Did You Know?


Based on averaging the differences of the stardates from "Children of Time" and "Empok Nor", the initial events of Star Trek: First Contact should have occurred between this episode and the next, "Empok Nor". However, Sisko's mention of "the recent Borg attack" in "In Purgatory's Shadow" actually places First Contact before that episode. See more »


Kira and Odo appear to get along quite well, especially at 12:15 when they report on Morn's arrest while Dr. Bashir mends an assaulted Quark. They stand close and don't seem at all uncomfortable, even after their recent falling out in the previous episode Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Children Of Time. Yet not long after there is a plot explicitly about how they haven't been getting along, in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Call To Arms--which takes place a month after "Children of Time," according to Kira. Here Kira and Odo are noticeably cold toward one another and Kira explains to Dax that this has been a problem since she learned of Odo's romantic feelings. See more »


Michael Eddington: [Sisko and Eddington have reached the Maquis Command Center] Come on, it looks clear.
Captain Sisko: Wait.
[He sweeps the room with phaser rifle fire - and hits two cloaked Jem'Hadar warriors waiting in ambush]
Michael Eddington: I'm glad one of us remembered they can do that.

Fun But Really Hard to Accept as Realistic
1 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This involves a message from deep space that indicates a missile attack by the Maquis could bring about the deaths of millions. Eddington is in the station's brig and is brought out by Benjamin to assist him in stopping the missile attack. The two of them parry and thrust as they head toward the war zone, encountering the Jem'Hadar. There are some surprises ultimately. In many respects, Sisko is a lesser man than Eddington and much of what the supposed traitor says is quite true.
