Zek tells Quark that the Alliance will release him only if Quark can secure a ship's cloaking device, claiming that they don't have cloaking technology in the Mirror Universe. This is inconsistent with what is shown in several previous Mirror Universe-related episodes, where we see not only Klingon ships with cloaking devices, but also Cardassian ships as well.

[first lines]
Quark: [observing Dax and Bashir in an animated conversation] Have you ever seen anything so disgusting? The way he's undressing her with his eyes... And look at his hands!
Odo: What about his hands?
Quark: His gestures, they're obscene. You should arrest him.
Odo: You're joking.
Quark: He's pitiful. Doesn't he realize she loves me?
Odo: I don't think he does. To be honest, I don't think she does either.
Quark: Thanks for your support.

Another visit to the alternate universe
13 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Normally when I realise an episode is going to be centred on the Ferengis I expect that what follows will be an inferior episode which is full of less than amusing comic situations, thankfully this one was better than that.

As the episode starts Quark is complaining about the doctor getting friendly with Ezri and he is upset when the two leave together. Later he thinks his luck has improved when Ezri turns up at his room looking very sexy... this however is not Ezri Dax but Ezri Tigan from the alternate universe and she is claiming the the Ferengi leader, the Grand Negus has been captured there and if they want him back they must provide provide them with a cloaking device. Quark and Nog manage to steal one off a visiting Klingon ship but when they get to the alternate universe it becomes apparent that the deal they made won't be honoured and that the people there seem to betray each other whenever they think it will serve their purposes.

This was a fairly entertaining episode, it was particularly amusing when Quark and Nog taunted the alternate universe's Garak about how his interrogation skills were feeble compared to the Garak back on DS9. It was also a bit of a surprise to see Ezri and Kira share a kiss; even if it was just their alternates. Nicole de Boer was great in the role of Ezri Tigan she demonstrated that she can play sexy parts as well as more restrained characters like the Ezri we are used to.
