Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Rewatch: "Destiny"

A joint Cardassian-Bajoran project is endangered by a prophecy, and Sisko struggles with being the Emissary. The DS9 Rewatch meets its "Destiny."

An excerpt:
Two Cardassian scientists are coming to the station to deploy a subspace relay on the Gamma Quadrant side of the wormhole, which will allow communication through the wormhole for the first time. Sisko goes over the security arrangements with Odo (the commander wants to make sure they feel like guests rather than prisoners, though Odo’s assigning guards to them is as much for the scientists’ safety from more militant factions opposed to the Bajoran-Cardassian treaty as it is anything else), the scientific data with Dax (who’s skeptical that the relay as designed will work), and, rather unintentionally, catering stuff with Quark, who finally has a use for the cases of kanar in his store room (though, to his chagrin, it’s gone bad in the years since the occupation ended).
