The Orb 55: Like Dead Leaves Before an Angry Wind / by Trek fm

The Final Chapter, Part 3 of 9: Strange Bedfellows.

With the outcome of the war uncertain, The Dominion turned to an unlikely ally in the Breen—a move that set into motion a series of events that would turn out to be their undoing. One such event was the changing face of Damar, whose growing disillusion with the Dominion comes to a breaking point. Meanwhile, back on Deep Space 9, Kai Winn continued her unlikely alliance with Gul Dukat.

In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing continue our series of shows that will take you through the entire nine-part, ten-hour Deep Space Nine finale with the third episode in the story, "Strange Bedfellows." We discuss the Breen misstep, trace Damar's change back to actions from long ago, explore the Ezri-Worf resolution, and follow Kai Winn's fall from grace. We also discuss three scenes from the script that didn't make it into the episode, two of which were never even shot. 

Running Time: 1 hour 21 minutes 13 seconds
