Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1994

An interesting follows up to the season opener. Odo tries to get to know his people while Sisko and the crew grow nervous over the impending alliance between the Dominion and the Federation, it seems the Federation is giving up too much.
In the end we discover two things, the Federation-Dominion Alliance is a ruse, it is not real…all hallucinations brought on by the Founders…and the Founders are Odo’s people. It is a nice twist, Odo finally finds his people and who he is…but he doesn’t like what he has to find.

All in all, the Dominion arc begins well.
