Quotes

Dr. Mora: I suppose it's all my fault. If I hadn't poked and prodded you so much, you may have grown up in a less forbidding disposition.
Odo: Something tells me, no matter what we do to that Changeling, it's going to have a more pleasant disposition than mine. It's just the way I am.

Odo's a daddy.
6 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, out of the blue Quark offers to sell Odo a dead Changeling. However, it turns out the blob of goo is alive-- and a baby. Now Odo is determined to raise it the right way--not poked and prodded and electrocuted to get it to learn to change shapes the way he was. However, unexpectedly the old Bajoran scientist who raised Odo shows up and insists on staying to watch Odo and the Goo's progress.

The other plot involves Major Kira and her troubles birthing. It seems that Bajoran women only give birth when they are totally relaxed (and it involves a lot of annoying 'music'). Soon, unfortunately, the tension levels rise and it looks as if she'll never have the baby for the O'Briens.

In some ways this was a touching episode--at least the Odo portions. I liked seeing so much emotion in the character and how this story played out for him. As for the O'Briens and the Major, this seemed more like annoying filler and I was glad this was the secondary plot. Overall, a mildly enjoyable mixed bag.
