Trekathon 490: Behind the Lines (5) (DS9)

September 7th, 2012

The station resistance hits a few snags.

Wow do things get worse here. Rom arrested, Odo (apparently) changing sides to the Founders. It’s really just a fairly standard cliffhanger, but it’s more effective given the buildup. And the buildups of Kira and Odo’s relationship really pays off, as there is a genuine sense of betrayal. But also his actions remain completely understandable. Good writing.

The other part of the episode, Sisko dealing with giving up his command to move to a staff position, is pretty standard stuff. We don’t learn anything particularly about him or anyone else. Really a bit of a waste of time – surely there were more interesting stories for the time available.

490 down, 247 to go.
