Trekathon 572: Strange Bedfellows (3) (DS9)

November 28th, 2012

Sisko gets used to married life, Ezri and Worf get sentenced to Death, Damar gets sick of his deal with the devil, Kai Winn has a crisis of faith, and the Breen ally with the Dominion.

Or, to put it another way, all of the plots move forward again a little bit. It’s pretty hard to describe the plot of the episode succinctly – this is a step on the path, not a story on its own. Fortunately all of the stories are working well, unlike the previous serial story at the start of Season 6, which had some distinctly dodgy parts.

Weyoun should really give some serious thought to ‘if you undermine subordinates, they tend to betray you’. It would be fair to call Damar’s betrayal ‘inevitable’ now.

(As an aside – the Breen look a lot like they should be threatening Jabba with a thermal detonator. And it does bug me that the major threat is a race only mentioned in about four previous episodes out of 571…)

572 down, 165 to go.
