Trekathon 296: Necessary Evil (DS9)

A crime committed during the occupation comes back to light as someone tries to kill Quark.

The first major episode to feature Odo, and it’s a great story. The flashbacks to the occupation are very well done, giving us the first look at what the station was like before. The actual mystery is a little light on, but that’s made up for by a great reveal at the end of the episode.

As an aside: compare the Quark in this episode with the one in Rules of Acquisition – they could almost be different people. One is whiny and erratic, the other a tough nosed businessman trying to get by. Why can’t we have more like this?

296 down, 441 to go.
