YATI : So the Federation wants an alliance with the Ferengi... and they send Nog? Ensign Nog? Imagine if the USA wanted an alliance with somebody and they sent a junior officer barely out of training. It would be a huge diplomatic slap in the face. A senior diplomat should be making this kind of overture.
Great Moment : The loss of the Valiant. It's always sad to see a Starship go down in flames, and this was gorgeously staged.
Body Count : Quite a few of the Valiant crew. Probably quite a few on the Dominion ship, as well.
Quote : "You don't understand because you've never put on one of these uniforms. You don't know anything about sacrifice or honour or duty or any of the things that make up a soldier's life. I'm part of something larger than myself. All you care about is you." - Nog to Jake.

Plotline

Jake and Nog are picked up by the USS Valiant, a Defiant class ship which has been stranded behind enemy lines for months. With the regular officers dead, a group of Cadets are running the ship. But when their Captain decides to launch an attack on a Dominion super-battleship, Jake begins to wonder if he's leading them all to destruction.
