Episode propaganda

Worf (Michael Dorn) and Ezri (Nicole de Boer) are beamed aboard a Jem'Hadar ship, where the Female Changeling (Salome Jens) and Thot Gor, the respective leaders of the new Dominion-Breen alliance, prepare to sign a treaty designed to destroy the Federation and end the war. However, Legate Damar (Casey Biggs) objects to signing it because of concessions made to Thot Gor which could harm Cardassia. Meanwhile, Kai Winn (Louise Fletcher) and Dukat (Marc Alaimo) seal their bond by pledging to restore Bajor - even if the Emissary stands in their way.

Intelligence report

Heat.

The Dominion-Breen alliance signals the beginning of the end for the Federation. If you thought the Dominion-Cardassian alliance made things look grim, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Louise and Marc intensify their performances beyond expectation. Both have always shown themselves to be capable actors, but now they are pulling out all the stops (FYI: that phrase refers to church organs where a stop is the device which controls the various instrumental voices made by the organ: the more stops that are pulled out, the more voices are in use and the grander the sound).

While this episode can't stand alone, it is not made to. Watch it to understand everything else that happens. These final ten episodes of DS9 should be seen as an extra-long telemovie and appreciated accordingly.
