[DS9] Season 4, Episode 11: HomefrontRating: 3
It’s great to see some progress in the ongoing conflict with the Dominion, but this episode can be pretty slow. A lot of the story is about Sisko’s stubborn father, and the reluctance of earth to go along with mild security measures. It is nice to see a little more of the internal workings of The Federation when it concerns something like the Dominion threat.

Sisko’s dad doesn’t want blood screenings. He brings up the point that it wouldn’t be a very hard thing for changelings to get around, but I wished they addressed more holes, like if the changeling replaced Odo. There are ways they could’ve answered this, but they don’t even try.
Then the power is turned off on… all of earth.
For the big cliffhanger we see some federation security on the streets!
