Episode Info

Deep Space Nine kicked off its third season on October 1, 1994, with the first installment of this two-parter. The episode was a carryover from the second-season closer "The Jem'hadar," with Sisko and his officers boarding the Defiant and venturing into the Gamma Quadrant in search of the Founders, the mysterious leaders of the Dominion. Unfortunately, they once again come face to face with the Dominion's ruthless disciples, the Jem'hadar. The only salvation for the Defiant rests in the hands of Odo, who has inexplicably deserted his comrades and set course for the Omarion Nebula. Part one of "The Search" was scripted by Ronald D. Moore from a story by Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe.
