Storyline

Odo is affected by the disease threatening to eliminate his race more than he lets on, while Kira has to deal with the Cardassians' dislike of her. Even though General Martok sees Chancellor Gowron's move as part of a political vendetta, he does nothing about it. Worf suspects Gowron's military strategies are meant to humiliate Martok's command abilities, without thought the consequences have for Klingons as a whole. Meanwhile, O'Brien suggests to Bashir he announce he's found a cure to the Changelings' disease to lure someone from Section 31 to DS9. Written by Moviedude1

Trivia

The words regarding power being thrust upon the worthy, ascribed to Kahless, are a paraphrase from the William Shakespeare play Twelfth Night (act II, scene 5), where the comic character Malvolio reads in a letter (sent to him in order to mock him): "...be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them."

Behind enemy lines
27 January 2010 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

After several episodes which gives several plot threads roughly equal time this one has one primary story and a couple of secondary plots. The main plot involves Kira, Odo, Garak and members of the Cardassian resistance going on a mission deep in to Dominion territory to steal a Jem'Hadar ship which has recently had Breen weaponry installed. Everything goes according to plan until they take over the bridge of the ship, then they learn the weapons upgrade is behind schedule and they must wait an hour hoping that nobody will come to the bridge in that time. During that time tempers fray and Rusot threatens to kill Col. Kira. While this is going on things are not looking good for Odo, his illness is getting worse and changing shape does not help.

Back on DS9 Dr Bashir is having no luck finding a cure to Odo's illness but Chief O'Brien come up with a plan that may lead them to getting the information they need off Section 31. After a military disaster Gowron blames Martok even though it was his own planning to blame. After this failure he orders an even more foolhardy mission which leads to Worf confronting the Chancellor.

This was a good tense episode with sufficient action including a duel between Klingons and a Mexican standoff aboard the captured Jem'Hadar ship. It also sees the end of a couple of secondary characters.
