Re: DS9 S4: The Visitor

When I watched this episode when it first age at the age of 15, I though it was a good episode, but not great. I have watched this episode periodically over the last 24 years but not since I became a father i 2020. As a father 25 years later I have just watched this episode. WOW! I never quite got why it was such an amazing episode before, but now as a father I totally have a new point of view. I cried no less than 3 times through the episode. The acting was spectacular. Cirroc lofton I pulled a performance for the ages out of thin air. The pain in his eyes each time Sisko shifted away was palpable. The fact that we are talking about this episode 25 years later is a testament to the greatness of this episode. The writing, pacing, music and acting just clicked. I totally understand where some people believe this was overrated or they just didn’t get it. I didn’t “get it” for 25 years. I just “got
It” today. Bravo! A true classic and literally the best episode of Star Trek among all 7 series. And a classic TV episode in all aspects.

Re: TNG S2: Shades of Gray

“It combines elements from previous episodes and form a new unique story which is easy to do”

You’re right, it is easy to do...with recycled footage.

Can’t wait for your review touting “Cost of Living”’s refreshing take on disciplining children.

Re: DS9 S7: Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang

I find it very troubling that people seem to really believe that Roddenberry's view was antiracist. I'm sorry but the PoC in TOS were not doing that much and let\s talk about that Black Planet in TNG shall we? Or why are most people of every race White?
I love Star Trek, but it is clearly written by people of our times. There is racism, antisemitism (c'mon Ferengi=space jews), queerphobia, sexism etc. It's all there in plain sight.
As someone who is Black and Queer I wouldn't have played this episode without some acknowledgement that it's not true to the actual time period. I still wonder why the hell Whoopi Goldberg thought it was ok to hang out somewhere end 19th/begin 20th century and pretend like she could just be some noble woman in the US. Please, no that was NEVER going to happen.
It can't be that people only respond to the fact when race is explicitely being mentioned, but then when the whole universe has a lot of White Supremacist triats people turn away? Eh no
