O’Brien is Paranoid

Story: Whispers
Written By: Paul Robert Coyle
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1994

This is a solid episode that focuses on O’Brien feeling suspicious after his visit to some planet. Everyone is acting weird around him, not treating him like he is an equal, locking him out of security protocols, holding secret meetings. The whole crew, Jake, Keiko, Molly…everyone is not acting normal around the Chief of Operations.
It is a good episode, and Meaney gives a terrific performance. The twist at the end, that he is actually a perfect clone sent to disrupt the new planet’s meeting is pretty well executed as well.
