Storyline

Sisko wants to spend more quality time with Jake, and encourages him to think of a science project. They decide to make a field trip to a planet in the Gamma Quadrant which is in it's early stages of development. Jake wants to bring Nog along. He needs a good grade to stay in school. When Quark hears Nog is coming, he wants to come along as well. Quark's convinced he can change Sisko's previous decision to forbid him using the station's screens for advertising purposes. After some initial research of the planet, and with Jake and Nog still away, the two men have a meal, when an alien woman suddenly approaches them. She shoots Sisko with a telepathic weapon and claims she is on the run for the Jem'Hadar; soldiers of the Dominion. She advises Sisko and Quark to run, but it's too late: the three are taken captive by them, and it's up to Jake & Nog to rescue them. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Although Sisko denied Quark's request for posting advertisements on the station monitors, Quark would do it anyway (without permission) two years later, in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Quickening (1996). See more »

Goofs

Jake tells the computer on the runabout to turn off the autopilot and take them back to DS9. The autopilot would be needed for the computer to fly itself, so disengaging it would be the opposite of what he really wants. See more »

The Jem'Hadar.....aliens who are seriously kindness impaired and the action seriously heats up!
19 December 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode introduces the Jem'Hadar--the army working as enforcers for the Dominion. Who or what the Dominion are still remains to be seen.

When the episode begins, Sisko is planning a trip through the wormhole for a father-son outing. Jake asks if Nog can come along-- which isn't as the Commander had planned--but he agrees. However, Nog unexpectedly brings along Uncle Quark and Quark makes himself about as welcome as a case of hemorrhoids! He clearly HATES camping out and getting back to nature--and it's comical for a while. However, an alien who is being chased by super-scary soldiers (members of the Jem'Hadar). Quark, the Commander and runaway alien are taken prisoner. What's next? How about some good old fashioned carnage and mayhem!

This is an excellent episode because these new alien baddies are incredibly scary--arrogant, powerful and contemptuous of the Federation. Stay tuned to subsequent episodes for much, much more action concerning the Dominion, Jem'Hadar and their allies.
