Re: "In the Pale Moonlight'

DS9 has some very good stuff, and I think it achieved a better balance in terms of being political more gritty than the evolved "perfect" humans that were conceived for the earlier seasons of TNG. I believe that's one reason the series works, and one could easily argue that ITPM is the ultimate expression of that - Sisko has to go into some morally dubious territory out of desperation to win the war, and do things he'd never do otherwise. Garak doesn't interact with Sisko nearly as often as with other characters, but here the two really fit together. Also, I've always rather liked the scene where Garak tells Sisko that all of his contacts were killed off within a day or so.
