A better episode than people think it is. It's a great episode for Quark and, especially, Rom.

I hate that episode. I'll put it in my top five worst Ds9 episodes and my top 10 worst star trek episodes ever.

Re: Retro Review: The Emperor?s New Cloak

It's a fun episode. Cool things:

*Quark and Rom carrying the cloaking device was brilliant
*Rom's line "Who's President of the Federation? Morn?"
*Rom pointing out the two O'Briens are similar and that the MU isn't that alternate
*Quark's prayer to the Blessed Exchequer.
*Mirror Ezri and Leeta.
*Mirror Brunt
*Mirror Vic Fontaine. He's real. Somehow.
*Quark comparing the MU Garak unfavorably with "our" Garak
*Regent Worf tearing his chair out of its base

The bad:
*Intendant Kira probably should have died; she did kill Brunt.
*The reuse of the battle sequence from "Shattered Mirror"

Quark is a very good character but I can't stand Rom. He's so annoying. One of the most terrible things they did was his interaction with Leeta, a character even worse than him, if that was possible.

Re: Retro Review: The Emperor?s New Cloak

It was definatly one of the weaker MU episodes, as for cloaking devices, we had already seen them used in an earlier MU episode so why did they need one? Just one of those plot holes we are expected to overlook.

Re: Retro Review: The Emperor?s New Cloak

The ships decloaking in "Through the Looking Glass" is such a short FX scene, its not a big deal that the writers forgot.

Re: Retro Review: The Emperor?s New Cloak

^But it's still a plot hole, when all you had to do was change a line or two of dialouge and say "instead of them not having them" to "That due to the Defiant the Terrans are now able to see through the Alliance cloaks and they need the more advanced ones from our universe" or something along those lines.
