Re: DS9 S6: Inquisition

I really don't know why people are jumping down the throats of fans of the original Trek. As someone who has been a longtime fan of Star Trek/Genes vision AND enjoys DS9. I also don't consider myself a "naive little thing" either. Please! this is Sci-Fi /Fantasy. You are actually challenging people and their street smarts on a forum about a fantasy show. I watched Star Trek because I liked the 'hopefulness' it had for our future. I mean there are plenty of scifi shows with dark themes like X-Files (another show I enjoy). There are plenty of shows that show us how dreary everything is, I mean I can understand why some people don't like the idea of Star Trek being touched with it. Sometimes DS9 fans take this show too seriously. I mean its almost as if people take Roddenberry's vision and his fans ideas sooo personally like they are these billy bad arses for pointing out what children they are. Its as if these people forgot what fantasy is, lol. Your Sci-Fi "realism" isn't going to impress anyone in the real world. Also, let me tell you, I actually think DS9 takes a lot of its dark concepts and distills it into something more simplistic to validate people who don't like Roddenberry. Newsflash: DS9 chickened out on lots of its own attempts to portray a more layered world. So. yeah. Though I love DS9 its really not that edgy and it has it's flaws.

Anyways, I thought this episode was really interesting and I find the Sloan character entertaining. I thought the acting in this was strong. I was laughing when Sloan first opened his mouth because I'm used to hearing the actor do more deep western or southern accents. He's always been one of my favorite character actors, as Bashir is my favorite DS9 character. Siddig and Brooks also did a good job and Micheal Dorn aka Worfs direction was surprisingly good for his first DS9 episode. Too bad he didn't direct more. Like the reviewer, I was also disappointed that it was an illusion. Despite that I think it was one of the best episodes of the season.
