Apparently O'Brien is supposed to be an idiot.
22 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I noticed that another reviewer felt that this was THE worst episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9". Well, this series had quite a few terrible shows (though on balance, most were quite good) and I would venture to say that there are several much more terrible episodes I can think of right off the bat! However, I agree that "Honor Among Thieves" is not a particularly good show.

When the show begins, O'Brien is in some other part of the galaxy because he's on an undercover mission. It seems that the dreaded Orion Syndicate has infiltrated Starfleet and because of that they need some outsider. What follows is much like a mobster film, with O'Brien becoming a made man and learning to over-identify too much with his new 'friends'.

Why wasn't this a very good episode? Well, while O'Brien is only on this mission a short time, he way over-identifies with his new friends and his reaction to their being arrested or killed (due to their own evil) is ridiculous and makes no sense. Up until then, I hadn't minded the show--but towards the end it just looked like it needed a re-write...badly.
