Michael Eddington (Kenneth Marshall), was the former Starfleet Security Chief, who betrayed Sisko (Avery Brooks) and joined the Maquis in "For the Cause," on the previous season of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." This act of treason has stuck in Sisko's craw for a long time and when they cross paths again in Episode 111, "For the Uniform" (Written by Peter Allan Fields Aired February 3, 1997). Sisko is obsessed with bringing Eddington to justice, especially after pursuing him in the "Defiant" only to learn that Eddington had rigged a computer failure. Now Sisko is not only angry, he has been humiliated, especially when he gets back to DS9 and learns Starfleet has assigned Captain Sanders of the "Malinche" to track down and capture Eddington. However, when Eddington attacks Cardassian colonies in the demilitarized zone using a biogenic weapon, Sisko takes off in the "Defiant," even though O'Brien has not had time to make all...
Although slightly dated nowadays, when this episode was new it was one of the best, and is definitely one of the best pre-war episodes. It continues the story of Eddington, the unlikely traitor who was actually leader of the Maquis, and betrayed Sisko's trust. This left Sisko very angry, and this episode is devoted to just how far Sisko will go to capture Eddington. It contains very little in the way of subplots, just a good, old fashioned space chase, and it's interesting to see how a Maquis ship manages to evade the Defiant, and goes to show just how cunning Eddington was.

In order to catch Eddington, Sisko opens fire on Maquis civilians trying to inhabit a Cardassian planet. Although they are not harmed, he places them in danger in order to catch Eddington, is this really conduct becoming a Starfleet captain? I doubt Starfleet Command would...
Synopsis: Sisko encounters Michael Eddington, his former Starfleet Security Chief, who betrayed him and joined the Maquis. Obsessed with capturing the traitor, Sisko pursues him in the U.S.S. Defiant. But when Sisko gives the order to fire, the U.S.S. Defiant experiences a massive computer failure, caused by Eddington. He leaves Sisko angry and humiliated, and facing a long trip home. The U.S.S. Defiant is towed back to Deep Space Nine, and O'Brien begins the massive job of bringing the ship back on-line. Adding insult to injury, Sisko learns that Captain Sanders of the U.S.S. Malinche has been assigned to apprehend Eddington since Starfleet feels Sisko hasn't himself been able to do the job in the past eight months. But when he learns that Eddington attacked Cardassian colonies in the DMZ with a biogenic weapon, Sisko sees his chance. Despite the fact that the U.S.S. Defiant is not ready, he prepares to take his starship back into space. The ship lurches out of...
