Goofs

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 visits, where we see both Klingon and Cardassian ships with cloaking devices. See more »

Quotes

[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.

The last (thank goodness) of the alternate universe episodes.
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

One of the weakest recurring plots on "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" were the alternate reality episodes. While I adored the original show in this genre, "Mirror, Mirror" from the the original "Star Trek", doing so many follow-up episodes in this same alternate universe really, really was a big mistake. The episodes frankly became tiresome and they were basically lazy writing and kept the show from exploring newer and better story lines.

When "The Emperor's New Cloak" begins, the Grand Nagus has disappeared. Soon a CONFIDENT and ASSERTIVE Ezri Dax shows up and you know she's from the alternate reality. It seems her friends have captured the Grand Nagus and will kill him unless Quark gives them a cloaking device--which they lack in this alternate universe. Not at all surprisingly, the folks in the alternate universe turn out to be liars and users--and won't honor their agreement. Can Rom and Quark STILL manage to come out on top...and with the Grand Nagus.

This alternate reality episode is a bit better than most--which isn't saying a lot. You get to see some cute Ferengi antics and a passionate lesbian kiss. And, weirdly, Vic Fontaine (James Darren) makes an appearance outside the holosuite, as he's apparently real in the alternate world. Not terrible.
