Review : No matter what you think of Section 31, this was a good story. The plot kept me guessing, and Koval's database made a very good red herring. I was convinced that it was the real objective, and Bashir was being set up to take the blame if they were caught. Spying is usually about information, not people. It's a bit hard to believe that Ross was involved in this, he never seemed like someone who would get involved with people like Sloan. Still, perhaps he was being manipulated as well. The idea of Koval being working for Section 31 may seem far-fetched, until you remember that the KGB nearly ran MI5 once. The Bellerophon was obviously a re-use of sets and stock footage, and I'm sure I saw 'OYAG' on the hull. Overall, a decent episode.

Review : An Intrepid class starship on DS9!! When we first saw the Bellerophon I completely forgot I was watching DS9 for a moment and was confused - I still laugh about this silly moment. It was very nice to see a DS9 crewman on the Voyager set and it reinforced my opinion that the Intrepid class, despite its apparent awkward profile, manages to be one of the most beautiful and modern-looking Trek ships. I have to say Graham's official review for this episode is a joke and the YATI is worthless - who said the holograms here are still images? Section 31 brings a much-needed touch of reality to the Federation. I sincerely believe that if there weren't hidden people conducting desperate, Delta Green-style operations, the Federation's naive and open attitude would see the entire Federation collapse under the weight of spies, espionage and alien aggression. Somehow, this point is never taken seriously in DS9, leaving S31 to be demonised. People say that Gene Roddenberry would never sanction this stuff, but let's face it, which gets better reviews, TOS or DS9?
