In Purgatory's Shadow


Episode Info

Though Garak (Andrew J. Robinson) insists that a mysterious Cardassian-sounding message is insignificant, his subsequent behavior indicates otherwise. Sisko soon learns the truth: the Dominion is mounting yet another attack on the Federation. As Sisko makes preparations to close the wormhole, Garak and Worf are captured by the Jem'Hadar. The episode ends with a cliffhanger, not to be resolved until the following week's installment "By Inferno's Light." Written by Robert Hewitt Wolfe and Ira Steven Behr, "In Purgatory's Shadow" first aired February 10, 1997.
