Episode Info

As was the case in seasons past, the fifth season of Deep Space Nine ended with a crisis situation, as the crew prepares for a devastating Dominion/Cardassian attack. Once again, Sisko tries to forestall the attack by closing off the wormhole, but his efforts are futile. Meanwhile, Odo and Kira put aside their blossoming relationship in the face of imminent destruction, Jake accepts a job as a war correspondent, and Worf proposes to Dax. As the episode hurtles to a close, the unthinkable happens, and the crew surrenders DS9 to the Dominion. Those watching "Call to Arms" during its original June 16, 1997 playdate would have to wait until the following season to witness the outcome of this particularly complex story. "Call to Arms" was written by Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe.
