Goofs

There are Cardassian containers in the cargo bay when Odo and Kira. This takes place after Cardassia joins the Dominion. It's unlikely that these crates would still be shipped to a Federation station. See more »

An inconsistent characterization
18 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"A Simple Investigation" is a sub-par episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9". I say inconsistent because throughout the series, Odo has been the epitome of professionalism as the head of station security, however here he really, really lets his guard down--and all because of a pretty woman who is clearly a serial liar.

Odo meets Arissa near the beginning of the episode. This stranger complements him and clearly is trying to ingratiate himself towards him. Later, Odo learns that she has some involvement with the dreaded Orion Syndicate. However, she bats her pretty eyes and acts like she's a damsel in distress--and Odo seems to fall all over himself believing this crazy story. Eventually, Odo wakes up to the reality that she is NOT prime girlfriend material, and Odo's rebound relationship just isn't meant to be.
