  • Fun, quirky characterisation - naff plot. A mixed bag.

    The seemingly endless plethora of TNG characters appearing in DS9's first season continues, with this rather odd episode, in which Vash arrives on DS9 determined to sell some artefacts, with the mischievous Q in close tow.

    Whilst Jennifer Hetrick is charismatic and entertaining as Vash and the ever-excellent John de Lancie is always watchable as Q, the 'plot' is brittle thin and ultimately wholly vacuous.

    There are some nicely humorous moments (mainly involving Quark and Vash) and Wolfe's script has a certain acerbic wit, but there's just too little substance to bind the whole thing together.

    It's wafer-thin and far too insubstantial to be satisfying.
