Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 04 E 13 Crossfire

First Minister Shakaar arrives on Deep Space 9 for a conference. And in between an assassination threat from a member of The True Way, Odo is stuck dealing with a very unfamiliar situation: Feeling jealous of Shakaar's relationship with Kira.


  • I Feel Angry: Well, lovestruck and jealous. Two things Odo isn't accustomed to.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Odo gets so distracted by his jealousy that he fails to authenticate a (faked) message from Worf, which nearly gets Shakaar killed. Afterwards, Sisko says it's completely unlike the Constable to make such a mistake.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Odo spends most of the episode shadowing Shakaar and Kira. He insists it's for security, but it's painfully obvious he's there as a deliberate Third Wheel.
  • Tsundere: Of a non-romantic variety. Quark checked on Odo only cause his mood was interfering with his business. And Odo wasn't getting his floor soundproofed for Quark. There just happened to be soundproofing in it.
