Re: DS9 S1: Progress

I can't really sympathize with Mullibok here. He chose to live on this moon because of the Occupation, but now that it's all over he can back and have a decent life on Bajor. Bajor is depicted as this beautiful planet that everyone would like to live. In fact, all the other inhabitants on the moon had already left precisely because they could relocate to their actual home planet and probably get some helpful compensation from the Provisional government.

Add to all this, the moons were under control of the Bajorans for what seems to be thousands of years, it really feels like Mullibock took advantage of the Occupation to live his nice private life on Bajoran property while everyone else had to put up with the brunt of the Occupation and back-breaking work to rebuild the core planet.

This episode brings up some great government-individual themes, but in the end you're left with the feeling that Kira putting in way more effort than she needs to deal with something that shouldn't be her problem as a military officer.
