YATI : In this episode, Vreenak claims that Sisko is or has been a captian, Emissary, widower, father, and mentor. Who exactly has Sisko ever been a mentor to?

Personally, I find it a bit hard to understand what Sisko does that is so terrible in this episode. Okay he bribes Quark, but he has bent the law numerous times before for the Ferengi. He is an accessory to several killings, but he doesn't even know about them until after they happen! And he does get clearence from Starfleet for the operation - we've seen before that Starfleet is willing to authorise lethal force against others on intelligence missions. Picard and co. killed several Cardassians in "Chain of Command" during an invasion of Cardassian territory, for instance. Okay Sisko's actions may be a little less than spotless, but they hardly seem like the great moral burden around his neck that he makes out they are.

Great Moment : Sisko's claims that he can live with himself, when it's clear that he is having trouble doing just that.
Body Count : The alien forger, plus the crew of the Romulan ship. We should probably include a number of Dominion and Romulan soldiers who would have died when the Romulans attacked the Dominion.

Plotline

Captain Sisko, sickened by the constant carnage of the war, decides to try and trick the Romulans into joining the Federation-Klingon alliance. He enlists Garak to help, but soon finds that he must leave his principles behind if he wants to win through.
