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

So many responses I have!

1) I completely agree with everything ian said (and a number of other people have said). The race thing was a big issue with this episode.

2) Simon Tarses: I tried you link. It did not work. I have no idea what is behind your opinion, so I shall dismiss it. I tried though!

3) EliHawk: Behr only states that he didn't want "young kids" to think that 60's Vegas was anything but all white. That doesn't detract from the fact that it probably came a great deal from Brooks, who is a little "extreme" in that department.

I almost don't want to blame Brooks for his attitude because (if you watch a lot of his stuff, including "The Captains) you'll see that the poor guy has clearly lost his mind and was on the path to it even in his Star Trek days. He clearly does not recognize the world as it truly exists, and its really very sad.

My problem with the shot, no matter who was trying to send what message, is that 150 years before Uhura was 1,000 times more enlightened when she met Lincoln. Even during the half/half face episode of TOS (don't remember the name off hand), the whole crew very clearly shows that any differences they might have are not recognized in any racial way. Stuff like this and the Benny episodes, where they have to "go back in time" to shove messages down our throat, is moving completely against what Roddenberry and TOS was trying to do.

So whether or not you like the episode, it's still bad Star Trek

Re: DS9 S6: Far Beyond the Stars

I'm surprised anyone could like this episode. I'm not one to support racism, but it seems to me dwelling on the topic is as bad as supporting it. But my biggest problem with this episode had nothing to do with its racist implications. It was boring. It took a facinating concept, swept it out the door for no reason, and gave us an hour of "what the hell is going on now?". This has nothing to do with the main storyline, and did nothing but give trite dialouge and a sicophantic plot. It's all a dream! Whooo! Add to that Avery Brooks bad and over the top acting performance of a man who's losing his mind, and you come out with one of the worst episodes of the sixth season.
