Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four
They did go to the "O'Brien must suffer" well a little too often. But I can understand why. For a lot of people he is the character they can most identify with. Of the whole cast I think only maybe Jake is as sympathetic.
I don't know. I always empathized more with Odo or Bashir (in later seasons) than any other character, but that's just me.
