Most of those scenes were rather unnecessary, but I like the scene were Maxwell strolls onto the bridge and sees Macet.
It never occurred to me until now, but we never see Maxwell interact with a Cardassian face to face in the episode. It's a really nice moment, without doing a whole lot.
I like the line about Maxwell always wanting to command a Galaxy class ship too. A nice little reminder that Picard's command is almost certainly the envy of other captains. ("Tin Man" touched on this with Captain DeSoto).
