Ok, home sick (Bad back) so the best thing for me to do is lay down and relax. So...I have watched a LOT of DS9
This is a fan fave, and I can see why, unlike some other episodes from season one, this one just WORKS. Tosk is very alien, the makeup does not look awful, and O'brian episodes are generally good.
This is a just a enjoyable episode, even if I saw it a bazillion times. It really noteworthy as it really does not have a B-plot that I can ID, it is just Tosk and the hunters. And I enjoy how the actor used odd twitches to carry a sense that its not a human.

Vash and Q shows up, and Sisko Punches Q And there is a auction, and I really want this to stop.

First off, this does have modern relevancy as these days, grabbing folks and getting them across borders is standard operating procedure. It is a bit of a whodunit, but I can still enjoy it for Gregory Martin Itzin. Wonderful actor, and it meanders a bit before the big reveal. This is a good first time watch, but rewatching leaves it flat.
A lot of the first season has good ideas, but for whatever reason, just never truely takes off. However very little of it is dire, which is much better then TNG or VOY first seasons. That...and it bittersweet with the widow hoping Jazdia has a long life.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to some of the worst acting in all of ..of...startrek...
So Bashir is a jerk, they find a ship blowing up, the alien puts his mind into our good doctor, who attempts a hijacking, and the end of the day, everything is eliminated.
Yawn... and the guest star looks good under all that makeup. And we had the starfleet security guy who up. Kinda like a flat soda...just blaaa...

"Move Along Home"
Everyone HATES this episode, but it far from the worse, it is just ...silly. The plot line is silly, but not bad, Quark is playing a game, and some of the crew are playing it for real. Not the most exciting episode, but I liked it a lot better then the previous episode.

The Ferengi episodes where popular at the time, and really, and the grand Negas is not THAT bad. And it really sweet to see Jake Teaching Nog to read. It is actually a strong episode for Season 1 standards, as it works. And it gets some points for the godfather references. I happen to find it funny still, and this was supposed to be a funny episode.

Ok, my memory was that this was a Meh episode, but it was quite good. It is nice to have space combat and Odo using non-traditional tactics to beat them. And it has a ...sweet feel to the end.

I am still wonder how DS9 would of changed without shunting off the Kai who was a really cool character. However it does have a nice TOS feel to it, two parties at endless battles with no chance to win. It not great, but it not bad. And it shows that the writers are willing to make radical changes if they felt the plot needed it.

The episode reminds me of of a early TNG episode. namely, its a bad epsiode with a young cute costar (the dauphin is the TNG episode)
The main plot line of the storyteller with the story-beast. Is freaking bad. I mean, Meridian bad. But the Nog/Jake/Guest star role was better then it should. which saves it from complete failure.

if you ignore a major plot hole (why would they ruin a M class moon for enough energy that a simple replicated reactor could provide) I mean, if they said "Stripped mined to repair bajor" i could buy it a lot more.
However, Kira meets a cranky old man, who does not want to leave, and you have good acting. What is NOT to like?

"If Wishes Were Horses"
Deep inside this episode is a decent episode. However it never appeared. It was MIA. Though seeing Bashir's want of Jazdia is silly in a juvenile way.
But...Rumpelstiltskin. Let me barf.

This episode always kinda reminds me of a Babylon 5 episode, which has a alien probe causing problems, though admittedly, I like the Babylon 5 idea better.
And we have Troi's mom. I always remembered I could not stand this episode. But it was better then I remembered. It not bad, and there are some stinkers in Season 1, so this is a good season 1 episode, but a poor DS9 episode.

ok, this is a fun episode, seems like every trek wants to have a episode where everyone acts nuts. Thankfully, DS9 put it near the end of the first season, and not like TNG, which had it as one of the first episodes.
I must admit, the Clock thingy that Ben builds is nicely odd. Sadly it one of those episodes where you know first off what kinda happening, and you watch it unfold.
5.5 out of ten.
Two more episodes (and good ones) and I will finish season 1...
