Goofs

When O'Brien delivers the depleted power cell from the phaser array to the gathering of the crew he struggles with its weight. But when he passes it to Dax and she gives her speech, she doesn't struggle, but handles it as if it had hardly any weight at all. Also, when Dax puts the cell on the rack with the others, one of the cells it touches moves too much for something that is supposed to be quite heavy. See more »

Gee, thanks Odo!
20 January 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Captain Sisko has been promoted to a new position off the station, so when it comes to a secret mission, it's up to Dax to command the Defiant. They are out to destroy a sensor array put up by the Dominion that allows them to see the cloaked ships in the Alpha Quadrant.

The other plot involves the Bajorans. It seems that they have a plan to poison the Ketracel that is needed by the Jem'Hadar. But it needs help--and Odo is supposed to be helping. The problem is that another shapeshifter arrives on the station and Odo is too busy joining with this being than with fulfilling his responsibilities to his comrades. Yes, for once, Odo is a selfish jerk--uncharacteristically so. Fortunately, aside form this huge problem with the plot, the rest of the show is absolutely great--and well worth seeing.
