Storyline

Odo has found his home on a rogue planet in the Omarion nebulae. A female shapeshifter tells they were once a race of explorers, that was always rejected by the 'solids', the ordinary human beings. She encourages him to learn about their ways so he will be ready for their manner of bonding via the Great Link. Kira in the meantime tries to send a message to Sisko, but finds out all outgoing frequencies are blocked by a subterranean device. Meanwhile Sisko and Bashir are on a runabout when they are being rescued by Dax and O'Brien. They appear to have made contact with the Founders and convinced them of their peaceful intentions. A grand peace meeting is already scheduled, one of the Founders is already on Deep Space Nine. Sisko starts having doubts about the agreement when he finds out the Romulans are excluded from the negotiations and the Jem'Hadar can do whatever they want on the station.

Goofs

When Bashir is intercepted by Garak upon arriving back at the station, in the background the end of the set can be seen as the walkway and its railing end abruptly. In addition, the whole promenade background seems to be sloping down. This is only partially concealed by the Jem'Hadar standing in front. See more »

Quotes

[Sisko is questioning the decision to exclude the Romulans from the peace talks with the Dominion]
Admiral Alynna Nechayev: Commander, if this treaty is signed, and I'm confident it will be, we'll never have to worry about the Romulans again.
Commander Sisko: Are you sure of that?
Admiral Alynna Nechayev: Quite sure. After all, what chance would they have against the combined power of our new alliance?
Commander Sisko: They wouldn't have much of a chance at all.
Admiral Alynna Nechayev: I'm glad we agree.

Excellent writiging. Plot has a very star trek feel with some strange twists involving Odo. Garek really needs more screentime.
