Storyline

Much to his dismay chief O'Brien is ordered by Sisko to escort Bashir to a Bajoran village. He is to help out with a medical emergency that endangers the entire community. After arriving there's only one person sick, the Sirah. He seems very pleased with the arrival of O'Brien and designates him as 'the one'. It soon becomes clear the Sirah is the only person capable of defeating the Dal'Rok, a terrible monster that attacks every year after the harvest and doesn't show up on tricorder. Meanwhile on DS9, Sisko tries to negotiate between the Paqu and the Navot, two rivaling Bajoran factions. Ninety years ago they agreed to a river being the border between their lands, but after the Cardassians diverted the river, Paqu territory became bigger. The leader of the Paqu, Tetrarch Varis Sul, is a young girl and Nog and Jake try to impress her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

When Nog throws Odo the bucket, Odo catches it with its opening towards him. Yet although it was full of oatmeal only a minute earlier and should still have some residues in it, not the slightest drop is spilled onto Odo. See more »

I liked it
24 March 2020 | by brueggemanntamiSee all my reviews

I read the other reviews and I disagree. I enjoyed how it showed character development plus the strength of friendship and compromise. And I certainly don't understand why everyone is so down on Jake and Nog. I get a kick out of them. True friends, despite all the odds against them. This was not an action driven episode. Both stories were about relationships. You don't have to blow things up to make a point. And it's alright to be a little bit lighthearted once in awhile.
