To the Death
Overall Ep :
First Aired :
13 May 1996
Season Ep :
So this Iconian building is made of neutronium? One cubic metre of that stuff weighs umpty-billion tons. The building should sink to the centre of the planet if it is so immensely heavy. Or are there some sort of anti-gravity systems holding it in place?
Great Moment :
Seeing DS9 with a whole pylon blasted off.
Body Count :
Lots! I couldn't keep count, but at least a dozen or so Jem'Hadar, several Starfleet officers, plus Weyoun.
According to the script, when Weyoun claps Odo on the shoulder he is infecting him with the disease that will force his return to the Great Link at the end of the season.
After a Jem'Hadar raid on DS9, Sisko takes the Defiant through to the Gamma Quadrant in persuit - and finds another group of Jem'Hadar chasing his quarry. Apparently those who attacked the station are renegades who are in posession of an Iconian Gateway (see "Contagion", episode 36 tape 19), making them a threat to the Dominion and Federation alike. Sisko and the Jem'Hadar team up for a joint operation to take on the renegades.
