Quotes

Chief O'Brien: What's the matter?
Garak: Well, it's just that... Lately I've noticed everyone seems to trust me. It's quite unnerving, I'm still trying to get used to it. Next thing I know, people are going to be inviting me to their homes for dinner.
Chief O'Brien: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I promise I will never have you over.
Garak: I appreciate that, Chief.

Garak the psycho killer!
18 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The ship arrives at one of DS9's sister stations that had been abandoned by the Cardassians some time ago. However, the tricky Cardassians often like to leave things booby trapped, so Garak is along to help find any hidden problems. However, the trap left is totally unexpected--they'd left a couple Cardassians in stasis and released a chemical into the air that causes these guys to become killing machines when they awaken...which they soon do. While Garak is able to help them take out these guys, how are they going to stop Garak, as soon the drug begins to have an effect on him!

This is a reasonably interesting episode and you get to see a far different side of Garak. I would have loved to see what would have happened if one of Garak's victims might have been Dr. Bashir, as I wonder if their strong bromance would be enough to overcome the drug. Well worth seeing.
