Why exactly does the female Founder have that smooth, Odo-looking face? We know she can imitate Humanoids perfectly if she wants to, after all. Maybe she does it to make Odo feel more comfortable, but in that case why are her hands perfect copies of a Human's complete with all the wrinkles, etc?
Great Moment :
It's a small thing, but I love the scene where Sisko and Bashir are waiting on a tiny rock island in the middle of the great link. The way Bashir goes to skim a rock across the surface of the great link without thinking about what he's doing, with Sisko's shocked "Doctor!" and Bashir's abashed "Ohhhh." It just cracks me up every time.
In this episode we see the Founder's new homeworld, after their old one was largely destroyed in The Die is Cast.
When Odo develops a mysterious illness, Sisko takes him to the Gamma Quadrant in the Defiant to seek the help of the Founders. It transpires that Odo was deliberately infected by the Dominion to bring him home so that he could face judgement for kiling another Founder.
