I love what happens to Quark in this one....
28 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Things are looking up in this episode--up for Quark and up for the alliance between the Federation, Klingons and Romulans. But, as I mentioned with several other reviews, it's a bit hard to rate these later episodes because they really are one long story--not the usual self-contained shows.

When this show begins, Quark gets a call from the Grand Nagus. It's pretty garbled and fuzzy but the guy tells Quark that he's coming to DS9 to appoint HIM the new Grand Nagus! Naturally Quark is thrilled but soon looses his excitement when he learns several things--one of which is that the constitution has been changed and Ferenginar is now a much more egalitarian and less greedy place...and Quark no longer knows if he even wants the job. There is MUCH more to this plot line but this alone is plenty of reason to see and enjoy this one.

As for the war, the Cardassian people are told a lie by their Dominion overlords that Damar is dead. He isn't--and he and his rebels are planning on making that well known. Can they manage to mobilize the Cardassian to rebellion?

The rebellion is important because the war has turned decided against the Dominion. They've withdrawn their forces out of Federation, Klingon and Romulan territory but they also are trying to consolidate their forces and take the Cardassians down with them if needed.

The show ends on a surprise...Casidy is pregnant.

All in all, a LOT happens in this one. It's very satisfying and among the best of the later episodes.
