I'll go with "Valiant" and I doubt anybody will have much of a problem with it. What a ridiculous premise.
Thank you, I hate that episode. Was RDM setting up Red Squad to be sympathetic? If so, I never bought it. Their deaths were satisfying.
And Jake, a writer with no military training or experience, was the only person on the whole ship with enough brains to be like "dudes, this is really stupid."

Honestly, I think the episode was supposed to showcase Nog's struggle between his own career aspirations and knowing to do the right thing. In that way it succeeded I guess, but it's just what you said. By the end of the show everybody watching is rooting for the Jem'Hadar to whoop their asses.
