To Remain Solid

Story: Broken Link
Written By: George A. Brozak, Robert Hewitt Wolfe and Ira Steven Behr
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1996

As tensions between the Klingons and Federation grow, Odo gets some kind of virus and has trouble being able to retain his shape. Bashir’s only recourse is to take Odo to the founder’s home world. The Founders find the Defiant on the way, and take them to the home world to judge Odo for his crime of harming another Changeling. He is eventually judged and punished…and his ability to shapeshift is taken away: he is a solid.
And in the end a moment shakes the crew of DS9: Odo sees Gowron, who is pretty much declaring war on the Federation, and realizes something he learned in the Great Link: Gowron is a Changeling. See you next year.
