[DS9] Season 4, Episode 26: Broken Link
This episode moves the greater plot of Deep Space Nine forward, but mostly towards the end of the episode. It feels a little slight for a season finale. If there were more tension as the Defiant approached the Changeling home world the episode may have worked better, but all around “Broken Link” is still pretty entertaining, and a must watch for how it leads into future episodes.
