Re: DS9 S1: Progress

This was one of the episodes I've really enjoyed - some excellent parallels with modern events, and highlights DS9's place in Canon examining the not so utopian parts of the universe. You could easily see Kira's path going the other way, but in the end she chose the "wrong" option - we as viewers are left to interpret whether the Bajoran state is entitled to determine what is best. As mentioned above, a failure of the writing to sufficiently establish scale, but then again, as long as the impression is conveyed, it's not done an altogether bad job in portraying a revolutionary being swayed away from the ideals of freedom by being drawn into a grinding apparatus - slightly kronstadt-esque, in my opinion. I really thought sisko's comment about being on the other side would solidify Kira's resolve, and it instead swaying her was one of my complaints about the episode. I feared discussion on the episode would conflate private and personal property, and I wasn't entirely wrong.
3.5/4, subtracted a half star for the scale error and that one sisko comment
