  • The Space Station tries to survive a Bajorian virus.

    Very simple episode, this was very evident of the first season a lot of simple episodes that were entertaining.

    Miles is being worked to death and as he is working on a couple of replicator units the mechanism next to it renders a virus that makes human speech unrecognizable. Eventually the virus leads to death as well from a form of high fever.

    This is one of these episodes as well that probably did not require a huge portion of the budget as most of the cast mainly had to speak gibberish and act confused to sell the virus.

    Odo and Quark are immune for the most part to the virus so it's funny to see Odo needing Quark's help "Do I detect a hint of panic". Apparently the virus was installed long ago before the station was rebuilt from a prison of sorts thereby making it undetectable.

    A decent episode overall.
