Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

I used to have issues with this episode too, but after my latest viewing I don't hate it anymore. In fact I found it very entertaining. It's the old suspension-of-disbelief-thing. You just have to roll with it. Yes, Rom + Leeta are still annoying. But other than that I really don't have any major complaints.

I think the writers were very aware of their over-the-top use of every cliche possible. That's precisely what they needed to do. I would not have been satisfied otherwise. ;)

Re: DS9 S6: The Sound of Her Voice

I really liked this episode. I feel like a good amount of character work was being accomplished by the two storylines. This was very welcome after some shallow outings in preceding episodes. I liked the understated approach and the fact that a lot of the main characters got some sort of development out of this episode. I also enjoyed the balance of drama and comedy. I don't think that it needed any more impact in the characterizations. The way it was done was just right for my taste. Truly a great episode of DS9 in my eyes. There was nothing I didn't like about it (except maybe the somewhat unneccessary twist ending). Three and a half stars from me.

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

Wow. I remember I had some issues with this back in the day when it first aired. But after watching it again all I can say is... this is the dumbest, most unbelievable ST episode of all time. I'm appalled.

I normally completely agree with Jammer's observations. Definitely not this time though. This is a strong contender for worst Star Trek ever.

I do like Jake Sisko though.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

Wow, I can't believe there are so many critical posts about this episode. Why does everyone worry so much about if what the characters tell us about the consequences would actually be true in the real world or not? Time travel defies logic anyway, so just go with the writer's interpretation! What's important here is the depiction of the moral dilemma these characters face. You're watching an episode of TV, so learn to suspend disbelief, please! Don't nitpick wonderful episodes like this one to death.

I agree 100% with Jammer, this is one of DS9's finest episodes. It hit all the right notes for me. Pure magic.

Re: DS9 S5: Let He Who Is Without Sin...

John - you have to be kidding. How could you possibly stand this being done to these characters? It's not only a very, very bad episode - it also insults every true fan by ridiculing every major character that appears in it. And not in a good way.

Shame on the producers for this one!

Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

Oh, and I guess it's true that Lofton's acting wasn't particularly convincing. But try putting Wheaton in that role. Erm... no.

Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

DS9 is very different in tone to TNG. Everybody knows that. Roddenberry's utopian vision is not central to DS9 at all. You have to look at it in a very different light. But if you do, you will realize that it has its own unique qualities that none of the other Star Trek shows have.

As for this episode, I wouldn't give it 4 stars but it is in fact an important character piece for Jake and as such, I found it enjoyable.
