I even took him to a baseball game in a holosuite once, and I never saw it! It's my job to be a good judge of character, and what did I do? Not only did I not see it, I put him up for a promotion.

Hello again, Mr. Eddington
7 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Several episodes ago, a semi-regular on this show, Mr. Eddington, turned out to be working covertly for the Maquis--a renegade group of former Federation crew members who are carrying out a guerrilla war against the Cardassians. Now in "For the Uniform" Captain Sisko is out looking for Eddington in order to bring him for justice. However, again and again, Eddington seems to outsmart them. I liked this part quite a bit. Unfortunately, Eddington talks about this pursuit of him as being like "Les Miserables"--with Sisko being Javert and Eddington as the innocent Jean Valjean. This part of the show seemed more forced--plus I think likening Sisko and his task to Captain Ahab in "Moby Dick". Regardless, it's a good episode but not a brilliant one-- with a resolution coming too quickly. I would have drawn it out another episode or two.
