Goofs

When the station officers discuss Nog's dependence on Vic Fontane, Lt. Ezri Dax' insignia change position. In the first three shots of her, the full one is on the left side of the black one. In subsequent shots they take their correct position. (Normally the full insignia are to the right of the black ones, which are similar to the half-stripes used in the US Navy for the ranks of Lieutenant J.G. and Lieutenant Commander.) See more »

Star Trek has its moments, but how often. I can't say I've ever felt anything more strong in a Star Trek episode than the hug at the end of this one. They did good.
