Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Shadowplay

Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 2 episode 16: Shadowplay. In this episode Odo and Dax happen upon a little village of people wearing funny hats and white robes. Their sensors aren’t functioning as they try to figure out a mystery involving disappearing villagers. And we finally have some B-stories back at the station! We also have some familiar-faced guest stars in this episode in Kenneth Mars and Kenneth Toby.

In what shadows do we play?

Odo and Dax work together to solve the mystery of the week when they learn of the disappearing hat people. And we all know Odo loves a good mystery (especially when it involves finding people); and he also makes a new friend in a little girl who wonders about Odo’s parents. Back on the station, some smaller stories are happening. Kira hooks up with her old friend Vedek Bareil (maybe fulfilling that naked prophecy???) and loses her focus on the scheming Quark. And Sisko starts Jake on an apprenticeship with Miles where we learn of Jake’s ambivalence toward a career in Starfleet.
