Review : This is the kind of episode I like when it's done right; here, it's definitely done right. A DS9 salvage team travels to an abandoned sister station for spare parts, but the station is booby trapped and guarded by Cardassian super-soldiers. Every member of the salvage team gets their time in the spotlight, which is very rare for Star Trek. The atmosphere of a dark and deserted station is eerie and the acting was good throughout. I have always found the idea of O'Brien being some kind of bad-arse soldier to be quite laughable, but they get some mileage out of it here. The fact that he uses brains rather than brawn is in-character. Usually, younger characters can be annoying, but yet again the young man playing Nog demonstrates that he is one of the better Trek actors and probably one of the more under-rated cast members.

Review : For such a good series, this is a very disappointing episode. To be honest, I can never get past Star Fleet's piracy. I don't know what else to call raiding another government's property to steal their hardware. What's even worse, no one in Star Fleet seems to be bothered by this. Of course, they would be the first to pursue piracy AGAINST the United Federation, to the death if necessary. Doesn't anyone else think this is hypocritical?
