USS Defiant, 6 April 2010
Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Series Three of Deep Space Nine opens a few months after the last series ended; most of the senior staff are discussing what they can do to counter the Jem'Hadar threat to the station. None of the options look very promising and to make matters worse a cloaked ship is detected very close to the station. As Major Kira takes the station to red alert the ship decloaks to reveal itself as the USS Defiant, a new Star Fleet warship captained by Commander Sisko. Sisko wastes little time before taking the Defiant through the worm hole to seek out the mysterious and possibly mythical Founders. Talks with aliens Quark has done business with leads them to a relay station. Shortly after finding after learning where the station sends its messages a shield activates and captures O'Brien and Dax. The mission is so important that Sisko abandons them, heading onto the coordinates they found, unfortunately here they are intercepted by the Jem'Hadar despite being protected by a Romulan cloak. As the Jem'Hadar board the Defiant Odo escapes in a shuttle with an injured Major Kira and heads to the Omarion Nebula, somewhere he felt drawn to ever since shown it on charts earlier in the episode. Here they find a planet on which there is a strange lake, a lake made up entirely of beings like Odo.

This episode was a good introduction to the series and a great introduction for the Defiant even though as the episode ends it looks as if the ship might be lost before the mission is over. It was also nice to finally meet Odo's species even though we learn nothing about them at the conclusion of the first part of this two part story. With Dax and O'Brien left at the relay station and the Defiant boarded by the Jem'Hadar I can't wait to see the next episode to learn how the crew extricate themselves from the situation.
