Re: Speculation about stuff in latest Typhon Pact novel SPOILERS WITHI
Odo wouldn't have much pull to get a lift by slipstream imho. The equipped ships are few and far between, and are probably pretty fully occupied.
He's Head of State of a power you have an extremely tenuous peace with. I think I could spare a starship to send him home.
Now that he's stuck in the Alpha Quadrant. What would keep more volatile elements from taking control of the Dominion in his absence?
