Trivia

This is Jeffrey Combs' (Weyoun) favourite episode. He enjoyed having to play two completely different Weyouns. One who is loyal to the Dominion. And one who is considered defective because he sees things as they really are. See more »

There is no liquid at all in Legate Damar's glass, but the inside of the glass is simply painted green, the color of the drink he supposedly poured into it. See more »

Quotes

Chief O'Brien: What do you think?
Doctor Bashir: It's white.
Chief O'Brien: I know it's white. I'm gonna paint it.
Doctor Bashir: It's the wrong shape... It's the wrong height, the wrong width, other than that it is perfect. The Captain will never suspect you switched desks on him.
Chief O'Brien: Julian, I need your help, not sarcasm.
Doctor Bashir: I'm afraid Nog is the only one that can help you now.
Chief O'Brien: If he gets back to the station before the Captain does.
Doctor Bashir: Maybe he's not coming back. Maybe he's decided to make a run for it.
Colonel Kira: [enters] That isn't the Captain's desk!
Doctor Bashir: He's gonna paint it...

A Vorta who wishes to defect?!
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot to this episode is very surprising. After all, the Vorta are slavishly devoted to their gods, the Founders. However, oddly, one of the Vorta, Weyoun 6, has defected--something you'd never expect from these sycophants. When Odo meets him, the Vorta begs to be given sanctuary--and the rest of the episode is a rush back to Federation space with this strange Vorta. But why? Why defect? And, what secret does he hold about his beloved Founders--one that other Vorta don't even expect?!

In addition to this main plot, there is a minor plot. When Captain Sisko demands that O'Brien does the impossible, Nog intervenes and through a long series of trades, arranges to have spare parts available to O'Brien so that he won't disappoint his commander.

The plot involving Nog and O'Brien is very slight. However I really liked the one involving the Vorta and you learn a lot about them and what makes Weyoun 6 different. A truly interesting episode.
