Odo's actions during this incident resulted in Paris still sitting in a holding cell on DS9 when Voyager was thrown into the Delta Quadrant.

It held the crown for being the grimmest Star Trek series until Discovery started in 2017. He felt that the name was appropriate, since he had no friends, no past, and no form; once he had gained the respect and affection of Kira and the others on the station, he ceased hearing "Odo" as "nothing" and simply considered it his name. Also, owing to information Odo had gleaned in the Link, he was convinced that Chancellor Gowron, the leader of the Klingon Empire, was actually a Founder. Odo later learned that the Hundred were initially sent out to find the Progenitor – the first Changeling and the key to solving their declining population, as Changelings could not reproduce (Odo and the other Hundred were not "infants", but merely Changelings that had never been part of the Great Link) – but the discovery of the Progenitor's death caused the Changelings to disperse across the quadrant. It's still sort of like, ok, it's another star ship and it's another captain – it's different but it's still a riff on the original.

After initially becoming annoyed with shifting into every plant and rock he could see, with the aid of the Female Changeling, he changed into a bird and took flight, finding that he enjoyed exploring his shape-shifting abilities.

SISKO: Just before we left Deep Space Nine, the wormhole was exhibiting some unusual behaviour, opening and closing for no apparent reason. This required a public profession of his love for her, which although forced (and not of a genuinely romantic nature), came across as incredibly candid. (DS9: "Shadowplay"), At some point during the Occupation, Odo arrived on Terok Nor. (DS9: "Broken Link", "Extreme Measures"). Although he doesn't know anything about his species, he is certain that justice is an integral part of their being, because the necessity for it runs through every fiber of his body – a racial memory.

The other shapeshifters may have just used their greater collective ability while linked with Odo to force him to alter his form into that of a humanoid, guiding the specific elements of his transformation such as Human physical makeup based on their expert knowledge of Humans. While Odo was locked into a humanoid form, it hinted that he was essentially still a Changeling because, as Dr. Bashir later pointed out, Odo's brain still contained morphogenic components. (DS9: "Take Me Out to the Holosuite"), Although Odo was ostensibly an "orphan" from his beginnings of life in the Alpha Quadrant, Dr. Mora liked to think of himself as Odo's father and referred to himself as such on several occasions.

Though their attempts did result in making the infant form a face to look at Odo (along with various other shapes, assuming them seemingly at a much faster rate than Odo had when in Mora's care), its morphogenic matrix began to destabilize. By doing so, the inhabitants of Gaia ceased to exist.

He is barely able to hold shape. Weapons had been smuggled to the Circle through Kressari traders, which Odo revealed by using his shapeshifting abilities to "borrow" a passenger manifest with a Gul's thumbscan on it. As Michael Piller explains, "we needed a character who represented the traditions of Spock and Data, the outsider who looks in at humanity." As of 2382, Odo had only rediscovered approximately thirty Changelings, including himself and Laas, to form a new Link. "Which is?" The story had been fabricated by Croden to manipulate Odo into helping Croden rescue Croden's daughter. JARESH-INYO: I wasn't aware the Dominion had cloaking technology. Odo's frustration was exacerbated when Captain Sisko decided to bring him on an undercover mission to expose Gowron as being a Changeling infiltrator. Finally, she removed her wig and admitted that no one had ever seen her in her natural state either. The experience, a product of Odo's guilt, persuaded him to admit the truth to himself and others. Elim Garak responded that he wasn't sure if Odo even had a mother. While Kira led a resistance cell, Odo did nothing to help. By shapeshifting into an object, not only was he able to create a visual representation of the object; he was able to duplicate the object to such degree that if he was scanned with a tricorder while he was in the shape of a bird, the tricorder would detect a bird. One is to launch a major suit with full powers of discovery.

Back on DS9, Odo discusses the worsening situation on Bajor. Odo and Dax investigate the mysterious disappearance of people from a village. Odo responded by citing a number of security breaches aboard the USS Enterprise before Worf told him to stop.

Julian Bashir: You know, some people say that you remained on DS9 as the eyes and ears of your fellow Cardassians. "Luck had nothing to do with it. They were stuck in the turbolift so long that Odo could barely hold his shape and was literally "melting."

Garak: "But before you go for a swim, I have a few questions I'd like to ask you." Although Worf almost killed Gowron in honorable combat, Odo had deduced, by this time, that "Martok" was the true Changeling and Odo's information about the infiltrator had been deliberately falsified by the Founders to provoke further unrest between the Federation and the Klingons, weakening them and paving the way for a Dominion invasion of the Alpha Quadrant. After Odo admitted having romantic feelings for Kira, he was able to see through the ruse when she claimed to feel the same way; he was sure that Kira didn't love him, but knew she wouldn't lie to him about something so important.
