Honor Among Thieves

Review

Series : Deep Space Nine Rating : 2
Disc No : 6.4 Episode : 138
First Aired : 24 Feb 1998 Stardate : Unknown
Director : Allan Eastman Year : 2374
Writers : Philip Kim Season : 6
Guest Cast :
Brad Blaisdell as Yint
Carlos Carrasco as Krole
John Chandler as Flith
Joseph Culp as Raimus
Leland Crooke as Vorta
Michael Harney as Chadwick
Nick Tate as Liam Bilby
YATI : I know it was necessary for the plot, but doesn't it seem a little unlikely that O'Brien could penetrate the ultra-secretive Orion Syndicate and get invited straight onto their most secret plan within a matter of a few days?

Bilby says his Starfleet contact was in charge of Risa's weather control system last year. Why is Starfleet in charge of a planet's weather control system? Shouldn't that be a civilian thing?

When Bilby fires the Klingon disrupter at Yint, the beam is a yellow phaser-style beam rather than a green disrupter-style beam. And we can't argue that the repairs altered the beam frequency, because the whole point of using them was to convince people that Klingons had been behind the assassination.

Great Moment : Nick Tate does a great job as Bilby, a man who is a bad guy without being stereotypically Evil.
Body Count : Yint is murdered by Bilby. Bilby is murdered at some point, though we don't see it.
Factoid : Carlos Carrasco played Bahrat in Voyager's "Fair Trade", and two (different) Klingons in DS9's "Shattered Mirror" and "The House of Quark".
Quote : "I'm going to take care of you. I don't forget my friends. Cause friends - they're like family. Nothing's more important. Nothing." - Bilby to O'Brien.

Plotline

O'Brien makes a new friend when he goes undercover to penetrate the Orion Syndicate for Starfleet Intelligence. But his duty requires him to betray the man when the time comes to turn them all in to the authorities.
