The Maquis, Part 2

So yesterday I mentioned that the Star Trek posts would be fewer and far between, well how big of an idiot am I? I forgot that I can simply run at the gym and watch Star Trek on my iPad, so that is what I did today. I ran three miles today as my first day of training for the Goldy’s Run.

The Maquis, Part 2
Sisko, Kira and Bashir are on the surface of an M class asteroid and have been taken hostage by the Maquis, lead by Commander Hudson. Hudson and Sisko have a long conversation about how Starfleet and Federation have turned their back on the colonies and that they need to take matters into their own hands. The three are allowed to go back to the station where Sisko is immediately confronted by Admiral Nechayev. She demands that Sisko take care of the situation and get in touch with the Maquis and come to some type of peace agreement. He is then spoken to by Legate Parn, a high leader in the Cardassian government. Parn reveals that Gul Dukat is responsible for the arms deliveries to the Cardassians and that the central command is happy to see him dead either by the Maquis or by their own hands. Sisko mounts a rescue mission for Gul Dukat which succeeds and they also begin to track the arms deliveries. Sisko and Dukat indeed determine that the Cardassians are arming their colonists. Sisko learns of a plot from the Maquis to destroy a weapons bunker on a Cardassian colony. He and the rest of the core DS9 crew head out in runabouts to prevent the attack and are eventually successful in stopping the attack. In the end Sisko feels that he just delayed the inevitable and that  war in the demilitarized zone is still lurking in the future.
