  • First real stinker of season one.

    There had been a few medicore episodes of DS9 up till this point in the first season, but this is the first episode that really sticks out in your mind for being both weird and really not that interesting. Is that actually a point in it's favour that you can actually remember it as a medicore episode where there are others that you cannot even recall a vague plot aspect...maybe.

    From the annoying words used within the game itself (Allamaraine, Allamaraine, Allamaraine) to the tacky set pieces used as a visualization of the in-game world, the whole concept comes off as cheap and tacky. Some of the tasks that the DS9 crew had to master within the game to proceed further, such as the impossible task of just drinking the champagne from the glasses, are just plain stupid and leave you scratching your head with their missing point. In the end learning that despite all of these short comings the crew was actually in no danger kind of just cheapens the whole thing to an even greater degree.

    The only real hilight of the episode is the great Quark being discovered as a cheater and trying to weasel his way out of paying for it as well as when he breaks down in tears and begs to avoid making the "tough" decision of which path the crew are to take within the game.
