Re: DS9 S7: Seventh Season Recap

I loved the series. An excellent and darker take on the galaxy rather than the idealized version. In the comments for a previous episode, @Elliot said how it was the "right thing to do" to give a cure to the founders the moment one could be synthesized. Maybe, maybe not. If that is the right thing to do is it wrong then to engage in armed combat against them? Or is that OK despite mass destruction but for some reason infecting the Founders is wrong? It's those sort situations where high handed morality falls apart pretty quickly.

As far as making things less rushed and the writers saying if only we had five more episodes? I echo some of the previous sentiment. You had plenty of other episodes that you chose to waste on fluff and silliness. It's your story. Tell it how you want, but don't later complain that someone didn't give you a chance to tell it better.

A really good series and I wish we could one day have a modern Trek series in a similar model. Dark, intelligent, realistic.

My biggest issue with the episode was the manner in which Sisko went to the caves. He was dancing with Kasidy and then the writers were like "Oh wait. We forgot about those two people in the cave. Ben go handle that." It was so sudden, jarring and out of place.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

This episode eas so tedious and dumb that it set me off my watching schedule for a couple weeks. I started and stopped the episode several times until eventually forcing myself through it. Nothing to be gained by watching this one.
