Enjoyable enough but very slight.

This is a not especially important episode when it comes to the plots. There are no fights with the Klingons, Founders or anything like that. Instead, it's one 'funny' plot and one to hide an actress' pregnancy.

When the show begins, there is an accident and Keiko's baby she's carrying will die---unless it's transferred to another uterus. Major Kira is on hand and agrees to carry the O'Brien spawn. This was done, incidentally, since Nana Visitor (Major Kira) was pregnant in real life and this strange plot was contrived to explain her girth through a few episodes. I think this resulted in Quark's heart growing two sizes that day.

The other plot involves Quark--meaning it's the 'funny' plot. It seems that he's been told by a doctor that he's dying (that AIN'T the funny part) and he's got to make arrangements soon, as he only has about a week to live. Little does he know that it's all a trap- -one that is pretty nasty. Fortunately, despite this, the show does have a touching ending--showing Quark that he does have friends after all.
