Episode propaganda

Odo (René Auberjonois) is tantalised by Croden (Cliff DeYoung), a being he has locked up for murder who may know how to find other shape-shifting beings. Can he trust this stranger or is it an attempt to get Odo to release him? Either way, Odo must transport him through a dangerous part of space in the Gamma Quadrant...

Intelligence report

More funny beings who seem to turn up conveniently in time to help the plot along. Everyone is still struggling with their characters (except Cirroc Lofton as Jake Sisko - watch this guy), but at least they have fixed Odo's make-up. This episode is a little too UFP, but with hindsight it's interesting to see the introduction of information which will later become vitally important (ie the Dominion and all its glory).
