YATI : Why did Worf ever try to fight the Lakota? I mean, he had all the time in the world to cloak the Defiant as they approached one another. He could then easily have slipped past and gone on to Earth, which after all was his mission.
Great Moment : Admiral Leyton's gradual slipping into ranting and raving as Sisko points out the stupidity of his plans.
Body Count : Two dead on the Defiant, Bartlett and Ramsey, plus seven seriously injured. Up to twenty four were reported as casualties from the Lakota, but no word on which were deaths and which injuries.
Factoid : Ironically, on Babylon 5 Robert Foxworth also played a senior military officer who was planning to rebel against his own government, though in that show the rebellion was in fact justified. In fact Foxworth passed on a further episode of B5 in which the actual rebellion happened so that he could do this one instead.

Plotline

Sisko begins to suspect that the Founders may not be behind the sabotage taking place on Earth. The actual threat proves to be far closer to home - and far more sinister. As the Defiant, with Worf in command, rushes to Earth to help, she finds herself faced with a difficult dilemma - surrender, or fire on another Federation starship.
