as much as i usually love the Quark/Odo dynamic, this episode didn't really do much for me. the banter is much better in small doses, i guess. that last scene might make up for it, though. plus, the Jog B-story is just kinda there.

and that's it for that. i wonder if this is gonna change Quark and Odo's attitudes toward each other at all going forward. they seem to be just as adversarial as they always were, there at the end. but maybe a bit more... exuberantly so?

okay, watching s5e10, The Rapture

Sisko is plagued by life-threatening visions that may hold the key to Bajors future.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-xq57eKXrU&list=PL06F0704CD92578F3&index=10

gotta say, the whole Bajoran prophecy and political infighting stuff isn't exactly my favorite part of the show...

is his combadge in the wrong place? i didn't notice lol

and i did notice the uniforms, but i didn't say anything cuz i wasn't sure if they had been changed this episode or if they had already been changed and i missed it lol. i do remember seeing them before, and that kinda confused me, but iirc it was in one of the TNG movies where they had to repurpose the DS9 costumes?

She's kind of not wrong in this case. Preserving Bajoran culture would have been extremely important. And I don't imagine Winn would have been much help as a terrorist anyway.
