In memory of Gregg Duffy Long and Ronald W. Smith.
Following Odo's warning that the Changling's are 'everywhere' tensions continue to mount in the Alpha Quadrant. The Cardassians seal their border and the Klingons send a taskforce to Deep Space Nine to help protect the Wormhole. Unsure of their true motivations, Sisko recruits Worf to uncover their true motive...
This is how you start a season, with a big bang and lots of character exposition! Now, while the battle scenes were awesome and easily the best (and most detailed) we've seen to date in the series, I think the title for best scene this episode has to go to Quark and Garak discussing their problems in the bar... comparing the Federation to Root Beer, bright and bubbly - but it eventually grows on you, can they save them?

Bashir and Odo discussing the boarding parties gave them a moment of mutual respect and then Garak goes to defend the Council members, fighting side-by-side with Dukat. This was easily the most 'advancing' episode for characters and the overall series plot.

As a result of the amazing battle scenes, I've created a new section to the screen caps... detailing them in a special section below.
