Jake Is Lazy and Unproductive and Full of Himself
1 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a really inferior episode. If involves Jake and Nog trying to cheer Sisko by getting him a Willie Mays rookie baseball card. It reminds me of one of the MASH episodes where a series of deals is struck with an end in sight. The down side here is that Jake is quite stupid, taking advantage of Nog, who actually has ambition and drive, and has little to offer. Not worth the time.
