I liked this one much better than the previous three. I still don't have much affinity for the crew, except for maybe the doctor, but the plots were more entertaining (even if the solutions were cheesy/contrived at times).

'No Surrender' - The DaVinci is dispatched to fix an orbital prison station, which happens to house an old friend of Captain Gold.

'Caveat Emptor' - The DaVinci stumbles across a Ferengi in a lifepod.

'Past Life' - A xenophobic people invite the DaVinci to determine the origins of an ancient artifact buried on their world.

'Oaths' - Captain Gold confronts Dr. Lense (the valedictorian of Julian Bashir's class at Starfleet Academy) about her depression. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew get caught up in a pandemic on Sherman's planet.

I liked 'Oaths' the best although the ending was dubious followed by 'Caveat Emptor' (Ah, Ferengis, the comic relief of the Federation). 'Past Life' and 'Past Life' were interesting, solid stories.
