Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

@James the dominion and founders amounted to nothing but mustache-twirlers. Their motivations were hardly developed. Maybe they could have done that instead of the myriad of other filler.

Re: DS9 S7: Covenant

The writters really enjoy taking the easiest path when it comes to depiction villains. The predictability of this episode just stinks of laziness. While the show attempts to depict the grey areas of life, I just can't get past the comical evil portrayal of the antagonists. Dukat was built up well to a point, but the founders were never shown in a sympathetic light. Hopefully that comes later in the season.

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

Man,when that girl was telling Jake about the sun rising on the moon it was sure some great acting. Probably the best funny bad part from season 6.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

Kira is gonzo beyond reason at times. This episode makes me think of the one where that disfigured butler was killing Kira's war buddies. Where that one totally fell flat with the Kira "muh right cuz" ending, this attempts to paint better shades of grey to her thinking.

I cannot express how much I hate her superwoman moments when she just starts clubbing armed guards with her metal fists.

Duet is still the best Kira episode I feel.

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

Without a scene of the dominion fleet just rematerialing somewhere in the gamma quadrant, this episode is about as satisfying as a wet fart. They could have simply appeared by the rouge planet of the founders and have made an immensely more satisfying episode.

Re: DS9 S5: The Darkness and the Light

Also, I'd prefer a French/Vietnam analogy more, because when the Dominion comes it'd be like the US. Have to make it a more inclusion analogy.

Re: DS9 S5: The Darkness and the Light

That analogy still doesn't address the elephant in the room: why they so primitive. The Bajorans should be more technologically advanced, but the show never gave us a hint that they are. Like do their brains function at a lower capacity to not develop technology at a similar rate to other alpha quadrant species? If their civilization has been around for half a million years I expect their tech to be BETTER than the federations they did have a big heads start after all. It seems like sloppy writing. This is my biggest gripe. If they were a shorter lives civilization I'd buy it, but in the context of the show they should be very advanced.

Re: DS9 S5: The Darkness and the Light

This episode lost me when Kira went back to the old "you killed X million of us line." Hard to see how any portrayal of a race of people being killed by the millions could leave me with nothing but apathy, but I just don't care about the Bajorans. How does a culture that has lasted for 500,000 years just get their butts kicked by the Cardassians and enslaved? Has this ever been explained? Why are they so primitive? How has Bermam left me not caring about space genocide?
