Storyline

The Federation is helping the Bajorans to tap the molten core of the moon Jeraddo. This will provide much-needed energy for hundreds of thousands of Bajoran citizens, but will make the moon uninhabitable. All 47 known inhabitants have been evacuated, but Dax still detects one life sign. Major Kira Nerys beams down to investigate and meets three people, farmer Mullibok and two mute helpers. Mullibok invites her to dinner and makes it perfectly clear he has no intention of leaving. Although he is very stubborn Kira starts to grow fond of the man. Meanwhile Nog overhears his uncle Quark punishing his father for buying 5.000 wrappings of yamok sauce, loved by Cardassians but hated by the rest of the universe. Secretly Nog and Jake try to sell the stuff for bars of latinum. They contact a Lissepian trader, but he only has self-sealing stem bolts to offer. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

A quiet yet well done episode
7 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a story oft told - in the name of progress, an old farmer must be relocated from the homestead he has lived in his whole life. In this case, the homestead is located on a Bajoran moon that is to become a major mining operation. Major Kira is sent to remove him. Farmer Mullibok is a strong, stubborn, somewhat curmudgeonly old man who is also wise, and oddly endearing. Major Kira comes not only respect him but like him and thus becomes torn as to what it is her duty to do and what is the right thing to do. She and Sisko have a fascinating, albeit brief discussion about this issue. This is a very good character development episode for Kira but it is Brian Keith as Mullibok who steals the show. It is a magnificent performance; what a fine actor Keith was. We come to care about Mullibok but as so often happens, there is no happy ending. And this distresses Kira as much as it does Mullibok - and the viewer.
