30 Days of Trek.
5. Favourite Overall Episode.
I can’t even begin to try and answer this question accurately. I went my first instinct, and this episode incorporates all of my favourite things about Deep Space Nine.
So basically Kira, Dax, Bashir, Garak, and Dukat, all get locked in ops together. And Odo and Quark get locked in Odo’s office. What more need I say?
Oh right, yeah… So then we’ve got Garak and Dukat hating each other. And every time Garak speaks to him I can’t help but internally scream “YEAH YOU GO GARAK!” … We’ve got Dax doing science things, Kira being all badass with her Bajoran phaser, Bashir totally swooning over Garak, Garak being bitchy to Dukat, Dukat being a creep over Kira… then there’s Jake being a hero, O’Brien vs. the station computer, Sisko Sr. also being a hero, Quark winding up Odo, but Odo winding up Quark up ten times more.
Plenty of Bashir/Garak to go around, and even some Kira/Dax if you’re looking for it. Dax needs Kira to give her a hand… ;]
In summary, this episode is spilling over with character interaction, and this is what I love most about Deep Space Nine. YAY.
