Overview

One of the hundred sent out by The Founders long ago to explore the galaxy, Odo was found adrift in 2356 in the Denorios Belt by Bajorans, who indirectly gave him his name. It is unclear how long he had been adrift in the Denorios Belt. Since Odo had not yet learned how to adopt a humanoid appearance, he appeared in his natural gelatinous form. The Bajorans, not sure of what Odo actually was, put him in a container and labelled it "unknown sample". The Cardassian overseers translated this into their own language as "odo'ital", literally "nothing". Even after it became clear that Odo was sentient, the scientists kept calling him by that name, which eventually was styled (as a joke) into a Bajoran name "Odo Ital", then shortened to Odo (which is actually also a very old German given name). The Hundred are a group of 100 Changelings from the Star Trek universe, seen primarily in the series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ... Changelings are an alien race from the Star Trek universe. ... Bajorans, a race of humanoids in the fictional Star Trek universe, were introduced in the Next Generation series and played an integral part in the Deep Space Nine series. ... It has been suggested that Cardassian military ranks be merged into this article or section. ... A given name is a word which specifies and differentiates between members of a group of individuals, especially a family, all of whose members usually share the same family name. ...


He was studied by Bajoran scientist Dr. Mora Pol, whom Odo disliked due to Mora's questionable (but effective) practice of inducing pain as a motivator in encouraging Odo to assume different shapes before, and even after, it was recognized that Odo was sentient. Odo modelled his humanoid appearance on Dr. Mora, but never had the skill to duplicate humanoid features with precision, making his humanoid appearance an approximation. (Originally, Odo's "unfinished" look was intended to convey that he simply chose not to bother with anything more than the most basic face, since he didn't really care what others thought of his appearance, but this subtext was soon dropped.)


Odo later worked for the Cardassians during the Occupation of Bajor aboard the orbiting Terok Nor ore-processing space station and later for the Bajorans/Federation aboard Deep Space Nine (the Federation name for Terok Nor), in both cases as chief of security. During the occupation, Gul Dukat had originally enlisted Odo in order to investigate the murder of one of the Bajoran station workers; since Odo was seen as a neutral observer, sympathizing with no one, he was considered a valuable security officer. The Cardassian Occupation or simply the Occupation is a period in the fictional Star Trek universe affecting the planet Bajor and the Bajorans. ... Deep Space Nine Deep Space Nine is a fictional space station in the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ... In the Star Trek fictional universe, the United Federation of Planets (UFP) – widely referred to and known as merely the Federation – is an interstellar federal state of more than 150 member planets and thousands of colonies. ...

In the fictional universe of Star Trek, Gul is a military rank used by Cardassians. ... In the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine television series, S.G. Dukat was a Cardassian leader and a recurring antagonist of Benjamin Sisko. ...


Odo's early career on Terok Nor hit a snag when he investigated an assassination attempt on Dukat. Three Bajoran workers were initially linked to the attack, and Odo - eager to ensure the rule of law and quickly conclude the investigation - hurriedly convicted them and allowed them to be executed. Soon after, Odo discovered that all three men were innocent and that Odo's lax investigative procedures caused a serious miscarriage of justice, prompting Odo to be much more insistent on actual justice (not necessarily the actual letter of the law).


Up until this time, Odo was unaware of his people and his ancestry. A criminal showed him a necklace containing a non-sentient shapeshifter in the episode "Vortex." Later, in the episode "The Alternate", Dr. Mora visited Odo at Deep Space Nine and went with him to the Gamma Quadrant to investigate a planet with a similar life-form. It wasn't until later that Odo learned that his people were the leaders of the Dominion. Crodons necklace has a rock that changes shape. ... The Alternate is a second-season episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ... In the fictional Star Trek universe, the Dominion is a ruthless and militaristic Gamma Quadrant state, consisting of many different races, with ultimate power held by the xenophobic Changelings. ...


In 2372, Odo married Lwaxana Troi in accordance with Tavnian law as a favor to her, so that her child would not be taken away from her at birth. Although Odo had been annoyed by Troi in the past, he came to appreciate her company. However, he still did not love her in a romantic way, so after her ex-husband witnessed the marriage, Troi went back to Betazed. Lwaxana Troi, Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed is a fictional character in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ...


Because he had at one point killed another Changeling, the Founders punished him by taking away his shapeshifting abilities and making him into a human being. He retained his physical body for several months. Eventually, an infant shapeshifter who was dying integrated itself into Odo's physical makeup. This integration caused Odo's body to revert back to normal, and he regained all his shapeshifting abilities.


Odo remained loyal to the Bajoran and Federation people throughout the Dominion War. At the end of the war, Odo went back to the Great Link. He did this to cure the other Founders of a disease that Section 31 had infected them with, and to teach the Founders how to trust other races again. Section 31 is the unofficial designation of a rogue and officially nonexistent intelligence and defense organization resembling secret police or a black-ops organization in the Star Trek fictional universe. ...


During his time on the station, Odo was involved in a running battle of wits with the Ferengi Quark. Odo would spend a great deal of time watching Quark, both in humanoid form, as well as various other shapes. Over the years the two men would gain a grudging respect for each other. (This is a clear homage to the 1942 film "Casablanca", with Odo in Claude Rains' role of Captain Louis Renault and Quark as Bogart's Rick Blaine, albeit with the dour Odo's and ebullient Quark's personalities reversed; this is made explicit when Quark says, "Everybody comes to 'Quark's'", an obvious reference to the play on which the film is based.)
