The Trekzone Review

Our first major battle scenes of Deep Space Nine occur in this episode and many of the crews are captured and sent to prison camps which we’ll visit later on in the series. Lieutenant Eddington returns in this episode too, wherever he’s been hiding since The Search…

Garak continues to expand his character in this episode, his subterfuge seems to have been influenced by the three years he’s spent on Deep Space Nine. In terms of production purposes, this episode marks a turning point – with Ira Behr on board now we get to see battles, lots of battles!
