Mondays are possibly my least favorite day of the week simply because they are so long. I have been going nonstop since about six o’clock this morning and I’ll hopefully be in bed in the next hour or so. I often think I should quit the evening job but the money is just too good to pass up and worth the long hours.

They soon convince the chief that they are not there to cause any problems and begin to help him with a mystery that has been plaguing the village. Apparently 22 people have disappeared over the last few months and no one knows where they have gone.

Of note is that Odo discovers that none of the villagers have ever left the valley area.

Meanwhile back on the station Kira interrupts yet another illegal business interaction of Quark’s. In the matter of a few hours Vedek Bareil is on the station to visit Kira and the two share a wonderful few days together playing ball and having romantic dinners for two. Quark is once again caught and Kira confronts him to thank him for having Bareil visit as it was very distracting.
The show features a wonderful guest turn from Kenneth Mars, most famous for playing the bumbling chief of police from Young Frankenstein.
