Re: DS9 S6: Waltz

Great episode. I would give it a 3.5 out of 4. I can’t add much to what has been written already. But no one has mentioned one thing. There were at least three references to a classic TOS episode, The Doomsday Machine. The obvious one was the USS Constellation. The second was referenced in the comments but not tied to TDM. It’s Worf’s comment to Bashir “Doctor you may leave the bridge.” Commodore Decker makes that same statement to Doctor McCoy. The third is the statement right after the second about searching or investigating “the third planet”. Commodore Decker’s crew died on “the third planet”. Kirk even exclaims “there is no third planet!” in TDM.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

@Yanks

Yes they were there to satisfy Jadzia’s curiosity. But to create the accident the first time and to match it the second time, they would of had to stay in orbit for well over a day the first time (just as they did the second time)? Why? The first time there was nothing there to hold their attention. There was no colony the first time. So why stay so long?

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

There is one thing not mentioned (at least I didn’t see it) in all the comments that is bothering me. Why did they stay in orbit so long the first time they were there? Supposedly the colony didn’t exist the first time. They knew Kira needed medical attention on the station. The second time they spent quite a bit of time interacting with the colonists. But what would have been the reason the first time, without a colony? If they had to try to leave orbit the first time at the same time as they tried to intentionally hit the anamoly the second time, they must have stayed quite a while. The first time, they should have entered orbit, since there is no colony to hail them they wouldn’t have a reason to stay long, Bashir should have said Kira needs medical treatment at the station, they do a quick scan of the planet and see nothing, and they leave to go back to the station to treat Kira. But they didn’t. Why did they stay so long the first time?
