Oh I totally forgot about the Jake and Nog storyline. Though I was dealing with a broken freezer last night so was a bit tired.
That should have been the episode really, I love those guys! I agree that Jake is far and away a more interesting character than Wesley. Crusher was an ill-conceived character from the get-go. He is super smart, saves the ship, the grown-ups around him don't listen to him... Ready to vomit now!
Jake is trying to help his friend inspite of Rom and Sisko's misgivings about their respective species is far more interesting and down to earth.
EDIT - Deep Fruit Nine?
