S2E19 - Blood Oath

I picked this episode because this is a turning point for Dax in terms of her character growth and development. It is one of my favorite episodes of the whole series, and it introduces Kor the Dahar Master. For me, this is the episode that takes Dax from the mousy science officer and turns her into ...

S2E15 - Shadow Play

I picked this episode for two reasons. The first being that the word Dominion comes up again in this episode, and because we see Kira and Bareil kiss. This episode is a pretty good multi-thread story. We have Dax and Odo solving a science problem, a security story about Kira is trying to bust Quark,...

S2E7 - Rules of Acquisition

This episode was selected for just one word... Dominion. This episode drops the first pebble in what will become something that will define this series and does so without it being the main part of the episode. The episode is about Quark and the Ferengi. It is framed around a trade negotiation, whic...

S2E5 - Cardassians

I picked this episode because it shows the tension between Garak and Dukat. While no one believes that Garak is a simple tailor, this episode reveals that there is more to him, as we watch him fix computers, navigate databases, and politically outmaneuver Dukat. It also reveals that Dukat does not l...

Re: S2E12 - The Alternate

I included this episode because it introduces Dr. Mora and reveals some early history to Odo. The story is a bit wonky, as mentioned above, and it really is more about the father-son relationship of Odo and Mora. It's a science mystery that wraps up in just the right amount of time. But really, I th...

Re: S2E8 - Necessary Evil

I picked this episode because we get to see how Odo and Kira met, and how Odo came to be the Constable. This episode was a Noir mystery a theme that will continue with Odo has the series goes on. I love that we find out that Kira did kill the collaborator, once again showing just how tough Kira was ...

Re: S2E3 - The Siege

I selected this episode as the conclusion of the three-arc opening of season 2. This episode is the culmination of all the plot threads. We have Kira and Dax trying to get word to the council, while Sisko, Odo, O'Brien, and Bashir hold the station from Bajorian forces. As the arc concludes, Li is ki...
