Kind of boring, actually.
28 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, the representative from the ultra-secret Section 31 (William Sadler) appears in Dr. Bashir's quarters while the Doctor is sleeping. It seems he wants Dr. Bashir to do some spying for them during his upcoming conference on Romulus. Naturally the Doctor is horrified, as he wants nothing to do with Section 31 but goes along with it to find out what these folks are up to. What follows is a whole lot of spy stuff--and the viewers are left wondering what the $%@@ they are watching. By the time the show is over, it isn't much more clear and you may just feel that the entire effort was a bit of a waste of time.

This episode is very unusual because it is all Dr. Bashir all the time. You don't get to see the rest of the DS9 crew and how much you enjoy all this might have a lot to do with how much you enjoy Dr. Bashir as a character and if you enjoy all this spy stuff. I didn't on both accounts.
