    And I loved it! Starting with the scene Worf throws the alien off his seat and demands Quark pours him a glass of bloodwine and then he confronts one of the three Klingons sitting at a table behind him. I laughed about the alien thrown off the seat by Worf! I loved that!

    My favorite scene though is when Dax and Worf are in the runabout talking casually and privately among themselves. Then Quark busts in and Worf is like "What do you want?!" and he says he wants to see Dax, and he goes and sits to talk to her, rudely interrupting her conversation with Worf when it was still in progress, mind you! But Worf still kindly steps aside so they can talk casually and privately among themselves. Funny thing is, Quark asks for advice for hitting on Grizika. Worf likes Grizika too but she's Quark's ex-girlfriend! I like the advice Dax gave Quark and how even Worf chimed in, i can't remember what it was though off the top of my head without looking at this episode's script.

    This mini-storyarc of Quark being engaged in Klingon affairs is fun to watch! That includes when one of the other Klingons call him a coward after he's been defeated. I love this episode! This episode is why I'm a big fan of Quark.

    Just a joke but it's nice to see an episode that's not about him scamming his customers for once lol :biggrin:

    Poor Morn. I wish we could have seen the (very likely terse) apology later.

    I love the fact that Grilka came back. She wasn't your typical warrior Klingon, but she was still strong-willed and just really fun. This was also a really fun episode.

    It would have been neat if at the end of the series, they worked out a way for Quark and Grilka to get together. I mean: Sisko, a god. Worf, ambassador to Kronos. Martok, Chancellor. Garak, some high position on Cardassia. O'Brien, instructor at Starfleet Academy. Rom, Grand Nagus. What does Quark get? He gets to tend that miserable little bar for the rest of his life!

    I really like this episode as well. Surprised that Worf never mentions K'hlear to Dax. He has been with a Klingon woman before. I think the underrated stuff though is between O'Brien and Kira. I love they did a story that shows that just because your married that you might not develop sexual feelings towards someone else. I mean O'Brien was married and Kira was with Shakaar at the time yet these kind of feelings can just happen when you leaving with each other and you get to know someone better. Everything works from Quark listening in from outside their quarters, O'Brien feeling uncomfortable all of a sudden with the massage, especially when Keiko walks in and then Keiko doesn't realize the tension and encourages him to keep up the massage and you can tell from their faces that O'Brien and Kira both want be anywhere else at that moment. You got Odo catching on really fast when Kira defends "Miles" instead of "The Chief" when he is ranting about some engineering problem and also like Kira's "Get Out" to O'Brien in the Runabout at the end.

    Don't forget, K'ehleyr was half human. She was a better Klingon than Worf, but still not quite there.

    It's a fun episode, even if Quark's crush on Grilka comes out of nowhere. I'm also not sure where Jadzia gets off calling Grilka uptight and boring, when Grilka is one of the most chillax and humorous Klingons you'll met, though I guess she was just trying to get Worf to pay attention to her instead.

    Dax doesn't act surprised when she meets Alexander, so she definitely knows about K'elyhr. Whether she knows about her at this point is not clear. Whatever conversation probably happens off screen, and given Dax's attitude toward sexuality there's no way it would ever be an issue between them.

    Also being with K'elyhr is very different than courting Grilka. K'elyhr is a Federation diplomat who things Klingon tradition is silly, Grilka is the head of a noble house who cares very much about tradition.

    In The Visitor there's a future where Quark finally gets successful enough to get his own moon like he wants. I don't think Jake bringing his dad back would alter that timeline too much, Quark could still do OK. PLus after the war, the Cardassian professor he loved could come back to him (assuming she survived the conflict).

    Coincidentally, I just read a story called "... Loved I Not Honor More" that follows up on this story. Definitely worth checking out if you are a fan of the Grilka/Quark romance/business partnership.

    Even worse for poor Quark, Star Trek Online shows that Worf eventually marries Grilka.

    I enjoyed the scene where Quark catches Bashir shamelessly eavesdropping on Kira and O'brien. Bashir doesn't hide his disapointment very well when Quark tells him that Keiko made them stop fighting. No wonder Alexander Siddig couldn't believe Bashir was genetically engineered.

    I'm not getting what you mean," just because you're married you might not develope sexual feelings for someone else"
    If you're married you are not supposed to develope sexual feelings for some one else.
    Yours Not supposed to.

    Well if your married that doesn't mean you aren't going to find other women or men attractive. If you know the person you mind even develop deeper feelings. Not everyone acts on those feelings of course but I suspect many people have moments where they want to. People don't cheat because they love someone and value that or maybe sometimes because they don't feel they can get away with it. Depends on how good the person is and also if your having some bigger issues with the person you are married to. The mindset I always found more disturbing though is the one Chris Rock once mentioned in one of his stand up shows. That some guys are only as faithful as his options. Strikes me as someone who shouldn't be married and most likely just did it like I suspect lots of people do and that is they don't want to be alone so they settle.

    That's kind of silly, in my opinion. Of course you'll still feel attraction to others sometimes, it's silly to say you're not supposed to. What you're not supposed to do is ACT on them.
