^ I think it was Nog's idea. Nog did it as a favor to Vic, who helped Nog cope with his injuries from the war.

That's my recollection as well.

Re: Vic Fontaine

I hate Badda Bing Badda Bang: it is stupid beyond belief in a multitude of ways, and totally pointless. Wost of all, it is a complete waste of an episode slot that could have been much better-spent telling a meaningful story.

I love Vic Fontaine: he was great.

"His Way and "It's Only A Paper Moon" are both two of the very best episodes of DS9, because it took a character who was an outsider to the station - Vic - to develop Odo and Nog in ways that the regulars of the station could not.

It's too bad Vic wasn't patterned after Robert Palmer or David Byrne or Peter Gabriel. But no, they had to do Sinatra.
Of course they did, because Sinatra is the man.

I could never understand why anyone would hate Vic Fontaine. That's like someone saying "I hate fun", but suppose that's where the phrase "square" comes from. I find him to be a lot of fun, and I do enjoy Sinatra tunes a lot and it worked great for the DS9 characters. For a bunch of folks going through war, you can't have a better place to kick back.

Oh. And for those Trek fans who bitch about Vic Fontaine, here's a song for you:

Re: Vic Fontaine

Forbid the concept that likes and dislikes are subjective. They're certainly not tied to one person's opinion and if anyone doesn't share it are open to ridicule like square, hating fun and bitching.
