Re: Anyone here who HATES "in the pale moonlight"
^^^Possibly. But if so, then all that was required was the assassination. It is surprising some enterprising Romulan politician didn't beat Garak to the punch. Regardless, although this rationalizes some of the episode's political absurdities, it also renders the entire plot about falsifying intelligence completely irrelevant.
No. Because Sisko and Garak wouldn't be privy to every internal mechanization of the Romulan government.
