Episode propaganda

Over a drink at Quark's, middle-aged widow Alsia (K Callan), tells Martus (Chris Sarandon), how she plans to invest her life savings in a large mining concession. Just as Martus offers to become her partner, Odo arrives and arrests him - for swindling a couple on the station. Martus is locked in a holding cell and meets a sickly alien named Cos (Albert Henderson), who laments that he lost everything he ever had because of a gambling device that always brought him bad luck. He activates the device and exclaims with surprise that he won - and then dies without warning.

Intelligence report

One of those filler episodes, kind of like a dose of methadone to a heroin addict (and Trekkies are addicted to Star trek, aren't they?) Seven seconds of character development surrounded by technobabble problems waiting for technobabble solutions. Ho hum.

Watch it if you have a thing for Bashir in tight clothes.
