Re: DS9 S4: Homefront

You might want to add a commentary upon this review about the post-9/11 world. It is interesting that Trek was still so prescient even during the DS9 era. TOS and TNG were great technological and progressive mediums for the 20th century. DS9 was viewed negatively by traditional trek fans back in the 1990's, but today I can bet you most traditional trek fans have changed their tune.

The dark allegories and the drive of war with its intrigue and double-edged morality makes this Trek, the vision of the 21st century. DS9 is the series for today, but it came far too early to have its impact on us.

Terrorism, paranoia, religious conflicts, factional divisions, wars, and political intrigue belong to the 21st century.

Homefront is a delicate story that makes you feel like a 9/11 size event occured in the deferation. An enemy that we know has been out for years has finally struck us. The reactions are both subtle and overt. Large changes in the structure of military and civilian command structures. It feels like it was written and done for our current audiences.

DS9 and Battlestar pushed the envelope of human endurance and human capacity. Episodes like Homefront and In the Pale moonlight of the later season 6 are the greatest epitaphs to this amazing series.
