Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 48521.5: Odo and Kira pursue a Maquis raider into the Badlands, eventually landing on a remote planet to search for the Maquis on foot. Chasing their target through a quake-prone cave system, the two run into a snag when Kira’s foot is caught in a strange crystal which seems to be spreading. Despite making every effort with the equipment at his disposal, Odo is unable to free Kira from the crystal, which eventually traps Kira’s entire body. The situation becomes hopeless, and Kira will be completely encased within the crystal in only a few hours – and with nothing left to lose, Odo professes his unsung love for the Major.
