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.
Factoid :
The original plan was for Jake and Kira to be the ones who stumbled across the Valiant. This was changes when the writers realised that Kira would never have let the situation on the Valiant play out - she'd have taken command and forced everyone to head back to Federation space no matter what. So they changed it to Nog, who would be more easily pliable in that situation.

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.
