Through the first seven parts of DS9's final arc, the writers set up an unwieldy number of threads. Some were concluded along the way, but many remained. As a result, a bridge was needed between the bulk of the story and the events of the finale. That bridge came in the form of "The Dogs of War," an episode that spread out the pieces of the puzzle, locked some of them in place, and clarified where the remaining ones would go.

In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing continue our series of shows that will take you through the entire nine-part, ten-hour Deep Space Nine finale with the penultimate episode "The Dogs of War." We discuss the replacement of the Defiant, Odo's reaction to learning of his betrayal by the Federation, the endgame of the Bashir-Ezri dance, why Grand Nagus Rom makes a lot more sense than most people think, and why Bonnie Tyler is ultimately responsible for the defeat of the Dominion.
