Cardassian resistance and Ferengi principles
29 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode follows two main story lines, one involving the fall and rise of the Cardassian resistance which is fairly dark which contrasts nicely with the amusing tale of Quark getting a message from the Grand Nagus telling him that he is standing down and wishes him to take over. When Damar, Kira and Odo attempt to join up with other resistance units they find out they have been betrayed and the group they planned to meet are being killed by the Jem'Hadar, luckily they aren't caught themselves but are forced to go into hiding. While there they see a report stating that all of the resistance leaders including Damar are dead. This gives them the opportunity to prove to the people that he is still alive and fighting by attacking a Jem'Hadar barracks; it might not be a major target but it is enough to show that the dominion lied and encourage to general population to rise up. Realising the war isn't going too well the resident Founder suggests that Dominion forces fall back to their core systems believing the Federation will not continue the fight if the Dominion ceases its attacks. Back on DS9 when Quark gets a message indicating he is to be the next Nagus he is initially pleased, until he learns that the old Nagus has passed a series of unferengi laws which limit the way people can do business and introduce such terrible ideas as taxation and workers rights.

The two story lines provided a nice mixture of drama and comedy, Quark's speech at the end is a classic. This episode sets things up nicely for the final confrontation between the Dominion and the alliance of Star Fleet, Klingons and Romulans.
