Sacrifice of Angels
Overall Ep :
First Aired :
3 Nov 1997
Season Ep :
This is going to sound a little heartless... but why does the Klingon fleet help out the Federation forces? The point of the operation is to re-take Deep Space Nine. The whole war depends on that being achieved. With the Dominon forces taking on Starfleet, the Klingons have a free and easy run on the station, yet they choose not to attack it.
Great Moment :
Dukat's crumbling from triumph through defeat and into despair within the space of a few minutes when the Dominion reinforcements fail to come through the wormhole. And Sisko and Martok walking back onto the station!
Body Count :
Several hundred Starfleet ships, several thousand Dominion ships - casualties for this one would be in the hundreds of thousands at least! Also, Damar kills Ziyal and Dukat goes bonkers.
It was something of a topic of conversation amongst fans as to what actually happened to the vanished Dominion fleet. All kinds of fanfic had them appearing in Borg space, going into the past to become the founders of the Dominion, and pretty much everything else you can imagine.
While the Federation and Dominion fleets pound each other mercilessley, Kira and her resistance comrades are placed into custody to prevent sabotage. With the Cardassians on the edge of bringing down the minefield, the fate of the Quadrant may rest in the hands of Quark.
