Did You Know?


Nog's description to Chief O'Brien of "The Great Material Continuum" as a river on which all the goods of the universe flow to where they are desired is a description of the classical liberal economic theory - especially of the Austrian School of Economics. Enlightenment philosopher Adam Smith described the free migration of goods to where they are wanted as "The Invisible Hand". Austrian economist F.A. Hayek referred to goods intelligently (but without fore-planning) migrating to where they are wanted as a prime example of the principle of spontaneous order arising out of the free activity of multitudes of people.

Nog: I'll try.
Chief O'Brien: Nog!

Defection and acquisition
5 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a couple of stand alone episodes we return to the war with the Dominion when one of Odo's contacts get in touch with him requesting a meeting. Even though it was believed this contact had been killed Odo decides to take a chance and meet him. When he gets to the meeting place he learns that it was set up by one of the Weyoun clones who claims that he wishes to defect something another Weyoun and the Cardassians are determined to prevent.

While this is going on we have a more light hearted story taking place back at DS9 where Capt. Sisko has ordered Chief O'Brien to fix the Defiant in three days even though the part they need will take three weeks to acquire from the stores, overhearing these orders Ensign Nog offers to use his natural Ferengi trading skills to get one from another ship that has a spare, these trades involve borrowing the Captain's desk and some Klingon blood wine which causes some distress for the chief who's name is on all the paperwork.

This episode was a nice blend of humour and action, it also gave us insight in to the origins of the Vorta and why the worship the Founders. It introduces the story line about the illness is effecting the Founders.
