If Insurrection had been an episode...

I got the impression that Ins was made because the studio had a couple of canisters of film left over from another project and decided to use them before they expired.

ok Perhaps I was following the wrong source.


First Contact though I do know was concurrent with quite early Season Five, because in the episode In Purgatory's shadow, Sisko makes reference to recent losses to the Borg. That I think is a nod to First Contact. So it would be some point between that and Rapture, which is where we first see the new Starfleet uniforms.


Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?

>Riker mentioned Dominon Negotiations, but I believe Sisko as well while the war was concurrent. I thought both sides had ongoing attempts while the war was in effect.

>It is of course possible that the Son'a weren't entirely organized and existed in factions. Some aligned themselves with the Dominion while Ru'Afo attempted a solution with the Federation. Riker did mention they produced vast quantities of Ketracel White, so it remains a question if it had uses outside the Dominion. Although, the problem of attention would still seem to apply.

I thought I remembered hearing that Ketracel White was exclusive to the Jem Hadar, due to their genetically engineered "upbringing"

In DS9, Ketracel White was indeed something that only the Founders could produce. However, there is mention in the episode Prenumbra that Son'a were tasked with safeguarding a Ketracel White facility -- because the Federation knows where it is. Odo actually gained this information from Weyoun VI in Treachery, Faith, and the Great River. In Insurrection this connection is not overtly made, but Ketracel White is mentioned as a "narcotic", which the Son'a have (no-one says how) managed to involve themselves in producing.

my DS9 memory is slipping me a bit here... The Federation put the Son'a in charge of guarding a Founders Ketracel White facility that they took control of? Or the Federation/Son'a had a facility of their own?

The Son'a were aligned with the Dominion and involved with Dominion production of the drug in the Alpha Quadrant.
