Something always bothered me about this episode and after I watched it today I realized what.
It's the fact that the station still exists at all.
Why would the Cardassians abandon it, but leave it relatively intact? We know they pretty much gutted and sabotaged Terok Nor when they left it.
Now maybe the latter was just out of spite, but it seems like it would be standard procedure to retrieve as many assets as you could. And if you couldn't salvage anything, then self-destruct it. Why leave anything of value behind? And why leave people behind to guard it?
I'm not one to go around trying to poke plot holes in every episode but this seems a pretty glaring problem. Just doesn't make any sense.
