  • An explosive, action-packed finale to the second season's opening trilogy

    While DS9 is invaded by the Circle making Sisko and crew insurgents in their own station, Kira and Dax must get to the chamber of ministers to provide evidence that the Circle is in league with the Cardassians.

    The riveting political machinations of the previous two episodes are resolved here with a rather simplistic but nevertheless well-done action piece. The tension builds beautifully, the pacing is spot-on, the directing is accomplished and the script shines with acerbic wit. The conclusion does feel slightly rushed following such great build-up and the death of Li Nalas seems like a bit of a copout but this is still an excellent episode.
