Sisko takes Quark, Nog and Jake on a trip to the Gamma quadrant where they have their first encounter with the titular soldiers.
I LOVE THIS EPISODE!!!
I have seen it before and I know the significance of what we are seeing. Nevertheless this episode is so fluidly executed it’s just a joy to witness.
Rather than rambling, here is a list of my top 10 favorite things about this episode…
Ketracel White. The drug that the Jem’Hadar is addicted to is never mentioned in this episode yet we see the tube which delivers it into their bloodstream. A perfect example of how the writers are clearly planning ahead.
We see how effing hard it is to fly a Runabout. I’m glad they showed us that moment and spent the money on a good FX shot.
Quark’s whining. An excellent job of providing comic relief without going too far and getting annoying.
The Jem’Hadar themselves. Such an awesome species design. How’d you like to give birth to THAT?
Destruction of the USS Odyssey. Bravo Jem’Hadar. Bravo.
