Review : Now, this one was interesting. Garak and Odo, possibly the two most interesting DS9 characters, get plenty of screen time, which is excellent. As ever, Garak gets some very good lines. I initially thought he was being serious about eating the isolinear rod, and he manages to get very close to the truth about Odo's feelings for Kira. We get some idea about Garak's shady past as well, although we still can't be sure how much of it is true. I've never been keen on DS9, but this is one of those episodes I can watch again and again. If I get the chance to watch the next episode, I certainly will.

Review : The image of Odo in a cave, speaking to a shadowy Cardassian who we only see in silhouette or a creepy shot of his eyes, has stuck with me for eighteen years. Eighteen years? Has it really been so long? That image came to define DS9 to me: mysterious people slinking about in the shadows, orchestrating galactic events while up-front, compassionate people like Odo strive to bring evildoers to justice. As Odo and Garak constantly argue (or spar) throughout this episode, I realised how much better DS9 is than the other Treks. If the human characters had been allowed this freedom of emotion, Trek would be sensational - it would be really, really difficult to knock it. Come on, even Rick Berman was burned out writing neutral 24th century dialogue. Who ever gets burned out writing dialogue? That's ridiculous. Anyway, the episode is packed with imagery and excellent dialogue, so it's a winner from me.
