Showcasing the greatest episodes from the Star Trek Universe…
Here at the thefutureoftheforce.com we are thrilled to be highlighting the finest episodes of the Star Trek universe on a weekly basis. From the classic Original Series and The Next Generation, to Deep Space Nine and Discovery only the finest episodes will be highlighted:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Way of the Warrior”
“Way of the Warrior” is the 1st episode from the fourth season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and one of the most regarded episodes of the entire seven season run.
Deep Space Nine prepares for a Dominion invasion.
A fleet of Klingon ships is stationed around Deep Space Nine, and the Promenade is swarming with Klingons. However, the warriors aren’t their usual antagonistic selves. General Martok, who leads the force, tells Sisko they have come to help the Federation fight the Dominion. Sisko finds this odd, since the Federation neither requested nor expected help. Garak and Odo then have a run-in with Drex, a young Klingon, who later attacks Garak for no apparent reason.
When a freighter is stopped by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey, Sisko confronts its commander, Kaybok. Under orders from the Klingon High Council to assist the Federation alliance, he insists the freighter must be inspected for Changelings. But Sisko, aboard the Defiant, forces him to let the vessel pass. Martok later has Kaybok killed for not carrying out his orders. Since Martok will not explain their motives, Sisko summons Lieutenant Commander Worf, formerly of the U.S.S. Enterprise, hoping the Klingon officer can determine their plans.
An enraged Klingon fleet attacks DS9, and is countered by several rounds of torpedoes. Many Klingon ships are destroyed, and Gowron orders his ships to target the shield generators. Klingon boarding parties beam into DS9, and after a hand-to-hand battle, the crew regains control of the situation.
