I finished episode 1 today. I enjoyed the plot, it was interesting and complicated enough to keep me reading and reading and reading
But sometimes I had an impression things were going too easy. Something killed an officer, so the other one put his hand recklessly and... got killed at once too. He wasn't very smart, was he?
And Nog lying straight to Ross's face? Oh my!
It felt a little bit out of character. He was a Ferengi, but the Academy trained him well, and I don't think he'd do that. He'd rather writhe under Ross's gaze, trying to cover Kira's plans
But beside these little things I really liked it and I surely will read the sequel
PS. I made up the same Cardassian name as you: Corak. I've given such name to a Gul in my story
