Storyline

Odo gets a visit from Dr. Mora Pol, the scientist who researched him in a laboratory on Bajor. Mora still seems to be unhappy with Odo's decision to leave for Deep Space Nine and Odo is still not happy with the way the scientist treated him. Mora gets him interested to resume work on finding his origins when he tells him a Bajoran science probe recently scanned a planet in the Gamma Quadrant and found DNA patterns looking just like Odo's. Sisko agrees to let Odo, Mora, Dax and the Bajoran doctor Weld take a runabout. On the planet they find a mysterious pillar and Dr. Weld finds the life-form the team is looking for. They decide to beam the pillar and the life-form on board and take them to DS9. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Goofs

The runabout crew all beam down to the planet and leave the ship in orbit. This is a risky manoeuver. They should have left one person aboard to monitor their wellbeing. See more »

Odo Again Needs to Find His Heritage
6 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The man who found Odo on Bajor is filled with giddiness over the possibility that there is another such creature in the Gamma Quadrant. After an away team is assaulted by something, they barely make it back to the station. What happens next is the introduction of a threatening, amorphous thing that tests Odo. While the scientist is almost obsessed there are lessons to be learned. Decent episode.
