Sinking the Defiant

Story: Starship Down
Written By: David Mack and John J. Ordover
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1995

Trying to deal with some trade negotiations in the Gamma Quadrant, the ship with the folks on the other end of the trade negations gets attacked by the Jem’Hadar and end up in a gaseous atmosphere. Then things go bad for the Defiant, everything ends up offline and people are hurt…and without Comm Systems working…it’s a difficult disaster situation.
It is one hell of an episode, pushing everyone to their limits. The cast is all working well together, and the integration of Worf in this crew is slowly beginning to come together, he is finally learning how to be a commander…and how to deal with people. It is a great little episode.

NEXT TIME: Back in 1947
