Intelligence reportI sometime wonders at the gullibility of some of the characters in Star trek, as they always seem to accept what strange beings say at face value, or is it just that I am paranoid?
Anyway, this little tale of mystery and intrigue is intriguing and mysterious, with an escalating dramatic line that makes it worth watching.
Of course it's all based on the best known non-speaking character in the Star trek pantheon, and one of the biggest in-jokes in the television industry (the one that non-speaking extras are paid significantly less those who make any kind of noise, and Morn is continually referred to for his (off-camera) volubility). And if you needed to have that joke explained to you then you wouldn't find it funny.
But it's a good episode, easily worth watching.
