Re: DS9 S4: Hard Time

Star Trek at its best. Unless you know the truth of what goes on in some prisons and psych wards the social commentary might be lost. But controversial subjects aside, this is simply a wonderful episode to watch for the acting and humanity. I love "indestructible" characters as much as anyone, but sometimes a little dose of reality is healthy. Trek does not get it right all the time. I'd say they get it right many more times than they fail. But here some very weighty subjects are handled impressivly deftly in areas that other shows would steer well clear of. Some of it is heavy (you have been warned, there are other lighter episodes) but in the end its very moving.

Re: DS9 S2: Cardassians

Found this page after wondering about the ending. Took me a while, but it seems obvious that, even though Dukat did not get what he wanted (or did he?), the consequences if his actions forced Sisko into his funal decision. I think its deliberately left unclear. Notice Bashir's and Garaks talk of "coincidences", and his final words about "crumbs on the table" representing evidence that Bashir is more than capable if putting together ... just as we are. That's what I liked bout this episode, its not all spelt out ... and remember when it was made ... well before 911, Iraq, WoT and what we now casually dismiss as scheming politicians. Back in 93 we were all the good guys after the fall of the Berlin Wall ! But the writers of this episode seemed a bit wiser.
