Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

Jeez, are these comments made by 15-year-olds?

YES, Jake is a spoiled child. YES, he's a coward. That is the FUCKING POINT of this episode. And one it's not that subtly bringing across. Jake wanted to experience drama because in his spoiled little mind he thought that's what would make him a writer. He is naive. And he got what he wished for.

If you can't handle a protagonist not acting the way you (think/dream/wish) you would act, you have some growing up to do.
Good stories aren't about Mary Sues, they are about real people acting in a real way. And human behavior has quite a spectrum to it. Just because Jake's dad is Mr. Fantastic - diplomat, war strategist, ship combat tactician, spec ops, Bajoran lightship builder, tinkerer of the Defiant's systems - doesn't mean Jake has to be all that.
Even in the 24th century and even in Gene Roddenberry's "vision" humans must be sub-fantastic sometimes.
