Storyline

Kai Opaka, the spiritual leader of the Bajorans announces a visit to DS9. She doesn't say much, but makes it implicitly clear she's interested in the wormhole. Sisko, Bashir, Kira take a runabout to show her the wormhole and pass through it to the other side. They receive a strange distress call coming from an unknown source. Sisko wants to return home, but Opaka tells him they should not take notice of her. The signal leads to a mysterious satellite network, which releases an energy burst, disabling the runabout. They make a violent crash-down on a moon, where Opaka dies almost instantly. It isn't long before the surviving 3 are picked up by a group of unfriendly locals, the Ennis. They say they are put as prisoners on the moon after a long war with the Nol-Ennis, a war ehich is continued on the moon. When the Nol attack, something strange happens.

Wonderful Philosophy

Great idea. Done decently. This is one of the reasons why we watch 1990 TV on Netflix and Amazon prime.
