[DS9] Season 3, Episode 17: Visionary
This is an episode that is edging on a 3 rating, but sticking at a 2 for now. I like the Romulan involvement in the episode, there’s decent enough mystery, and generally I like crazy time stuff. The episode ends up feeling a little too drawn out, and having too many convenient turns.

The Romulans come to the station. They want the intel Starfleet promised in exchange for the cloaking device on the Defiant
O’Brien sees a vision of himself talking to Quark, and then in a few hours he has the conversation with Quark. He’s seeing into the future!
It’s the radiation from an accident that’s causing his time shifting. Dang radiation
His next vision is a bar fight
And then that happens
His next vision is of him dying. Uh oh. Now he’ll be able to avoid it though. It’s good luck that this radiation thing happened to him on the day that he would’ve died otherwise
He has another vision of him dying, this time from the radiation
But the future Bashir tells him how he can avoid it
Then he has a vision of the station being evacuated and blowing up!
He doesn’t have enough information, so he decides to purposely increase the radiation to force another time jump.
It was a cloaked Romulan Warbird! It’s actually kind of lame that one Warbird could take out DS9
The past O’Brien had too much radiation so the future O’Brien has to go back in his place
So they just tell the Romulans to get lost
