Synopsis: Odo is contacted by Weyoun, who reveals that he wants to defect to the Federation. Meanwhile, O’Brien and Nog sail down the Great Material Continuum.
Memory Alpha Summary: A rather short defection
Review: A defecting Weyoun is a fantastic concept to explore, but unfortunately the A-Plot here dumps too much new info all at once; we’ve had many Weyouns so far; they have an instant kill switch; and the Founders are dying. The result is a rushed episode and the feeling the final season is also being rushed.
I’m a bit intrigued by what’s happening to the Founders, but Odo having to deal yet again with a Vorta worshiping him didn’t really move me. My favorite part was watching Odo give Kira a shapeshifter massage. One can only imagine what other things he can do for her.
The B-plot with Nog trading everyone else’s stuff to help O’Brien help an out-of-character jackass Sisko is embarrassing and has been done too many times on this show. Very sitcom level stuff.
