Trekathon 316: Profit and Loss (DS9)

March 17th, 2012

Quark’s old flame turns up, with the Cardassians in pursuit.

It’s another fairly flat episode, that while not compelling provides some good moments of character interest. It’s a very Quark heavy episode, and it provides a bit of insight into him, but they never quite bridge the gap back to the Quark that we’re used to seeing.

The other point of interest in this episode is good old ‘plain and simple Garak’. It deepens his character a little bit, and establishes a little more clearly that there’s more to him than it seems, but it also fails to make him any more interesting a person to watch.

Overall just a middling hour of television, with not much to praise or protest.

316 down, 421 to go.
