Storyline

A heavily damaged Cardassian ship approaches the DS9. On board's professor Natima Lang, and 2 of her students. She wants to leave as soon as possible, and to avoid problems with the Bajorans, When Lang enters Quark's bar, he seems very happy to see her. The feeling's not mutual; rhe 2 had once been in a relationship, and now, Quark tries everything to get back into her favour. When the 3 Cardassians see Garak they turn to leave. In the meantime, the crew of Deep Space Nine find out Natima's shuttle wasn't damaged in a meteor storm as she had told them, but was hit by Cardassian weapons. Natima tells the DS9 crew they're part of a movement which wants to remove the military from the government, and they're now fugitives, and on the run. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Can't Help Loving That Ferengi of Mine
8 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Quark and his former lover, a Cardassian woman, meet when she, as a rebel, comes to the station, riddle with Cardassian "bullets." Quark is ready to give up everything to rekindle their romance. I guess my unfair appraisal has to do with their relatively unattractive presences. Of course, it's all in the eye of the beholder. Garak returns, playing a major role, speaking in metaphors and illusions. Great character.
