Storyline

Odo is affected by the disease threatening to eliminate his race more than he lets on, while Kira has to deal with the Cardassians' dislike of her. Even though General Martok sees Chancellor Gowron's move as part of a political vendetta, he does nothing about it. Worf suspects Gowron's military strategies are meant to humiliate Martok's command abilities, without thought the consequences have for Klingons as a whole. Meanwhile, O'Brien suggests to Bashir he announce he's found a cure to the Changelings' disease to lure someone from Section 31 to DS9. Written by Moviedude1

Quotes

[Damar's family has been killed]
Damar: To kill her and my son - the casual brutality of it, the waste of life... What kind of state tolerates the murder of innocent women and children? What kind of people give those orders?
Colonel Kira: Yeah, Damar, what kind of people give those orders...?

Setting It All Up
12 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are some excellent plot developments. The first among these is Kira being sent behind enemy linces to aid the Cardassians in fighting off the Breen. She must deal with an angry Cardassian who can't assimilate the greater needs. We have Odo contracting the horrible disease that is doing in the Dominion. And there is a need to remove Gowron from head of the Klingon Empire. He is making decisions that will destroy any chance of success.
