Storyline

It's very busy on the station and Kira hasn't even got time to read reports. Now Starfleet also requests a complete report on the computer calibration subroutine. When Bashir asks for a runabout that isn't available to get medical supplies, she snaps. Bashir notices she's overworked and orders her to rest. Not liking it all, her mood becomes better when she meets commander Will Riker from the starship Enterprise in the bar. He has three months of leave and is on his way to the pleasure planet Risa. She seems to really like him and only the thought of Bareil is holding her back. At the end of the next day she runs into him again and offers him a tour of the facility. Riker asks immediately if he can take a look at the Defiant. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Major Kira: The Maquis are terrorists, and the only thing terrorists care about is attacking the enemy. I know, I was a terrorist, and if I'd had this ship then... I would've destroyed Deep Space Nine. I would've hit the Cardassians so hard, they would've screamed for peace; but I certainly wouldn't have gone flying off into the middle of Cardassia on some wild goose chase!
Thomas Riker: I guess we're different kinds of terrorists.
Major Kira: No - you're trying to be a hero. Terrorists don't get to be heroes.

A great episode, for fans and non-fans
27 April 2012 | by (Lincoln, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Sometimes on this show, when they are working on a bad or mediocre script, the actors remind me of high school actors with a lesson or two. But when there is a good script, like this one, all the actors fall into place and you can see how good they really are. I assumed this episode was going to be just a treat for fans only, with a wink and a nod and the presence of Jonathan Frakes, from The Next Generation. But a person could enjoy this without any knowledge of Commander Riker.

The script builds with a movie-quality dramatic tension. It is a little cramped as a story, it doesn't quite fit into one episode, and you might find it slightly overdone. But it has a lot to recommend itself, with good straight action and lots of character nuances. If you're cruising episodes looking for some good ones, I'd pick this one. And I looked up the writer: it was Ronald Moore.
