*[[Ronald D. Moore]] was a big fan of this episode, particularly due to how it portrayed the Founders. "''It ''[…]'' represented an interesting way to use the Changelings, making them more of a threat,''" he said. (''[[Captains' Logs Supplemental - The Unauthorized Guide to the New Trek Voyages]]'', p. 80) Another reason Moore approved of this episode was that he considered it to be very un-''Star Trek''. "''It really appealed to me on this sort of visceral [[John Wayne]] level,''" he remarked. "''There's a monster on the ship, it's after us, and we're gonna hunt it down and kill it. We're not gonna negotiate with it, we're not gonna worry about whether it's sentient, we're not gonna play any of the usual ''Star Trek'' games with it. It's just, 'Find and kill the monster.' There was something very pure about that show.''" (''[[Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion]]'')

*[[Ira Steven Behr]] sees this episode as an important step in the show's movement towards serialization, which would reach a peak in the six-episode arc which opened [[DS9 Season 6|season six]] and the nine-episode, ten-hour arc which acted as the finale of the series itself; "''"The Adversary" was the first one where we really knew we were going to be starting to get the S-word, serialized, just a tad. In spite of all the finger-wagging and knowing we weren't supposed to, it was just a little bit, a little bit''." (''The Birth of the Dominion and Beyond'', [[DS9 Season 3 DVD]] special features)
