Up Up and Away

"The Ascent" Plot Summary:

Odo and Quark are stranded together on a cold, desolate planet, and find that they must work together to reach the device which is their only hope of rescue.


Quark and Odo quarrel. Quark and Odo bond. Quark and Odo say silly, out-of-character things for comic effect. I was so bored by this episode that I find I don't have much to say about it. If high adventure interests you, read the play K2, which doesn't resort to cheap character jokes to try to hold interest; instead it explores the real pain and nobility of fighting against nature. I had a hard time rooting for our heroes to win in "The Ascent."
