Season two of Star Trek Deep Space Nine has come to an end and now Dominion War story really kicks into gear. This week has been long but that is Ok, I am now looking forward to having a relaxing weekend.
Jake, Nog, Sisko and Quark are going on an adventure in the Gamma Quadrant to complete a science experiment for Mrs. O’Brien’s class. At first it was to be just the Sisko’s but the two Ferengi are invited along in the end even in Commander Sisko is hesitant. On the planet Quark is a pain in the ass and hates practically everything about nature while everyone else seems to love the whole experience. The trip is cut short when Sisko and Quark run into an alien and are then captured by a few Jem’Hadar soliders. The Jem’Hadar soldiers reveal themselves to be the soldier force behind the Dominion, which is the major source of power in the Gamma Quadrant. The other alien is named Eris, a woman whose planet was overtaken by the Dominion and now she is on the run. The three attempt an escape but at first it is no good so they go back to the drawing board. Meanwhile Jake and Nog have made it back to the runabout but are stuck in orbit and can’t get back to DS9. Around this time a Jem’Hadar ship comes through the wormhole and threatens the whole Alpha Quadrant with reprisals if they continue to violate Dominion space. They also promise to make an example of Commander Sisko. A Federation ship and the runabouts mount a rescue mission and they are successful until the Jem’Hadar attack. Everyone makes it out alive but the Jem’Hadar decide to do a suicide run on the galaxy class ship just to give an example of the type of warriors they truly are. Back on the station Sisko grows suspicious of Eris and she soon reveals that she is a member of the Dominion and that this whole thing has been an elaborate plot to learn more about the Federation. She also warns that “they are everywhere” implying that there are Dominion spies in the Alpha Quadrant. And that is how season 2 comes to a close.
