Goofs

Sisko suggests Kai Winn stall for time by telling Weyoun that she needs to consult with Bejor's Council of Ministers, but certainly any decisions about entering into treaties with the Dominion would be the responsibility of the civilian government, and First Minister Shakaar would be directly involved in negotiations.

Lions, Gigers and Bears .... Oh my...
19 September 2018 | by ghatbkkSee all my reviews

This is a really, really badly written episode. The quote that is the title of my review is a perfect example of the quality of writing engaged in by the writers. Skip this one. It has nothing to redeem it.
