Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

The whole A-plot was an insulting waste of time. In the end, the 18-year-old Molly and her PTSD never had a chance to exist, which is the exact same thing that would have happened if they had just recalibrated and tried again in the beginning.

Also, recall that O'Brien and many on the crew had zero issues with **thousands** of people not getting a chance to exist in Children of Time. That is, until O'Brien saw a curly-haired redhead like himself and changed his mind.

The "all women get baby fever when they see a baby" thing was offensive.

Worf was surprisingly likable here. Keiko for once didn't grate on my nerves. Molly was her annoying self as a child, and now we know, as an adult too. Leave them both in the past, and send in Yoshi and Keiko too.

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

It's perfectly normal to send an ensign and his best friend to deliver a high-level diplomatic message from the leaders of the Federation to the Nagus. In the middle of a war. Without backup.

Also, Jake-o has grown up to be quite the A-hole. No wonder his dad seemed to have resigned himself to letting the prophets kill him in the last episode.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

Yay!!! A script written to allow Brooks to showcase his "acting:"
1. Emphasize every syl-la-ble in random and unexpected ways
2. Randomly quiver your voice to simulate the hu-man emotions of "sadness" and "anger"
3. Make sure your eyes never match the emotion you're trying to convey with your mouth.
4. End your sentences like you're holding back ejaculation.
5. Repeat.

Garak shines as always.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

Troll: Hey Kira. I F***ed your mom. lol
Kira: Who is this?
Troll: Throw-away account. Don't bother trying to run traceroute . lol
Kira. k. :(
Kira: But, I don't believe you!
Kira: Liar!
Troll: Your mom's birthday is today and she liked flowers.
Troll: pwned!
Troll: lololol.
Kira: I guess I'll have to travel back in time to see what happened.
Sisko. K.

Everyone in Star Fleet: Weird how we never used this time-travel orb when we've had disagreements about what happened in the past or when we were trying to figure out things about what the founders had done last month. But I guess figuring out if Kira's mom was cheating is more important.

Re: DS9 S6: Change of Heart

Never bought the Dax-Worf relationship. It always seemed a bit abusive to me and I never saw what they saw in each other. This episode tried to make it seem like they were a regular couple, but it failed. There is no chemistry. It all seems forced.

Jadzia's moaning and whining while she was wounded made me wish she'd just die already.

And Worf's dereliction of duty and dredging up of yet another made-up Klingon tradition/song/tale in defense was idiotic.

Re: DS9 S6: Far Beyond the Stars

Race is very much an issue in Sisko's own time. Why else would he and Jake (with one exception) only date and marry black women? You can't make a show that is that racist (too much for Sisko to date a white woman?) and then give us this heavy handed race relations lesson.

I liked this episode when it first aired. Not enough to watch it again. Brooks' over-acting is fine in small doses, but a whole episode featuring him...too much.

Re: DS9 S6: Honor Among Thieves

1. Why O'Brien in all of the universe?
2. If the Dominion is so keen on keeping knowledge of their involvement out of it, how about not having the Vorta show up with Reimus?

Stupid premise. Someone in the writers' room had an old screenplay lying around and stuck miles in there and made it a Trek episode. At least they knew better than to use Brooks.

Re: DS9 S6: The Magnificent Ferengi

Remember back in the early days of TNG, when the Ferengi were first introduced? Data said something to the effect of "their technology and weapons match ours." Remember the Ferengi whips? When did the Ferengi go from being militarily advanced to MBA nerds who don't know how to fire a phaser?

Funny episode overall, even if the premise (the Dominion kidnapping Moogie, the federation giving up POW on a Bajoran's request, and the Dominion wanting to exchange her for a disposable clone) is ridiculous.

Nog is awesome. Worf can learn a lot from him when it comes to abandoning a backward culture.

Re: DS9 S6: You Are Cordially Invited

[excited shriek] Worf and his Miss Kronos sash finally get their dream wedding. Too bad Miles, Sisko, Bashir, Alexander, and Dax have to suffer to give Worf his special day -- the special day he's been planning since he was a little boy!!

At least Dax gives Martok's racist wife a piece of her mind. The men just put up with Worf's backward culture. Weak.

Also, don't they have wikipedia at DS9? Maybe look up what a Klingon Bachelor party is before agreeing.

Re: DS9 S6: Sons and Daughters

Worf is so precious, walking around with his bachelorette sash and nagging Jadzia about details of their wedding. What a bridezilla!

Again, Worf is the worst. Emotionally abusive fiance, constant stick-in-the-mud, vain bridezilla, murderer, and a crap dad to boot.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

Great episode, but one minor flaw: Miles knows that he can finally be free of Keiko and her evil loin-spawn AND hook up with ensign Tennenbaum, but he doesn't instantly jump at the chance to replicate the crash? Makes ZERO sense.

Re: DS9 S5: Soldiers of the Empire

Worf is so precious, wearing his Miss Universe sash and his family flair on top of his Starfleet uniform.

The Klingons are so cute, singing what I imagine is their version of "row your boat" as they head into battle. The exterior shot of their ship while they were singing reminded me of kids heading off to summer camp.

No idea how the federation lets their staff take time off to fight for other armies, but whatever. And Dax, honey, seek some counseling to get away from this horrible, emotionally abusive relationship with Worf.

Overall, fairly tolerable for a Klingon episode. Minimum Sisko overacting. Bonus: No Keiko.

Re: DS9 S5: A Simple Investigation

A whole planet of people who think they're Cornholio. Each time one of those Idanian idiots showed up on screen, I expected them to ask for T.P. for their bungholes.

Also, sex with a shapeshifting, ever-changing phallus! That must have been fantastic for Ms. Cornholio.

Re: DS9 S5: For the Uniform

Brooks is the typical Shakespearian actor: more interested in what his words sound like and what the rhythm is than in what he's actually supposed to be conveying. He is the weakest link in this show, after one-note-Keiko.

Re: DS9 S5: The Begotten

Odo has been eating and drinking.

Then he turns into an eagle.

We see his clothes drop as he shapeshifts.

What happened to his bowel contents? Did he keep them inside the bird? If so, 1) gross, 2) how did he fit a human's full day's worth of poop inside that small bird?

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

Sisko tweaks out on futuristic amphetamines, discovers a lost city, and can see the future. For once, Brooks' acting is appropriate as a human (Klingon and meth-head human seem to be his wheelhouse).

Bashir doesn't know benzos and downers exist, and sees radical surgery as the only way to save him. On top of that, he has an order from Sisko not to operate, but lets Jake over-ride it for some reason.

No Keiko + very little Worf + appropriate level of Sisko over-acting + decent story = 3.5 stars.

Re: DS9 S5: Let He Who Is Without Sin...

I think we can all finally agree that Worf is the worst.

Not only is he a douche with all his "Klingon Honor" crap, he's also an emotionally abusive, jealous boyfriend who wants to control the people Dax hangs out with (major red flag, ladies). To cap that, he joins a fundamentalist movement while on Risa. On Risa!

It really lowers Dax in my opinion that she puts up with all his crap. I guess one of her old hosts must have been an abusive husband, and she feels like she has to atone for his crimes in this life.

This episode should have gotten at least one star because of its complete Keiko-lessness, but was ruined by how thickly the Klingon was spread all over it.

Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

Great episode for DS9. The story is a bit cliche'd, but it worked for me. Cirroc Lofton did a solid job.

No Keiko. No Worf. Minimum Sisko over-acting. Coincidence?

Re: DS9 S5: The Ship

All Muniz needed was an IV. Find some water and a tube, sterilize them, and wait for the Defiant.

Can we agree that Worf is the worst? Screw him and his Klingon crap. You find humans and Federation values stupid? Go the eff back to your violent dicks of a people and take Dax with you.

At least no Keiko in this episode.

Re: DS9 S5: Apocalypse Rising

This episode brings everything together. Avery Brooks was miscast as Sisko. He should have been a Klingon. His over ACTING and O V E R - E Nun See Ay Shun make him look like an idiot as Sisko, but fit perfectly for a douchey Klingon.

Also, a Klingon with an Irish accent. Nice.

At least there was no Keiko.

Can't wait for all this Klingon crap to be over.

Re: DS9 S4: Broken Link

Maybe Bashir and Sisko could have hopped over to the mirror universe to get a bucket to carry Odo in (the only reason I could think of why they didn't use a bucket to take Odo to The Defiant is that there are no Buckets in their universe)

Also, why do all the founders look like Odo when they take on solid form? Stupid.

Sisko over-acts as always. Very distracting.

Re: DS9 S4: Body Parts

I hate how the writers tease us with the possibility that something bad has happened to Keiko (sweet release for us and poor O'Brien) then whiplash us back to reveal that not only is she OK, but she's weaseled her way out of the pregnancy and now poor Kira has to carry her second evil spawn to term (ref: @Quarkissnyder's spot on comment about Molly, the future serial killer).

The Quark stuff is awesome as always thanks to Armin Shimerman's portrayal.
