32. Shadowplay (2.16)

Synopsis: At a colony in the Gamma Quadrant, Dax and Odo investigate the mysterious disappearance of several colonists.

Memory Alpha Summary: Only the shadow knows

Review: One of the best examples of Trek having multiple plots that all fit a similar theme, of people being markedly different than they appear to be.

In one case, it’s literal (the hologram). In another, it’s family (son doesn’t want to follow in Dad’s footsteps).  In the other, it’s a clergyman playing the role of a lover instead of advisor. I enjoyed all three directions they took, especially Odo showing empathy and loyalty to a holographic girl.
