Honor Among Thieves
Overall Ep :
First Aired :
24 Feb 1998
Season Ep :
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 disruptor at Yint, the beam is a yellow phaser-style beam rather than a green disruptor-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.
Carlos Carrasco played Bahrat in Voyager's "Fair Trade", and two (different) Klingons in DS9's "Shattered Mirror" and "The House of Quark".
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.
