Penumbra

Til Death Do Us Part




Written by Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, Directed by Winrich Kolbe.
On the eve of his marriage to Kasidy Yates, Sisko continues to recieve ominous visions from the Sarah-Prophet warning him against the union.  Meanwhile, Worf and Ezri, who are still being held by the Breen, contemplate their renewed relationship.   Masquerading as a Bajoran named Anjohl, Gul Dukat returns to the station as the Guide appointed to Kai Winn by the Pah Wraiths, who are trying to seduce her away from the Prophets.

Press Release:
AS SISKO AGONIZES OVER HIS BROKEN ENGAGEMENT, DUKAT'S LATEST EVIL PLAN IS REVEALED.
Kai Winn arrives at the station to "assist" Sisko with his wedding, and he admits the Prophets warned he would face a great trial in his future. Later, Winn has a long-awaited vision from the Prophets, who reveal that a "Guide" will soon visit her; the Prophets hope that, together, the two will lead Bajor's Restoration. Shortly before Sisko tells Kasidy that they must call off their wedding, Dukat, surgically altered to look like a Bajoran, appears on the Promenade.
Special Guest Star: Louis Fletcher as Kai Winn. Guest starring Jeffrey Combs as Weyoun, Penny Johnson as Kasidy Yates, Marc Alaimo as Gul Dukat/Anjohl, Casey Biggs as Damar, Barry Jenner as Admiral Ross, Deborah Lacey as Sarah, Aron Eisenberg as Nog, James Otis as Solbor and Salome Jens as Female Shapeshifter.

Episode Notes

  • Solbor, Kai Winn's aide, is introduced, and will soon be killed by her when he becomes suspicious of her involvement with the Pah Wraiths.

Strange Bedfellows (was: Eclipse)



Written by Ronald D. Moore, Directed by Rene Auberjonois.
Worf and Ezri are given to the Dominon as "gifts" from the Breen on the eve of their alliance.  Slated for execution, Worf manages to kill Weyoun during an interrogation and is assisted in escape by Damar, who has grown to come against the Cardassian/Dominion alliance.

Press Release:
WHILE WORF AND EZRI FACE EXECUTION, AN ALLIANCE BETWEEN ENEMIES THREATENS TO TURN THE TIDE OF THE WAR AGAINST THE FEDERATION.
Worf and Ezri are beamed aboard a Jem'Hadar ship, where the Female Shapeshifter and Thot Gor, the respective leaders of the new Dominion-Breen alliance, prepare to sign a treaty designed to destroy the Federation and end the war. However, Damar objects to signing it because of concessions, made to Thot Gor, which could harm Cardassia. Meanwhile, Kai Winn and Dukat seal their bond by pledging to restore Bajor - even if the Emissary stands in their way.
Special Guest Star: Louis Fletcher as Kai Winn. Guest stars Penny Johnson as Kasidy Yates, Jeffrey Combs as Weyoun, Marc Alaimo as Gul Dukat/Anjohl, Casey Biggs as Damar, J.G. Hertzler as Martok, James Otis as Solbor and Salome Jens as Female Shapeshifter.
