Trivia

The writers chose Nog, Quark, Bashir and Ezri to carry the story because they had next to no fighting experience. Unlike Kira, Worf and O'Brien, who had all been in battle and knew how to handle themselves in a fight. The writers were keen to see the reactions of people who didn't know how to handle themselves in a fight. See more »

Goofs

When Worf contacts Sisko from the Defiant the communications chirp is from Deep Space Nine's communication system and not a Starfleet system. See more »

Quotes

Larkin: Sir, what're your orders?
Captain Sisko: There's only one order, Lieutenant. We hold.

The Real War
10 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Several crew members, including Quark, bring supplies to a planet where a communications center of the Dominion exists. One third of the original soldiers are still alive and have been battling for nine months. Sisko and his men and women decide to stay rather than save themselves. This is a gutsy war episode with all the dirtiness as they try to annihilate two columns of Jed'Hadar. One interesting character is a guy played by Bill Mumy, who was Will Robinson in Lost in Space.
