Stardate 49962.4: As Gowron agitates for the Federation to pull out of a sector claimed by the Klingon Empire, Odo begins suffering from a destabilization of his molecular structure which makes it difficult for him to maintain solid form. The only answer is for the Defiant to take Odo into Dominion space and ask for the Founders’ assistance. The Founders agree – in fact, they admit to causing Odo’s condition to force him to return and be judged for killing another Changeling. Odo accepts their judgment, pays the price…and learns a secret that will shake the Alpha Quadrant.
