Re: DS9 S4: Rules of Engagement

@ Yanks:

Yes, what you say is true, it just seems to be a very sneaky, non-Klingon way to handle the situation.

Re: DS9 S7: Once More Unto the Breach

@Yanks:

Yeah not crazy about the idea myself(although in the right hands it could've been done well), was just trying to think of something that could possibly pleased both sides of the aisle, so to speak :)

Re: DS9 S7: Chimera

A few things:

1) Has it actually been stated in the show that Odo is infected yet? If it has, I missed it.

2)Not sure if I buy the Changeling's ability to shape-shift into fire, mainly due to the nature of how fire exists.

3)I don't think I could've turned down Laas' offer if I were I Odo's shoes.

As for the episode: I could've done without the whole murder/escape parts(to me, they kinda felt like they were put in just to make the episode's running time), but otherwise enjoyable.

Re: DS9 S7: Once More Unto the Breach

Although I am ususally not a fan of Klingon-centric episodes, I do enjoy this one quite a lot.


In regards to the ending:

What if they had shown what appeared to be Kor's glorious victory, but it turns out that it's just Worf(or Martok) retelling the "legend" back on the station at Quark's, or something similar?

Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

Man, another snoozer, although this episode is admittedly better than the last two(which really isn't saying much).

This season has taken a nosedive since "In the Pale Moonlight". Enough fluff, can we get back to the main story arc, PLEASE!

On a side note, what HAPPENED to season 6? It started out so well, but these last few episodes have just been awful. Ugh.

The best part of this episode was the closing credits......

....and yet I still find it less annoying than "Move Along Home".

Re: DS9 S6: His Way

How in the HELL does Vic communicate over the station com with Odo WHEN THE PROGRAM ISN'T EVEN RUNNING?


I just don't get what people see in the Vic character. He's just an annoying cliche to me.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

@Robert and Dave in NC:

Ok, if you go with the theory that the Prophets are the highly evolved descendants of the Bajorans, could the Orbs be seen not as items of worship(as the current Bajorans see them), but as tools meant to help the current Bajorans evolve into the prophets? And that the whole Bajoran religion is nothing but a misinterpetation of what the Orbs are meant to be? Interesting.

@Jammer:

Quote from Jammer: "One area where this episode can't compare to a predecessor like "Necessary Evil" is in its production design. Jonathan West's quiet, understated approach to the tone of Terok Nor can't measure up to James L. Conway's unforgettable vision of the same place. Whether it was due to budget constraints or not, this Terok Nor feels just a little too much like Deep Space Nine."

If I'm reading this right, you seem to expect the station to look like it did in previous flashbacks. But as stated in the episode itself, the station is brand new, so it would not yet have all the dirt, grime, etc. built up to "look" like it does in those other flashbacks to which you refer. In that case, I can see how the station would look more like the sterilized DS9 we are all used to seeing.

Re: DS9 S6: You Are Cordially Invited

The only reason I suffer through this whole episode is for the "Klingon Bachelor Party" scenes. Bashir and O'Brien are great in these scenes. The Wedding ceremony isn't bad, either.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

Oh, man, anyone else get a headache whenever arguments about time travel are started? For me, time travel is kind of like the idea of an afterlife: tons of theories, postulations, thoughts, beliefs, but no proof OF ANY OF IT. We can speculate all we want, but until we experince it firsthand, none of us has any clue.

When it comes to episodes like this, as long as the story is engaging, I can enjoy it for what it is. I don't see much of a point in destroying a great character study like this episode by nitpicking over the ins and outs of something we can't possibly comprehend with the knowledge we possess at this stage in our educational evolution.

But hey, that's just me. Feel free to nitpick away if that's your thing.

Only thing I find annoying is the whole Kira/Shakaar break-up. Way to think for yourselves, lemmings!

Not a fan of this episode, mainly because i just think Klingon "culture" is kind of ridiculous and unsustainable.

Re: DS9 S5: In Purgatory's Shadow

Ah, here it is! This episode is the reason I started watching Star Trek.

My father was a fan of TOS when I was a kid, and I remember kind of liking it, and I can remember going with him to see Star Trek IV in the theaters when it came out, but neither really got me into watching any of the spinoff series, or subsequent movies.

Then in my early 20's I got a job as a security guard which required me to work overnights. I've never been able to fall asleep right away when I get home from any job, I need a little wind down time. At this particular time, Spike TV was showing back-to-back episodes of TNG followed by back-to-back episodes of DS9. Well I happened to be flipping through channels one day and caught this particular episode(along with part two) and I can remeber being rivited! Now that security job didn't last long(man it sucked!), so I didn't get to finish catching up on all of the series at that point, but it didn't matter, I was hooked.

Re: DS9 S5: The Begotten

I like this episode, but two things:

1)The Bajoran birth ritual is ridiculous! How would anyone find that relaxing?

2)Almost all the B-plot, except the actual birth, once again felt like a bad sitcom. When put with the B-plot of "Looking for Par'mach in All the Wrong Places", I am so glad that little story thread is finished.

As for Odo's turning back to a Changling: I never really got how the Founders were able to change him to a "solid" in the first place, so why not have his change back be as mystifying :)

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

Ok, this might come off as a bit of rambling nonsense, but I'm having trouble keeping it straight in my head(I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of Trek in my head to fall back on), and I'm hoping one of you might help me in this regard.

The Bajorans believed in the prophets well before proof of their existence (the discovery of the wormhole). I can see how this, coming almost immediately after suffering 50 some odd years of Cardassian oppression, would galvanize their beliefs.

The prophets, once the wormhole is discovered and their existence confirmed, don't seem to understand our existence as linear beings(Sisko tries to explain it to them in the pilot). It almost seems to me that they could be seen as discovering us at this same time. If they could not understand the concept of linear time, it is quite feasible to me that they would have no understanding of what it is to worship something, and thus would not understand the Bajoran worship of them, which could help explain how uninvolved they were in the Bajoran existence(why they didn't prevent the Cardassian occupation, for example). So the whole Bajoran/Prophet relationship could be seen as the Bajorans worshipping a power they can't quite comprehend, and the Prophets using them(and Sisko) to try to understand an existence they can't quite comprehend.

As the series moves on, the Wormhole Alien prophets, through more interaction with our linear existence and Sisko as the Emissary, come to understand us more and thus get more involved in what is happening around them(like destroying the Dominion fleet).

Now this doesn't entirely explain why the Bajorans began worshipping the Prophets in the first place. I also don't remember if there's anything that happens later in the series that would prove these ideas wrong. Like I said, just wanted to put it out there. If it's rubbish, so be it. Just needed to get it out of my head :)

In regards to Sisko's "salvage" claim:


Maybe it's just me, but I always took that line as Sisko kinda messing with the Vorta. It's not like Sisko is above being a little bit of a smart ass once in a while.

Re: DS9 S4: Rules of Engagement

Ugh. Two stinkers in a row. Really disappointing, considering how strong season 4 had been up to this point. The only thing that "lawyer" proved is how ridiculous the Klingons are. He repeatedly states that Worf acted as a klingon would in that situation. If that's the case, WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO EXTRADITE HIM? According to what the lawyer presents, he acted as a Klingon would, so why would they want to put him on trial? In their eyes, he did nothing wrong.

Once again, I tend to dislike Klingon-centered episodes. Jons above pretty much stated my feelings about Klingons.

Re: DS9 S4: Accession

Bad episode, possibly the worst of the season(along with "The sword of Kahless, although in that case, i'll admit I'm just not a fan of Klingon centric stories). The Bajorans come across almost as bad as the rubes following the crazy lady in "Paradise".

Only thing worth seeing in this episode is Worf's reaction to the news that Keiko is pregnant.

Re: DS9 S4: Return to Grace

Definitely one of my favorite episodes of the season.

Man, the speech he gives to Kira when he's trying to convince her to join him on his crusade(and seems to me to convince himself as well) was awesome. I would've fought with him after that speech, and I'm a pacifist! :)

Re: DS9 S4: The Visitor

While it doesn't take away frome the episode at all for me, I have one small nitpick:

If they just discovered this wormhole at the beginning of the series, how do they know it's going to do this "inversion" thing? And even further, how do they know it only happens once every 50 years?
