Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

The B-plot was cute. But nothing in the A plot made any sense to me. As a parent, I simply can't follow how the O'Briens could make those decisions.
"We can't take those 10 years away from her!". Dude, she was just sent 300 years in the past, yeah? So basically she was dead of old age. Then you went and got her back age 18, how many years did you already "take back from her"? And because of this stupid reasoning full of holes, you'll allow your little girl to grow up in complete isolation, something that is bascially akin to torture? Seriously... WHY?
With that ridiculous premise out of the way, the O'Briens try to help their daughter and realise she will never fit into this life of theirs. So they... send her back? She'll be happy there, yaddi yadda? Well, for a while, maybe. What happens when she breaks a leg? Or falls sick? Not to mention that no matter how much space the girl needs, human beings remain social beings. THEY GO MAD with no one to talk to. You don't do that to your child, you just don't!
And the concept that Molly would be institutionized for life when her parents are there to take care of her is ridiculous. Even now in measly 20th century we don't do that anymore. Temporarily, yes, but always with the clear objective to enable the patient to go back to a more functioning life outside.
All around, this plot was holding together with bits of duct tape. I don't think it deserves more than 1 star... for the B-plot.

Re: DS9 S6: Resurrection

I agree with the comment rating this episode abysmal. I know others praise Nana Visitor for her performance as "Intendant Kira", but I just find it outrageously overplayed and annoying. I feel the urge to shut down the TV every time that character's on screen. (And I do love Visitor's work with "our" Kira).
Aside from that, the plot was completely transparent. The minute this mirror guy was there and crossed eyes with Kira, plot elements "there will be feelings between these two but alas they must tragically part before the credits roll" were certain. I thought he would die, but it ended up being even more boring than that.
I did like the scene where Worf had his weapon stolen off him, and the short exchange between Kira and Quark. That's it.
