As losses continue to mount for the Allies in the Dominion War, Sisko embarks on a morally corrupt mission to convince the Romulans to join them in the fight...
Easily the episode of the season, as awesome as it is unique to the franchise... Sisko narrates a log entry to us, the viewer, from his quarters. He grapples with what he has done, what he has orchestrated - something he has always despised in others.

But in this case, I think the ends do indeed justify the means... so what that a few Romulans died in that shuttle, or that holoprogram designer was killed because he knew too much. Those lives were sacrificed in order to save millions, if not billions, of lives.
