Referencing a previous episode in which Jadzia Dax is in bed with her right leg and foot showing skin: Trills have spots that start at the forehead and go all the way down to the toes. In this episode, Ezri Dax is seen in a short skirt wearing transparent nylons; there are no spots on her legs. See more »


Captain Sisko: You want to know... you *really* want to know what my problem is? I'll tell you: Las Vegas 1962, that's my problem. In 1962, black people weren't very welcome there. Oh sure, they could be performers or janitors, but customers? Never.
Kasidy Yates: Maybe that's the way it was in the real Vegas, but that is not the way it is at Vic's. I have never felt uncomfortable there, and neither has Jake.
Captain Sisko: But don't you see? That's the lie. In 1962, the civil rights movement was still in its infancy. It wasn't an easy ...

Proof that Vic should have been used VERY sparingly...and that the series had about reached the end of its run.
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

During the course of the last couple seasons of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", there were quite a few episodes which showed that the writers were grasping at straws--trying to come up with new ideas when the well had run dry. A few good examples was one show where the DS9 baseball team played a Vulcan team in the holodeck, a crime detective show featuring Ezri Dax and her alter-ego as well as this show which is a spoof of the old film "Oceans 11". Perhaps sticking with the Dominion and Prophets plots would have been wiser in hindsight.

Bashir and O'Brien are doing what they love to do--hanging in the holosuite with Vic. However, suddenly something strange happens-- the club where Vic performs is taken over by mobsters AND the crew cannot just delete the mobsters from the program---they need to be more creative. So, they come up with a variation on the film "Oceans 11" and a group of crew members help Vic to seal the mobster's money--so that his bosses get mad and kill him.

Does this sound the least bit like any of the "Star Trek" shows? Nope. And the entire show comes off as very forced and a bit stupid. Easy to skip and, fortunately, the last episode like this in the series.
