As the Federation continues suffering heavy losses, Sisko embarks upon a bold plan to recapture Deep Space Nine from the Dominion. Meanwhile, back on the imprisoned space station, Rom is sentenced to death for sabotaging a Dominion mission. Through it all, the tenuous relationship between Dominion leaders Weyoun and Dukat continues to disintegrate, as virtually all of the other characters in this continuing "space opera" weave significantly in and out of the proceedings. Originally broadcast October 27, 1997, "Favor the Bold" was written by Ira Steven Behr and Hans Beimler.
