The Defiant

Story: The Search, Part I
Written By: Ronald D. Moore
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1994

The Dominion was hinted at the whole second season, and it paid off in the game changer “The Jem’Hadar”. “The Search, Part I” is the beginning of this new era of DS9, the arc with the Dominion. It introduces the station’s new battleship, USS Defiant…which is a great ship.
The episode is solid and entertaining, even if it is all set up for the next episode. In the end we discover on a planet where there are shapeshifters, Odo has found his way home.

NEXT TIME: Federation-Dominion Alliance
