The wounded Sisko is attended to by multiple EMHs. He is informed by Admiral Sato that the situation has grown worse and the Cardassians are massing a fleet to deal with the Tzenkethi. The Theseus leaves to meet the Cardassian fleet and Sisko puts First Speaker Daman on notice. Meanwhile, Scotty and Dr. Crusher explore beneath the surface of the planet. They determine the Tzenkethi homeworld will soon explode.
The Scotty and Crusher subplot feels like an afterthought here. And as important as the revelation is, it shouldn't be. The scenes between Harry and Ensign Sato feel a bit forced. And once again Harry reminds us he was an Ensign for seven years. Once was enough.
seven out of ten.
