Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

The biggest issue I have with this episode is the notion that they are dooming 8000 people to non-existence, and it's a matter of measuring one life against 8000. Ok, but what about the kids the crew would have had if they had gone back to DS9? For example, who is to say Chief O'Brien and Keiko don't wind up having 5 more kids? I don't like the implication that it's 1 vs. 8000, it's more like 8000 vs. an undetermined number of descendants the crew will have in the future after a similar 6 generations.

Oh, and for all we know, a Dominion ship could pass the planet the next day, see a bunch of human/Klingons on it and kill everyone in seconds. A little more fragile that having descendants spread over the entire Alpha quadrant.

And hey, what about the billions of people in the Alpha quadrant who will be overrun by the Dominion without Sisko? Really this should have been a VOY episode, not a DS9 episode. At least with VOY, they would have had to make a decision between a very uncertain future and 200+ years of relative prosperity.
