  • I love Casablanca as well as the next guy. But this is pretty lame stuff.

    I wanted to like this, I really did. A Casablanca homage sounded like a whole lot of fun in theory...but this is just a mess. The characterisation and performances are extremely poor. In fact, Quark was so uncharacteristic as to be unrecognisable and I didn't care for Mary Crosby's performance as Quark's long-lost love one little bit. The 'romantic' scenes between the two are nothing short of cringe-worthy, featuring horribly cheesy dialogue and a painful lack of chemistry or authenticity. It all seemed so...false.

    The political dissident sub-plot is ultimately wholly unrewarding, although I suppose it does give us a glimpse into Cardassian society and reveals an element of revolt which will be expanded upon in subsequent episodes.
