Episode Notes
Log Entry:
* Personal Log, Stardate 52576.2 [Benjamin Sisko] - Dax and Worf are four days overdue. Dominion activity at their last known position has prevented us from sending a search team. For the time being, there's nothing to do but wait...and hope that they're all right.

"Penumbra" begins the final story arc of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which continues through the last ten episodes of the series.

Stellar Cartography
According to the atlas Star Trek: Star Charts by Geoffrey Mandel, the Goralis System is located within the Cardassian Union. While the Breen Confederacy borders the Union, with the Union separating the Breen from most of Federation space, Goralis is very far from that border. In fact, it is not far from the Cardassian border with the Federation. A Breen vessel being so far from home gives a very strong signal of what is to come.

Episode Quotes
Julian: (Referring to the transparant-skulled Gallamite) Personally, I don't know what Jadzia ever saw in the man.
Miles: Well, his brains.
