Episode Info

DS9 is really building up to a conclusion at this point. The Dominion increases pressure on the Cardassian people, Gowron continues to implement his political plans by jeopardizing the alliance’s military, Odo’s disease progresses, and the Cardassian resistance tries to steal Dominion technology while sometimes fighting itself.

04 honoring martok

The ceremony where Gowron awards the Star of Kahless to Martok is great to watch, and it’s very Klingon. Although blood may have always been a part of the ceremony, it turns out to be very useful. As they add blood to the chalice by cutting their hands, they are also proving they are not shape changers.
