Character development.

And people in the wrong places at the wrong times, like Disaster. This is always good, but it makes the non-regular characters look a bit weak. There's also a silly technobabble story (that drives the other plots), and a nitpick (Lwaxana and Odo in a locked and stuck turbolift move from turbolift 7 to turbolift 4; sure, it's a 47, but they can't be that desperate). And I knew Lwaxana would do that with her dress when Odo needed to regenerate. I'm getting far too clever for this show already.


Worth watching for getting to know the regular characters.
