Following a mission to the Parada system, O’Brien begins to notice a change in the behaviour of the crew… and he begins to suspect some unknown influence maybe at work…

The Trekzone Review

O’Brien must suffer, a recurring gag from the writing staff that just works because our Chief is such a human character… he isn’t a ‘career officer’, he isn’t perfect in every detail, he makes mistakes and that’s what makes him – to me – the best character in Starfleet.

While the writer felt that the episode came up short because of the need to stick to the Chief, I don’t think that was a major downfall… we’re drawn in to him and wonder what the hell is going on…
