||It seems to be getting grimmer by the week. We see yet another good portrayal of the hardest part on any war, before you can turn it around. Odo seems to be having a very curious experience, and he's becoming almost as otherworldly as the other Changeling. Very curious. However, I found myself thinking that I wish we had seen the Defiant's dramatic and exciting mission, not just the ship arriving home. That's probably something like what Sisko thought as well, and no-doubt every captain who watches his old ship going into harm's way. Still, maybe this is the reason why I am not so keen on DS9, it sometimes skips over the action and the tension if favour of something otherworldly and character-building. Verdict, watchable in its own way, but not a thriller.
