Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 26 - What You Leave Behind Part 2

Meanwhile on Bajor, Dukat, still disguised as a Bajoran, and Kai Winn, who has turned against the Prophets, trek to the fire caves with an ancient book that will release the Pah-wraiths. After she makes them appear around a chasm, Winn poisons Dukat, but he is resurrected by the Pah-wraiths and restored to his Cardassian appearance. A peace treaty is signed on DS9, and the crew celebrates in Vic's Lounge. However, in the middle of dancing with Kasidy, Sisko suddenly realizes he must go to the fire caves. He arrives and attacks Dukat, but is subdued by Dukat's new godlike powers. Winn tells Sisko to destroy the book, and Dukat kills her. Sisko topples Dukat and they and the book fall into the fiery chasm. Suddenly finding himself in the Celestial Temple, Sisko is told by Sarah that his task is complete, and it is time for him to rest with the Prophets. The DS9 crew is puzzled by Sisko's disappearance until he comes to Kasidy in a vision, telling her that he has moved on to a new stage of his life. He assures her he will return, but because of his nonlinear nature, it could be in a year, or yesterday. The crew splits up: O'Brien will teach at Starfleet Academy, Odo will join the Founders, and Worf will join Martok by becoming ambassador to Qo'noS. Montages highlight the relationships between O'Brien and Bashir, Ezri and Worf, Kira and Odo, Sisko and Jake, and Quark and everybody. Odo refuses to give Quark a fond farewell, but Quark is pleased anyway, thinking it an unspoken respect. Kira takes Odo to the Founder's planet, where he switches to a tuxedo before he sinks into the Link and cures the disease. Bashir and Ezri discuss their future relationship together. Nog discusses his promotion with new station commander Kira before she goes to Quark's to shut down his betting ring on the new Kai. Quark then tells Morn, "the more things change, the more they stay the same" (the last spoken line of the series). Finally Kira finds Jake on the promenade, and they both look out as the wormhole opens, knowing that their friend and father now resides in that Celestial Temple.

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 25 - What You Leave Behind Part 1

On Deep Space Nine, Bashir wakes up with Ezri, O'Brien talks with his family about leaving the station after the war, and Sisko comforts a pregnant, nauseated Kasidy. It is the morning of the day the crew will leave for the final push in the war. While heading for battle on the Defiant, Sisko receives a vision of his prophet-mother Sarah. She claims that his most important challenge is "not before you, but behind you." The battle between the Jem'Hadar/Breen/Cardassian fleet and Starfleet/Klingon/Romulan fleet begins. Kira, Garak, and Damar, hiding on Cardassia Prime as insurgents, incite a worker revolt and power outage, which cuts off communication between the Dominion Fleet and the command center housing Weyoun and the diseased Founder. In retaliation, the Jem'Hadar wipe out an entire Cardassian city. The insurgents are about to be executed by a team of Jem'Hadar and Cardassian soldiers, but are saved when the Cardassians turn on them in revenge. Midway through the space battle, the Cardassian ships also switch sides, which Weyoun discovers when communications are restored. As an ultimate retaliation, the Founder orders the eradication of the Cardassian race, and the Jem'Hadar begin leveling the capital. Kira and the insurgents storm the command center, capture the Founder, and kill Weyoun, but Damar is killed. Though the Dominion's Alpha Quadrant forces are facing defeat, the Founder will not surrender, presumably to inflict so much damage that the Alpha Quadrant powers will be deterred from attacking the Dominion. Sisko prepares for a costly assault on Cardassia Prime. Odo beams to the command center and links with the Founder, curing her disease. She orders her forces to surrender. Odo explains to Kira that he has agreed to cure the other Founders, but needs to join them permanently, to eventually persuade them to trust solids instead of dominating them. Bashir says farewell to Garak, who stays to help rebuild Cardassia. Garak is skeptical that they will ever meet again, because they live "in uncertain times." (The final verbal exchange between Bashir and Garak was cut from the re-run version of the episode.) Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 24 - The Dogs of War

The episode begins wrapping up the remaining loose ends of the series before the series finale. The Cardassian rebellion headed by former leader Damar, whose successor Legate Broca is also introduced, suffers a severe blow when Damar is stranded with Garak and Kira on Cardassia, specifically the home of Garak's former caretaker Mila, and his rebel bases are destroyed. With the encouragement of Kira, the three bomb a Jem'Hadar barracks, where Damar reveals to the people that he is not dead, as Dominion propaganda claimed. He then calls upon the Cardassian populace to rise up against the Dominion. Even though the organized military resistance is gone, a massive civilian revolution begins. On Deep Space Nine, Quark receives a message from the Grand Nagus Zek, apparently informing him that he has been chosen as his successor upon his imminent retirement. Upon a visit from his old rival Brunt, however, he discovers that Zek, presumably under the influence of his mother Ishka, has instituted a number of reforms, including promoting worker's rights, environmental protection and outlawing monopolies. Quark is so disgusted by these violations of old Ferengi tradition that he threatens to turn down the job. Upon Zek's arrival to name his successor, however, he discovers that he was never the intended heir of the Grand Nagus, and it was in fact Quark's brother Rom. Quark is still extremely unimpressed, and in a subsequent monologue swears to turn his bar into a refuge for the old unrestrained capitalism that was symbolic of his Ferenginar, though admits his brother is much more suited to be the leader of a new Ferenginar. At Dominion headquarters on Cardassia, the Female Changeling, Weyoun, Broca and the Breen Representative Thot Pran note the Federation has overcome the Breen weapon, and resolve to make a major retreat in hopes that the Federation and its allies will leave them alone long enough for them to rebuild their fleets. Despite their position, they still believe in a final victory. Sisko anticipates this, however, and he and Chancellor Martok press for a final assault to be launched upon Cardassia Prime to end the war. Starfleet Admiral Ross and the Romulan representative reluctantly agree. After this, Sisko's wife Kasidy tells him that she is pregnant, and she is concerned by a warning from the Prophets that Sisko, as the emissary, must walk his path alone. Sisko attempts to comfort her. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Sloan shows up in Julian Bashir's quarters, baited by the fake announcement of a cure to the changelings' plague. When Sloan sees no way to get out of Bashir's interrogation, he kills himself. Bashir, with Miles O'Brien, use an "optronic engrammatic interpreter" to infiltrate Sloan's mind. Sloan tries to keep the two inside his brain, so that they will die when he goes brain dead.

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 22 - Tacking Into the Wind

In the previous episode, Kira Nerys, Odo and Garak went to Cardassia to help Damar in his rebellion against the Dominion, while Bashir tried in vain to find a cure for Odo's illness. Worf suspects that Gowron's new military strategies are meant to humiliate Martok, with no thought of the consequences for the Klingon Empire as a whole. He urges Martok to challenge Gowron, but Martok refuses to even talk about it. Garak tells Kira that Odo has been hiding the true extent of his illness; Kira says she knew but wants to let Odo put on a brave front. They go with Damar to a Jem'Hadar shipyard with the intent of stealing the Breen energy dampening weapon. En route, Damar receives word that his family was captured and executed by the Dominion. Kira responds to his outrage at the slaughter of innocent civilians by reminding him that the Cardassians did exactly the same thing during their occupation of Bajor, but after Damar leaves she retracts her statement. Garak points out that Damar still has a romanticism about the past, and this incident along with her words may be what Damar needs to renounce those views and focus on freeing Cardassia from the Dominion. On board a Jem'Hadar ship Odo takes the form of the female changeling, complete with skin damage, and - despite a delay - they successfully steal a ship equipped with the Breen weapon. In the process, Rusot, Damar's friend and second in command, tries to convince Damar to take the weapon for themselves and not give it to the Federation. Damar is forced to kill Rusot, giving up his vision of restoring the old Cardassia and instead aiding the Federation in the hope of creating a better one. As the weapon is installed, the rebels depart the station and head for Federation space. Miles O'Brien suggests to Julian Bashir that he announce that he has found a cure to the changelings' illness as a way to lure someone from Section 31 to DS9. Worf discusses Gowron's actions with Ezri, who points out that when men as honorable as Martok and Worf knowingly allow corruption at the highest levels, there is no hope for the empire as a whole. Worf muses on this during a High Council meeting in which Gowron presents a suicidal plan of attack against the Dominion. Worf challenges Gowron to a duel and kills him in honorable combat. By Klingon law, this makes Worf the new Chancellor, but Worf refuses the robe of office and hands it to Martok instead. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

To help Damar lead the revolt against Cardassia, Benjamin Sisko orders Kira Nerys to go with Garak to Cardassia to teach the Cardassians the techniques of guerilla warfare. Admiral Ross grants Kira a temporary Starfleet commission, with the rank of Commander. Julian Bashir's idea of using changeling tissue to create better synthetic organs for solids leads to his discovering that Odo is infected with the same disease plaguing the Great Link. Odo decides to go with Kira to Cardassia anyway. Bashir tries hard to get Odo's medical records from his visit to Earth three years ago, but when he receives a phony file he realizes that Section 31 created the disease and used Odo as a carrier. After inducting Martok into the Order of Kahless, Gowron announces he will take a more active role in the conduct of the war. Gowron designs a plan to attack the Dominion, even though Worf and Martok point out that the Klingons would be outnumbered twenty to one. Anjohl Tennan (Dukat) sneaks a look at the book of the Kosst Amojan and the Pah-wraiths punish him by blinding him. Winn throws Anjohl out and tells him he can return when his sight is restored.

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 20 - The Changing Face of Evil

In the previous episode, Damar had helped Ezri Dax and Worf escape execution on Cardassia Prime, while Anjohl Tennan (Dukat) had convinced Winn Adami to walk the path of the Pah-wraiths. The Breen attack San Francisco. Starfleet Headquarters and the Golden Gate Bridge are damaged in the attack. Solbor reluctantly brings Winn the book of the Kosst Amojan, but to her surprise, the pages of the book are blank. It isn't until Winn kills Solbor that his blood makes the text of the book visible. In a major battle with the combined forces of the Breen, Cardassians and Jem'Hadar, the Federation alliance suffers one of its worst defeats of the war in orbit of Chin'toka. The USS Defiant is among the many ships destroyed, the result of a new weapon unleashed by the Breen - an energy-dampening beam that renders all weapons and drive systems powerless. Many escape pods soon eject from the Defiant and other ships as the Dominion forces retake Chin'toka. Weyoun wishes to destroy the pods, but the Female Changeling allows them to be rescued, reasoning that the survivors' reports will have a demoralizing effect on their comrades. What could have been a Dominion juggernaut to victory is ground to a halt when DS9 intercepts a message from within Cardassian boundaries. It was Damar, who announces that Cardassia will revolt against the Dominion and initiates this action by destroying one of the Vorta cloning facilities - the one responsible for cloning Weyoun. While this would buy valuable time for the Federation alliance to regroup, Sisko realizes that they would have to contact Damar in order to achieve final victory.

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 19 - Strange Bedfellows

In the previous episode, Gul Dukat, disguised as a Bajoran named "Anjohl Tennan", got very close to Kai Winn, Benjamin Sisko married Kasidy Yates despite warnings from the Prophets, and Ezri Dax and Worf were beamed by the Breen aboard a Jem'Hadar ship. Thot Gor, of the Breen, presents Dax and Worf to the changeling as a gift. The Breen are accepted into the Dominion regardless of Damar's disapproval of the treaty and its consequences for Cardassia. In addition, Septimus III is attacked by the Klingons and although Weyoun promised "deal with it", the entire Eleventh Order is wiped out. Damar's mood worsens as Thot Gor is allowed access to classified Cardassian information. The mood in Quark's bar is sombre, as the crew misses Worf and Dax. Bashir's talk leads O'Brien to believe that he is in love with Ezri. Sisko isn't well either, as his wife begins to be uncomfortable with being married to an important figure in Bajoran religion. During a confrontation with their captors, Worf slays Weyoun, though this is ultimately pointless as another clone would be sent in. As Worf and Ezri are taken to be executed, Damar realizes that the Dominion is not a good thing for Cardassia. He frees Worf and Dax and informs them he will help the Federation. "Anjohl" convinces Winn to walk the path of the Pah-wraiths, by promising that Bajor will be "restored". However, Winn receives a vision from the Pah-wraiths that frightens her. She calls on Kira, who advises her to step down as Kai. Winn, disapproving of this advice, returns to Anjohl for comfort, and reluctantly accepts the Pah-wraiths.

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 18 - 'Til Death Do Us Part

Kai Winn visits DS9 and tells the Emissary that she will officiate his marriage to Yates, and not the Vedek that Sisko chose. After leaving Sisko's office, Winn has what she thinks is her first vision from the Prophets ever. They say that "the Sisko has faltered," that the Prophets have chosen her for "a great task," and that she will be aided by a guide who has "the wisdom of the land." Dax and Worf continue arguing even after being separately interrogated by the Breen. Worf's jealousy of Julian Bashir is confirmed when Ezri drowsily declares her love for him. Dukat arrives at DS9 and visits Kai Winn, posing as Anjohl Tennan, a Bajoran farmer whose life was spared during the occupation by Winn's intervention. Winn believes then that this is the man the Prophets sent to be her guide, someone who has "the wisdom of the land." Winn and Anjohl quickly become very close, to the disapproval of Solbor, one of Winn's aides. Kasidy is angry when Benjamin tells her what the Prophets said of their engagement to be married. Despite a discussion with Kira Nerys and another vision from the Prophets reaffirming their warning, Benjamin marries Kasidy in a last-minute ceremony officiated by Admiral Ross. Weyoun orders Damar to go on a trip aboard a Jem'Hadar ship with him but doesn't tell him where. Arriving at the rendezvous point, some Breen soldiers beam in along with Dax and Worf. Weyoun announces that the Breen have allied themselves with the Dominion. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Recap Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7, Episode 17 - Penumbra

At the bar, Ezri Dax learns that the USS Defiant has given up the search for Worf, who was lost in the Badlands while commanding a Klingon ship attacked by the Jem'Hadar. Ezri Dax takes a runabout by herself to the Badlands. Contacted by Benjamin Sisko from DS9, she unconvincingly pretends that there is too much interference, and Sisko decides to allow her to look for Worf. Dax has the computer extrapolate a likely entry point for Worf's escape pod into the Badlands, then she takes the runabout in and cuts the engine, hoping that the currents will take her to Worf's position. Back on the station, Sisko tells Kasidy Yates of his plans to build a house on Bajor, and asks her to marry him. Yates says yes, but the Prophets say no. Benjamin selects his son, Jake, to be the best man at the wedding. Sarah Sisko appears in a vision to Ben and tells him that he will suffer if he marries Yates. On Cardassia, Weyoun takes a tissue sample from the Female Changeling to give to the Vorta doctors, who've made little progress in finding a cure to the illness plaguing the Great Link. Damar, who's becoming more of an alcoholic, is visited by Dukat, who asks for a recommendation for a doctor to surgically alter him to make him look Bajoran. After weathering some turbulence in her runabout, Ezri Dax finds Worf's escape pod and transports him aboard. But Worf is not all that grateful. He questions Ezri's motives for rescuing him and resents comparing her to Jadzia Dax. Their runabout is gunned down by the Jem'Hadar, and Dax and Worf hastily transport to a nearby planet without a comm unit. After an argument, they have sex, then they are captured by the Breen.
