Background information

  • The front inlay gets the episode name wrong - referring to "The Emissary", rather than the correct "Emissary".
  • Lukas Kendal of Film Score Monthly wrote: "Here at long last, Dennis McCarthy has been unleashed by the producers upon an unsuspecting mass of soundtrack collectors to prove his abilities. Without a doubt, the battle at "Wolf 359" is a spectacular musical presentation of the Federation's greatest defeat, complete with synth chorus, much of it inaudible in the actual episode. The same can be said for "The Sisko Kid," as the crew of DS9 face off against the Cardassians before Sisko's timely arrival".
