    I love "Starship Down"- great early CGI effects, the scenes between Armin Shimerman and James Cromwell, Kira treating Sisko, Bashir and Dax reflecting on their past and Worf's first time commanding. Very well done.

    We finally have an episode in which Worf plays a major part and he’s a jerk. We did find something in this episode that we hadn’t seen before. The rest of the enlisted men in Starfleet. Miles must be hoarding them.

    I laughed out loud when Sisko, lying on the verge of a coma basically said, “nerys, can you stop praying over me? Finish your dumb story about three brothers selling their kava root instead.” Although I did like the end with Sisko taking her to a baseball game. These two have come a long way since Emissary.

    I really like this episode. The Worf/O'Brien scenes are great, as are the Quark scenes.
