YATI : Given the way everybody was going around firing huge phaser blasts all over the place, I'm surprised they didn't shoot each other. After all, it's not like anybody ever made any attempt to find out if there was anybody ahead of them.

I'm not sure I agree with Sisko's "we go in pairs" idea. I mean, doesn't it guarantee that at least one person is alone with the Founder? Whereas if they went in threes the Founder is sure to be outnumbered, which would at least give the solids a bit of a chance.

Factoid : This episode marks the introduction of the Tzenkethi, one of those species often mentioned but never seen.
Quote : "He said 'you're too late. We're everywhere.'" - Odo to Sisko; on the Founder's last words

Plotline

When the newly promoted Captain Sisko is assigned a mission to stage a show of force near Tzenkethi space, he soon finds that a Founder has stowed away and sabotaged the ship. With the Defiant locked on a course directly into Tzenkethi space, Sisko must regain control - or destroy the ship.
