Well, it’s finally happened–we’ve reached the multi-part arc that finishes out Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In “Penumbra”, Captain Sisko makes an important decision, and Worf goes missing. In “Til Death Do Us Part”, someone gets married.
DS9 seems really invested in making Ezri a character, so they give us a dysfunctional family backstory in “Prodigal Daughter”. Then, we say goodbye to the Mirror Universe with “The Emperor’s New Cloak.”
We find out what Dukat’s been up to since the events of the sixth season finale and surprise, surprise, it’s not great, as “Covenant” reveals. Then, in “It’s Only a Paper Moon”, we find out what Nog’s been up to since he lost his leg. Man, DS9, you’re really being a bummer this week.
Dax’s old friend Kor visits Deep Space Nine for the final time in “Once More Unto the Breach”, and Worf and Martok disagree over what to do about it. Then, Sisko and crew get stuck in “The Siege of AR-558”.
Sometimes old friends pop up in new and unexpected ways, and Bashir deals with this problem, in “Chrysalis”. Then, in “Treachery, Faith, and the Great River”, an old enemy pops up and Odo has to deal with it.
After introducing Ezri Dax in last week’s, two-parter, DS9 gives us a bit more with her, in “Afterimage”. Then, in “Take Me Out to the Holosuite”, a baseball game results in learning and growing. Hey, it’s like this is a television show, or something!
