Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 01 E 04 A Man Alone

This episode provides examples of:

  • Clones Are People Too: As Ibudan finds out, killing his own clone still counts as murder.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Rom has a very different mannerisms and voice in this episode, much more in line with standard Ferengi attitudes.
  • Friendly Enemy: An obvious example as Quark defends Odo to some bar patrons questioning his motives.
    Quark: Nobody knows him like I know him. Let me tell you something, he's
an ill-tempered, over-bearing crosspatch. But he was no Cardassian collaborator. —>And he's no killer.
Patron: You're defending him, Quark? You're his worst enemy!"
Quark: Guess that's the closest thing he has in this world to a friend.
  • Latex Perfection: Ibudan's disguise.
  • Shut Up Gunshot: A mob gathers outside Odo's office after the changeling is implicated in a murder. One of the Starfleet security officers fires his phaser into the air a couple times to get their attention.
