Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

I agree with the general sentiment about the plot holes.

Ross AND Sisko going against the Prophet's wishes is just clown-shoes. It's like in some TV shows where fantastic things happen all the time, yet nobody believes the protagonist that something fantastical has happened. Here, every single prophecy has come true. So if the "wormhole aliens", the things that prevent Dominion reinforcements from coming through, tell you to do something, it's patently stupid to not do it.
Though I will admit that Sisko choosing SF after that ridiculous ultimatum by the admiral was in line with his character - he does have that uniform fetish.

Then there's our typical problem of Sisko apparently being not only the Emissary to the Bajoran people, but also the Messiah of Star Fleet. The only dude who can do anything. Star Trek and its captain worship.

Was it ever explained why Dax didn't go on this mission? They usually take the whole merry bunch with them on every reconnaissance mission.
Her death was quite good, actually. I like that it was almost casual and not super heroic (*cough* Wrath of Khan... *cough*)
A bit sad about her, though her character was getting a bit long in the tooth...
