Re: DS9 S7: The Dogs of War

I don't really like them getting a new Defiant so quickly. Particularly since we're long past the need to preserve the status quo.

Even if it needed to be a Defiant class ship for practical reasons, they shouldn't have re-used the name. Make it the Reliant or the Brilliant or something...

Re: DS9 S7: Penumbra

Isn't all this talk of destiny and fate kind of linear for the prophets?

Re: DS9 S7: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

I enjoy the episode, but I find the too perfect foresight given to Sloan a problem, and one that pushes the story towards promoting his position, rather than being a balanced look at a moral question.

When the story consistently shows Sloan to judge right, and Bashir to only be able to serve as a helpless patsy, its hard to feel like the story is asking us to believe in Bashir's judgement.

Re: DS9 S7: Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang

Doesn't O'Brien mostly go on about Scotch? Which... isn't very Irish?

Re: DS9 S7: Covenant

I think my biggest problem with DS9's treatment of faith was that it often did a bad job of adjusting to the fact that the Prophets obviously are out there and doing things. Which means that a lot of the time the "sceptic" characters look like wilfully blind fools, because they're not making the right arguments when the wormhole aliens are an obvious fact, and a lot of the rest of the time the "believer" characters look like the wilfully blind fools because they seem to be bizarrely oblivious to the reality of the things they claim to follow.

Well, that or just that making "spiritual" the Bajoran's sole hat besides the occupation made them kind of boring. Particularly because it's a rather generic spirituality.

As for this episode, I feel like it could be good without Dukat, but Dukat is so dominant that this is basically saying it could have been good if it was a whole different episode.

The problem for me is that Dukat has no real credibility, so too much of the episode is just listening to him talk rubbish while Kira makes boring and obvious responses that do nothing really to develop her character.

I thought the Vedek could have been interesting if he had been given time to develop.
