whoops, i guess i let the last thread purge. it has been a couple days since i watched an ep. oh well, it was nearing 500 posts anyway. and i'm getting back into the swing of things now, so it is on to the next episode, s4e15, The Bar Association

Tired of workplace mistreatment at the hands of his brother, Rom organizes all of Quark's employees into a union and goes on strike against the bar

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zAmkxnVf-g&list=PL48BA8BF295B52009&index=15

yeah, i'd say Quark had this one coming

Oh, shit, I think I tried to spoil this for you because I was 100% sure this scene happened in that episode where Worf ruins Odo's sting operation. I wondered why you didn't react to it.

Huh.

To my knowledge, Quark never hires anyone to replace Nog and Rom. Which implies he didn't actually need them. Which implies he gave them a job just because they're family.

i don't think i ever had a chance to watch it as a kid, but i do remember hearing about it and thinking nah, it's probably not gonna be as good as TNG, and that was that, lol.

i still like TNG better, but DS9 has been pretty good so far too.

The Klingon Empire accuses Worf of wantonly destroying a Klingon civilian ship during a battle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFHmhatxsGA&list=PL48BA8BF295B52009&index=17

the Klingons really have it in for Worf. i'm predicting this is gonna end up amounting to a kangaroo court type situation.
