Odo and Laas Great Link

Odo and Laas beside the Great Link.

The Great Link was the intermingling of many Changelings in liquid form that ruled over the Dominion as the Founders. (DS9 episodes: "The Search, Part I", "The Search, Part II")

The Great Link was endangered by the morphogenic virus created by Section 31 to kill the Founders. The Female Changeling decided to end the Dominion War in exchange for Odo curing the Great Link. (DS9 episodes: "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River", "What You Leave Behind")

Following the Dominion War the Link was unpeaceful as it considered reports each Changeling had brought back of their massive defeat and consequences it continued to have in Dominion territory. The Link was also unsettled by ideas the Changeling Odo had brought back with him of not ruling with an iron fist and greater respect for solids. Despite Odo's arguments the Link persisted in quelling rebellion with the Jem'Hadar. Laas was used by the Link as a singular mouthpiece to communicate their intent to Odo. Despite Odo's initiative, to send a Jem'Hadar envoy to the Alpha Quadrant to further good relations, the Link feared an attack by the Alpha Quadrant powers in retaliation for the war. (DS9 novel: Avatar, Book Two)

In 2376, the Great Link came to an end. (DS9 - Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel: The Dominion: Olympus Descending)
