The kiss between Odo and Kira didn't go according to plan. Rene Auberjonois's makeup began to rub off on Nana Visitor's face because it ran on so long. Auberjonois later commented it was the most unsensual kiss he had ever experienced. See more »

Introducing Vic Fontaine!
20 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As this episode opens the senior staff apart from Sisko are on the holosuite listening to Vic Fontaine; a 1960's Las Vegas singer. Unlike other holosuite programs he knows that he is a hologram and is very perceptive about human relationships. Odo decides that he might be able to get some advice on how to let Kira know how he feels about her. On the holosuite Vic tries to help Odo with his confidence, getting him to join his band as the pianist. After his first performance Vic has a couple of chesty holograms complement Odo's playing prowess. He still worries about Kira who is on Bajor with the First Minister. Vic's next idea is to have a new singer perform; one who looks just like the Major. When Kira returns to the station Vic invites her to dine with Odo on the holosuite; the problem is he told Odo that he is going to be having a date with a holographic Kira, it all goes well until he makes it clear that he things she is a hologram leading to a rather awkward situation for both Kira and Odo. Of course in the end the two of them end up together, just as they should have.

This episode was a nice break from the war, James Darren is great as the holographic lounge singer, Rene Auberjonois put in a fun performance as Odo, it was nice to see him lighten up a bit and Nana Visitor positively sizzled as she sang 'Fever' while draped across Odo's piano. I'm not usually a fan of holodeck episodes but Vic's character is different as he knows what he is. The ending was great, just what I suspect most fans had been wanting to happen for some time.
