The costume worn by stunt actress Elle Alexander was previously worn by Tricia O'Neil as Korinas in the third season episode "Defiant" and was later sold off on an online auction. See more »


Admiral Ross calls the Sao Paolo "Sam Paolo" when he reads the order on the PADD. However, this isn't a goof. It's actually closer to the correct pronunciation of the Portuguese name than pronouncing the "o" as in American English. (It is said like 'sahm' not 'saow'.) See more »


Damar: Citizens of Cardassia, hear me! The Dominion told you that the rebellion has been crushed. What you have seen here today proves that that is yet another lie. Our fight for freedom continues, but it will take place here, in the streets. I call on Cardassians everywhere to rise up, rise up and join me. I need *you* to be my army! If we stand together, nothing can oppose us. Freedom is ours for the taking!
Garak: Freedom!
Lonar: Freedom!
Cardassians: Freedom!

Forces From Within
12 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In this next to last episode of the series, I am only interested in the final battle. The Quark thing is truly superfluous and should have been done long ago. Also, the romantic scenes between Bashir and Dax are simply knot tiers. As is he news Sisko gets at the end. I thought the scenes the three rebels were excellent and the overconfidence of the Dominion make for a fun ending. Back in a few minutes for final commentary.
