In which Martok gets his groove back.
In which the inner workings of the Ferengi political structure and heart are laid bare.
In which I didn’t ask for these feelings, damn it.
In which Quark gets shot, and a conscience.
In which Odo goes all mushy over a woman.
In which Bashir airs some dirty laundry and Rom spends three weeks girding his loins.
In which Dukat becomes hauntingly, horrifyingly familiar. Also there’s a prison escape and intrigue and action, but mostly the Dukat thing.
In which Garak tends to some personal business, some family relationships are strained, and someone’s had a really terrible month.
In which Sisko becomes the villain.
In which Odo becomes a daddy, Kira becomes a Mommy, and nothing tragic happens to return the show to status quo. I promise. You don’t seem to believe me.
