Sisko and Garak face the firing squad but the soldiers turn their weapons into the crowd, killing Damar's enemies. as the Red Path bears down on Crusher and her group, Sisko arrives just in time to save them. Sisko spies the Vorta head off and investigates. he opens a canister that contains a Founder. instead of embracing it, Vorta kills the Founder. later, the Theseus returns to DS9 where the Orb is analyzed by various teams.
The conclusion of the 'Trial' arc was good. and a very Cardassian conclusion at that. i do wish the Vorta's motives were a bit more tangible. unleashing a captive Founder only to kill it is an interesting twist, and goes to show how some have changed after the war. but it also feels somewhat disjointed.
