Poor, poor Worf. He questions why they can't just give the equipment to the Pakleds, and after he gets shot down, he questions the logic of sending the chief engineer, and he gets shot down again. Turns out it was a trap, and the Pakleds know what they're doing. Riker is a suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucker. Why wasn't Troi on the bridge in the first place? She obviously would have been useful here.
I don't remember if Worf had the chance to gloat, but he should have pointed out that his caution was correct.
This episode is dumb, but not so bad because ultimately it set up Tapestry.
