Storyline

Bashir and O'Brien are in a laboratory in orbit of T'Lani III. They are helping the T'Lani and Kellerun to try to destroy dangerous biological weapons called 'harvesters'. They were used by both species in a devastating war which lasted for a long time. Recently they signed a peace accord and now want destroyed any reference to the harvesters to ensure they will never be used again. Bashir and O'Brien manage to neutralize one of the harvesters and both species are very pleased. They even invite them to a celebration party. When the last harvester is about to be destroyed, suddenly two armed Kellerun enter the laboratory and start shooting everyone. Bashir and O'Brien are only barely able to escape, but have nowhere to go. O'Brien starts repairing a transmitter. Suddenly he gets very cold. Meanwhile the T'Lani and Kellerun ambassador travel to DS9. They bring the news of the passing of Bashir and O'Brien in an accident. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Two rival planets have come up with a solution to their problems...become total jerks!
18 December 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Armageddon Game" finds Dr. Bashir and Chief O'Brien helping two warring planets to solve their problem with biological/chemical agents. While the two sides have declared peace, they are stuck with these weapons of mass destruction and have no idea how to neutralize them. So, with the help of these two members of Starfleet, the team of scientists figures out how to eliminate this threat once and for all. HOWEVER, after the job is done, something insane happens--folks attack and murder the scientists. Somehow O'Brien and Bashir survive and escape and they are left wondering who did this and why. In the meantime, things get interesting as the representatives of both governments inform Deep Space 9 that their two crew members were killed in an accident! What?!?!

This is a very good and paranoid episode. The solution to all this is also really interesting...and very Machiavellian! But the best thing is the very, very end--the conversation between O'Brien and Keiko is classic! Well worth seeing.
