  • A Murder Mystery that's not a Mystery - but still good

  • One to watch.

  • The episode is memorable for one reason: Andrew Robinson's turn as a psychopathic killer.

  • Quotes (6)

    • Garak: (refusing to go with Boq'ta) I don't intend to stand around waiting to be killed! O'Brien: Meaning what?! Garak: Meaning I'm going after those two Cardassian soldiers and neutralize them. Besides, all this whining is giving me a headache!

    • O'Brien: You look different. That's not the face of a tailor. Garak: I'm not a tailor. Not for the moment anyway.

    • Garak: Asking a Ferengi to play a Cardassian game, is like asking a Klingon to chew with his mouth closed.

    • O'Brien: So, how did Captain Sisko convince you to come? Garak: How do you know I didn't volunteer? O'Brien: He threatened, didn't he? Garak: Nothing so coarse. The Captain bribed me.

    • Garak: Well, it's just that lately I've noticed everyone seems to trust me! It's quite unnerving, I'm still trying to get used to it! Next thing I know, people are going to be inviting me to their homes for dinner! O'Brien: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I promise I will never have you over. Garak: I appreciate that, Chief.

    Notes (2)

    • The racist term "spoonhead" used by Amaro was not in the script and wasn't meant to be heard. It was left in because it made the scene more real. This does go against Gene Roddenberry's view that Starfleet personnel would never act racist.

    • Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko) does not appear in this episode.

    Trivia (6)

    • This episode marked the first appearance of an environmental suit in Star Trek since theĀ TOS episode "Whom Gods Destroy".

    • Nitpick: While they are working, there's an awful lot of chatter, particularly after they all know that they are being hunted by psychotic Cardassians! A security crewman like Amaro would know better than to talk rather than listen for the enemy's approach.

    • Nitpick: The phaser rifle used in this episode uses a white light attachment to illuminate their way. What should have been used (and is used in the US army) is a red light. This will not affect ones' night vision.

    • Nitpick: Amaro says that he and Stolzoff were at the Academy together, but both were clearly shown to be enlisted crew members (no rank pips), and so never attended the Academy.

    • Goof: When the salvage team is discussing how to call for help after the runabout is destroyed, O'Brien tells Pechetti and Stolzoff to go to the Habitat Ring. However, when they are shown (and killed) they are working on the Promenade, which is part of the central core, not the Habitat Ring.
