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.

Stranded with ones enemy!
9 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While Sisko escorting Dakat for a hearing into his crimes their ship comes under attack. Sisko is wounded but Dukat saves his life and gets him to a shuttle and down to a nearby planet. It appears that Dukat has told Sisko some untruths about their situation when we see him talking to Weyoun however it soon becomes clear that Weyoun is just an hallucination. Weyoun isn't the only person he sees Damar also appears to him and encourages him to kill Sisko. While the two of them talk the crew of DS9 search for them although their time is limited as they must leave the search to escort a troop transport very soon.

While not an action packed episode it was interesting to see Sisko and Dukat interact as their situations are reversed; Marc Alaimo and Avery Brooks put in good performances in what was effectively a two-hander, Marc Alaimo was especially good as he got more and more insane and eventually ended up raving like a mad man. It was a nice touch when just as we think they have been found it turns out the Defiant has just found two other survivors on a different planet. Of course by the end Sisko was rescued but it was a nice surprise that Dukat escaped; he is too good a villain to remain in captivity.
