Wow...the Jem'Hadar really are warlike jerks down deep!, 20 December 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

Jake is dating a 20 year-old Dabo girl with extremely large...well, you can guess. Naturally, his father is not thrilled by this but instead of telling Jake no, he invites the lady for dinner.

The main plot, however, is a lot less mundane and creepy. A baby is discovered among the wreckage of a ship that Quark has bought. The child grows VERY quickly...and soon he grows into a Jem'Hadar killing machine. Not surprisingly, the crew isn't thrilled but Odo decides to take the young killing machine under his wing. But try as he might to learn about the deeper person buried within, this Jem'Hadar seems even more one dimensional than Nancy Grace. With this unnamed Jem'Hadar, it's kill, kill, kill. In fact, he makes the Klingons seem like deep thinkers and pacifists! What's next?

While the episode is mildly interesting, there's really not much more to it than this.
