  • Precursor to "In The Pale Moonlight"

    We take a break from the Dominion/Klingon problems for one last Maquis adventure. Michael Eddington (played to the hilt by Kenneth Marshall, who clearly relishes playing the villain) is causing all manner of hell in the Demilitarized Zone, and Sisko needs to stop him. This proves tricky because Eddington is extremely intelligent and knows Sisko like Sisko knows baseball. In addition, Sisko has to play by the rules, while Eddington doesn't...or does he?

    This episode is really important for several reasons. For one, the return of Eddington, as a villain, is much appreciated--the scenes where he and Sisko square off are golden. For another, it sets up next season's famed "In The Pale Moonlight" by having Sisko go off the Starfleet reservation, so to speak, and compromise for the greater good. It also happens to be one of the series' most exciting and fun episodes ever. All in all, a superior effort. Then again, from writer Peter Allan Fields (of "Duet", "Necessary Evil", and TNG's "The Inner Light" fame) we would expect nothing less.
