Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
An El-Aurian opens up a rival bar that steals Quark’s customers with an odd little game. The problem is the A-story isn’t as fun to watch as the B-story. The B-story involves a racquetball rivalry between O’Brien and Bashir. The O’Brien/Bashir story is a big step in building their friendship, which eventually is one of the best friendships in all of Trek.
Mostly it is average to mediocre, it doesn’t thrill or have that great a story, but I like the relationships that build with Julian and the Chief.
