Re: DS9 S5: In the Cards

Is the line really "Lions, Geigers, and bears"? I don't recall any mention of "bears" in the exchange, but there was one of "beards" as in "bearding the lion in his den" - could it have been "lions, Geigers, and beards"?

Re: DS9 S5: Blaze of Glory

Much of the dialogue, especially that prison cell coversation, is rendered less powerful by the knowledge that, unlike what Jammer says at the end regarding Eddington, he is in fact very much a man with something to live for: it is the entire reason he cons Sisko into this, and why his death scene didn't make as much sense as it should. Eddington is a married man and desperately wants to be reunited with his wife. Since he never intended to let Sisko *not* force him along, much of his dialogue is therefore suspect, especially as we know that in one key aspect, having nothing to live for, he is lying. He has his wife.

Re: DS9 S5: For the Uniform

I for one loved the "Defiant leaving docking bay" scene. It made it seem like a real ship, requiring real training and skill to operate, and not the usual "point and fly" thing it is shown as, which looks like any Playstation fan could fly. It reminded me (no doubt deliberately) of a submarine, giving it an extra layer of believability. The Hunt for Red Eddington....

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

It seems a lot of comments here take issue with Jammer's review, so I won't add too much of my own. I cannot see "both sides" given a fair shake here, frankly: it was pretty obvious that Dead Squad were the antagonists--when have they not been? In a way this was a story about being careful what you wish for, with Nog "in" Red Squad.

What this episode reminded me most of was Lord of the Flies, and so I was very disappointed that none of the cadets got a dressing-down from real Starfleet officers after their crazy actions. I'd love to have seen Sisko instruct Watters on what real command meant....

Loved the FX of the Valiant blowing up, though....

Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

I don't like this one much, mainly as it depends entirely on one silly statement made by Bashir when they get 18-year old Molly. He refuses to let them try again as it would remove 18-Molly from existence and negate ten years of her life, and he didn't have the "right" or some such garbage. Well whatever happened to 19-year old Molly after 18-Molly was removed? Or 29-Molly? They were all negated from existence when she was removed. Taking her out of time at ANY stage would rob her of any future life. It's not as if 18-Molly was magically created when they pulled her back: the moment young Molly went into the past she was already dead in their time. It's just a question of when to get her. There was nothing technical working against them that we were told: it was Bashir's smug insistence on "rights" that screwed over the O'Briens.

But on the plus side, even though she looked 100% ethnically Asian, Michelle Krusiec was seriously hot....
