Trivia

This is Jeffrey Combs' (Weyoun) favourite episode. He enjoyed having to play two completely different Weyouns. One who is loyal to the Dominion. And one who is considered defective because he sees things as they really are. See more »

Goofs

Odo should not be affected by the cold or lack of air as he has no metabolism that would need oxygen as a fuel and temperature as a catalyst. Additionally, other episodes have shown Changelings are capable of surviving in the vacuum of space. See more »

A Vorta who wishes to defect?!
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot to this episode is very surprising. After all, the Vorta are slavishly devoted to their gods, the Founders. However, oddly, one of the Vorta, Weyoun 6, has defected--something you'd never expect from these sycophants. When Odo meets him, the Vorta begs to be given sanctuary--and the rest of the episode is a rush back to Federation space with this strange Vorta. But why? Why defect? And, what secret does he hold about his beloved Founders--one that other Vorta don't even expect?!

In addition to this main plot, there is a minor plot. When Captain Sisko demands that O'Brien does the impossible, Nog intervenes and through a long series of trades, arranges to have spare parts available to O'Brien so that he won't disappoint his commander.

The plot involving Nog and O'Brien is very slight. However I really liked the one involving the Vorta and you learn a lot about them and what makes Weyoun 6 different. A truly interesting episode.
