Yeah--poor Bacco is caught between a rock and a hard place.
On the one hand: she has the Breen--and by extention, their allies--calling for Ezri's head on a silver platter, or else
On the other
hand...she has the Chancellor of the Klingon Empire--which is legendary
for not taking any crap--demanding Ezri's acquittal...or else
Not a good week for Nan--to put it mildly.
Glad you're still loving it, my friend! I hope your problems all work out, for you.
