One of my favorite episodes
22 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always loved Weyoun's character. This episode is perfect for anyone who also enjoys him. The story begins with Odo informing Kyra that he received a message from a Cardassian informant that was believed to have been executed. Odo takes a runabout to the planet he was told to meet his informant friend but instead, Weyoun is there waiting for him. Weyoun tells Odo that he no longer considers himself part of the Dominion and wishes to defect. Odo becomes irritated how much Weyoun worships him even though that's how the Vorta were programmed. On their way back to DS9, they are contacted by Damar and the new Weyoun clone and tells the other Weyoun to either surrender or kill himself. Damar wants the runabout destroyed but new Weyoun is hesitant because Odo is still considered a Founder despite the fact that Odo is essentially neutral. Damar eventually talks Weyoun into having the runabout destroyed and just not telling the Founder that Odo was on board. Sadly, the defecting Weyoun ends up activating his termination program in order to save Odo. I just didn't understand why Weyoun didn't fake his own death but that would have taken away the moment where we see just how much the Vorta look up to the Founders. He knew Odo didn't want to be looked at as a God but his dying wish was to receive Odo's blessing. The other plot line in this episode is that Chief O'Brien is ordered by Captain Sisko to fix the Defiant in a few days with a part that isn't on DS9. Nog helps O'Brien by doing trade after trade after trade to get the stabilizer. Things start disappearing on the ship like Sisko's desk and Martok's cases of blood wine that his wife sent him. It's discovered that Nog used O'Briens authorization code to make those deals. Just when things seem bleak for him, the Captain's desk is returned on time, Martok ends up getting cases of blood wine that are better quality than the ones his wife sent, and the stabilizer arrives in time for O'Brien to install it. Great episode.
