Following the fifth convoy of Dominion ships headed for Bajor in as many weeks, Sisko decides to mine the wormhole to prevent any more reinforcements. Gul Dukat and Weyoun respond by sending an assault fleet, launching the first offensive of the Dominion War...
The Star Trek you grew up with is no more. The idealistic future that has slowly been sanded back to reveal several shades of grey over the last three years is no more... now there is open conflict and death and destruction and it is good. I much prefer realism in my television and this is real, not everyone is going to get along in the big wide galaxy.

Meanwhile, Kira and Odo confront their feelings which were first revealed in an earlier episode, Bajor ally with the Dominion in a non aggression pact and Rom and Leeta marry.
