A Simple Investigation, Business as Usual, Ties of Blood and Water, Ferengi Love Songs

A SIMPLE INVESTIGATION

Odo starts dating a woman.

Weak episode. Acting is good but it barely held my attention. This Orion Syndicate stuff needs to be plotted more carefully. It feels very haphazard.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

Quark becomes an arms merchant.

Not my favorite episode but it sure was intense to watch. The “villains” who were Quark’s bosses were well cast. It’s funny how in episodes like this when you don’t have Starfleet personel in primary roles everything feel so much less safe. What DS9 has done well is made the galaxy feel very real with lots of shadows and nooks and crannies where Starfleet doesn’t have time to be.

I liked Quark’s way out of it – get everybody in the a room together and let them kill each other – smart.

TIES OF BLOOD AND WATER

Kira reunites with her surrogate Cardassian father.

I fell asleep. Honestly. I fell asleep. I never falls asleep while watching TV. Menh.

FERENGI LOVE SONGS

Quark’s mom is dating the Grand Nagus.

I suppose that what they were going for after the emotional intensity of the previous episode was some comedic levity. This one didn’t connect with me either. Just felt a bit like two fairly inconsequential episodes back-to-back.
