Season 3 opens with a sneaky bang. The Defiant! Replete with Romulan operated cloaking device, Sisko brings this “war ship” back from Earth to pop across the wormhole to try & make nice with The Founders. Good luck. After some early success from Quark, there are men left behind, kidnappings and what seems like Odo deserting. Turns out he is just “called home” and meets some pools of goo that are his parents.
