Captain Sisko: Captain's log, stardate 51408.6. I've been aboard the Honshu for two days now, and I still haven't spoken to him, although the doctors have assured me that he's made a full recovery. Maybe that's what I'm afraid of. Maybe I prefer to think of him as a crazy man, a broken man. He'd be less dangerous that way. As terrible as it sounds, there's a part of me that wishes he were dead.

Extremely talky....and over the course of the show, a bit tedious.
18 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The beginning of this episode finds Captain Sisko on a ship that is holding the prisoner, Gul Dukat. Soon, however, the ship is attacked and Sisko awakens to find himself in a cave with Dukat. It seems that they managed to somehow escape and are hiding on a very inhospitable planet. Sisko is injured and dependent on his 'host'. This is bad enough since Dukat is a mass-murderer and war criminal. However, it becomes clear that there's much more to it--Dukat has lost his mind and is seeing and hearing people that simply aren't there. It also eventually becomes clear that unless Sisko escapes that Dukat might kill him, as he's obviously impaired and really, really flaky.

The biggest problem with this one is that too much time is spend with this pair. They talk, talk, talk and after a while it really drags down the episode. While not a terrible episode, it's certainly one you'll wish was shorter!
