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)

Great beginning, horrible ending

This should have been at least a 2-part episode. It began brilliantly and all was fine until the end. Then...it was like magic. Suddenly, Tom Riker just changes his mind. Yes, I understand the so-called psychology of his decision. It's BS. Totally and utterly BS. And his "crew" just obeyed like good little Star Fleet crew members, instead of rebel Maquis.

As I said, if this had been a 2-parter...or even multiple parts, it would have been excellent. Gul Dukat looks like a ninny in this episode. There's nothing in this episode, other than the basic concept and the opening few sequences that are redeeming. Pitiful.
