Trivia

The role of Senator Cretak was originally played by Megan Cole in "Image in the Sand" and "Shadows and Symbols". She was unavailable to reprise the role for this episode so the producers chose Adrienne Barbeau instead. See more »

Goofs

When Admiral Ross and Doctor Bashir are having their off record conversation at the end Ross incorrectly states Sloan was to be beamed away one second before the phaser beam hits him. This is incorrect as Romulans use disruptors. See more »

Quotes

Cretak: Our soldiers are professionals. They're here to fight, not to get drunk in Quark's.

Kind of boring, actually.
28 January 2015 | by 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.
