Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 06 E 26 Tears Of The Prophets
The Federation Alliance goes on its first major offensive against the Dominion since the retaking of DS9: the taking of the Dominion shipyards in the Chin'toka system. Meanwhile, Dukat returns to Cardassia Prime with a plan of his own - one that he believes will not only allow the Dominion to again use the wormhole, but will strike a blow against the Emissary as well.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Call Back: Sisko's baseball once again serves the Rule of Symbolism. At the end of the previous season, he left it on his desk, as a message to the Dominion that he would be back. Here, he takes it with him, not sure if he is coming back.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Jadzia, when Bashir and Quark wonder what she and Worf were talking about in the holosuite:
    Worf: It is a private matter.
    Jadzia: We're thinking about having a baby!
    Worf: It was a private matter.
  • Downer Ending: Oh boy...
  • Famous Last Words: "Our baby would have been so beautiful." - Jadzia
  • Heroic BSOD: Sisko goes into one after Jadzia dies and the Prophets disappear.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Weyoun: Pah-Wraiths and Prophets...all this talk of gods strikes me as nothing more than superstitious nonsense.
    Damar: You believe that the Founders are gods.
    Weyoun: That's different.
    Damar: In what way?
    Weyoun: The Founders are gods.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Sisko when the Pah-Wraith invades the wormhole.
  • Nothing Personal: How Dukat views killing Jadzia. He was only targeting the orb, and she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Cardassia has been breached by the joint Federation-Romulan-Klingon forces. But Jadzia is dead, the wormhole is gone and Sisko leaves the station.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When Dukat is possessed by the Pah Wraith, his eyes turn red.
  • Talking to the Dead: Sisko speaks to Jadzia's coffin near the end of the episode.
