Enjoyable light relief
22 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As season five draws towards its conclusion we get a more light hearted episode. As everybody is feeling down due to the constant threat from the Dominion Jake decides that he must do something to cheer up his father and when he learns that there is a twentieth century baseball card amongst a boxful of junk that is going to be auctioned. There is just one problem; somebody else wants the box. After being outbid they approach the new owner to see if he will sell them the card. Luckily he wanted the lot for a different item but unfortunately he wants some items in return so that he can build a machine which he believes will let him live for ever. To get these Jake and Nog will have to provide services to most of the senior staff. All is going well till Weyoun is visiting the station for a meeting with Kai Winn gets suspicious of their activity along with that of the man they were dealing with; luckily some quick talking from Jake provides a solution and at the end of the episode everybody is happy... apart from Leeta who can't find 'her' teddy bear.

While not an action pact or exciting episode it was a lot of fun. I particularly liked that Weyoun actually took an interest in the mad scientist's machine. Early on in the series I wasn't keen on Jake and Nog but their characters have improved over the years.
