Trekathon 576: When It Rains… (5) (DS9)

Part 5 of 10. The Defiant has been blown up, Earth attacked, and a Cardassian revolt has started.

I’m starting to feel like they might be starting to throw too many balls in the air. This episode adds internal conflict within the Klingon side, tensions over Kira as an advisor to the Cardassians, and some internal conflict within the Federation over the Founders disease. There are only five episodes left, time to start resolving this stuff rather than throwing new things in now.

And can we put the Ezri/Bashir plot out of its misery now? I hate plots based on the idea that the people involved are idiots who can’t talk to each other. Or, in this instance, finish a sentence.

576 down, 161 to go.
