[DS9] Season 4, Episode 23: To The Death
“To The Death” does a good job of adding some textures to our understanding of the Dominion and it’s various moving parts, delivered via a solid enough heist story. If the beef the Jem’Hadar group had with Weyoun made a little more sense, and if the arc of the two enemy crews earning each other’s respect was a bit more effective, it’d be a much stronger episode.

The Defiant returns to DS9 to discover that the Jem’Hadar ripped off one of the station’s fingers!
While tracking down the attackers they find a Jem’Hadar ship in distress.
A Weyoun and a squad of Jem’Hadar were tracking down Jem’Hadar that turned against the Dominion.
Weyoun says a group of Jem’Hadar found an Iconian portal! Worf reminds us that Iconian tech really freaked him out when he came across it in TNG.
So they team up!
But they don’t really get along. I like the rivalry between the Jem’Hadar and Klingons (in this case, specifically Worf).
The script says phasers and stuff don’t work on this planet.
They find the portal and blow it right up.
The Jem’Hadar guy doesn’t understand why Sisko is such a nice guy and not all super-suicidal-soldier-ish. I don’t totally understand why Sisko risks his life for this guy either? Unless it’s just a smart team building move.
After the mission the Jem’Hadar shoot Weyoun! Then they stick around to kill some more traitors. Ok!
