67. The Begotten (5.12)

Synopsis: Odo receives a sick infant Changeling from Quark and tries to teach it to shapeshift without resorting to the invasive techniques used by his old mentor, Doctor Mora. Meanwhile, Major Kira gives birth to the O’Briens’ baby.

Memory Alpha SummaryOh, Doctor Mora, a little help?

Review: While I admit I had trouble at times not just wondering what materials the infant Changeling was made out of, it was not for lack of effort or skills on Rene Auberjonois’s part.

He believably acts a father figure to the on-screen goo and while I can’t say I was moved, it was still pretty compelling. And I’m glad they brought on Odo’s mentor and humanized him (or is that Bajoranized?).
