Cirroc Lofton's line (you know the one) still takes my breath away.

All by itself "DS9" always showed more progressiveness and more social conscience than the other "Trek"'s combined.

The story is a fanciful conceit, and a breather from the season's arc, but it still stands as "Trek"'s best address of racial issues, and also serves as a reminder that it's a little depressing that "DS9" is the least popular "Trek" in terms of syndication value and DVD sales.

If you don't know the show, this one is a good, arc-independent introduction. And if you do know the show, you will always remember falling off your chair when Cirroc Lofton said "that line."

This episode never places highly in fan polls, but it's one of the best.
