Story: Heart of Stone
Written By: Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
“Heart of Stone” is a great episode. We get two solid stories, the first has Odo and Kira trapped on a moon, with Kira herself trapped in an ever growing crystal. Odo has to save her, and it brings in many elements about Odo’s feelings for her, and her obviousness to his feelings. It is well executed, and the twist in the end is well done. It isn’t Kira trapped at all…it is the Female Changeling. We also get a nice little tale with the origin of Odo’s name.
NEXT TIME: The first joint Bajoran, Cardassian, and Federation science mission
