Re: DS9 S1: Duet

I have also watched The Duet several times, and it always hits me in the end like a hammer coming down on an anvil. I agree with all comments concerning how this "money-saving bottle episode" ended up being way better than episodes (and even movies) that cost millions.

I wished the Star Trek franchise had invested more into this. As it is, there are some such episodes (I'm reminded of "Lifesigns" from Voyager), but not nearly enough. Maybe Star Trek, like other science fiction shows, thinks it has to deliever the oomph of "alien cultures" and "cool technology" rather than real human situations. The latter are invariably better, especially when the actors are up to the task -- as they certainly were in the case of "Duet".

All in all, this might be my favorite episode of the entire franchise, with the possible exception of (also DS9) "In the Pale Moonlight".
