Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

Having browsed through the comments for this episode, I am shocked by the number of biased anti-American comments in this thread.

#1. Ferengi are not Americans in fancy-dress makeup. I've lived here for forty years and met countless people in my time and I've yet to meet anyone who'd remind me of a Ferengi. (I've always thought that the Ferengi were based on a special small subset of the investing class mixed with a little hucksterism and a lot of broad comedy). Anyone who equates Ferengi with Americans knows very little factual data about actual Americans.

I guess tarring and feathering 330 million people is ok, you know, as long as it isn't some noble group like ISIS. (Sarcasm)

#2. Sisko is from the past of Earth that was America. Why wouldn't/shouldn't he like the game? It is part of his heritage. No one knocks Tom Paris for classic movies/cars, Riker for playing trombone or Picard nerding out over historical discoveries.

#3. If the writers had made soccer the focus, I doubt Americans posting here would have made a federal case out of it.

****

Re, the episode itself: I found it to be a little slow paced and the humor was bordering on cringe, but for an Ezri episode, its surprisingly watchable.
