Story: Progress
Written By: Peter Allan Fields
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1993

This is a decent episode, even if it has some elements that mirror TNG’s “The Ensigns of Command”. Kira tries to help an old Bajoran man move from his endangered home, and he refuses. Eventually she comes up with a similar solution to Data’s, destroying his kiln. But it is simple and well acted, which makes it successful.
On the station, Nog and Jake attempt to sell some condiments for a profit. It is a decent storyline in terms of developing their friendship, but it isn’t that interesting. The A-story is definitely the only real reason to watch this one, even if it is a rehash of a TNG script.
