Former Gul Meloneus returns for revenge against the Phoenix-X in his newly refitted starship, the Scorpion. When the two engage combat, the crew of the Phoenix-X find that the Scorpion is capable of matching each and every one of their moves. This realization is followed by the fact that Meloneus had joined the Fragma Alliance, and therefore received well-equipped upgrades from them. But when Shane is traded over to Meloneus in exchange for the Phoenix-X's crew's lives, the Cardassian finds he gets more than he bargained for.
- This is Meloneus' last appearance on the series to this date.
- Meloneus' history and why he hates Changelings so much is finally revealed in this episode.
- The episode title was based off Canadian hip-hop artist Kardinal Offishall's 2001 single "BaKardi Slang".
