Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

Got to be kidding me. One of the most unstomachable episodes in all of DS9. I agree that this season had a rough go.

I kept seeing the unusual flaws.

How hard would it be to find an Asian girl who doesn't have an extra 10 lbs of chub on her arms? She definitely hadn't missed any meals recently. Nor trips to the manicurist. Her perfectly cut, but badly hair-sprayed bangs, her complex weave-pattern upper garments with her spandex-like leggings... Do you know how difficult it is to make nylon... with stone age tools??

This is an 8 year old girl who forgot how to speak. How skilled is she going to be at surviving?

I think it is interesting because I have learned a couple of languages that have lain dormant since I was a child for 15-20 years and it took me all of 10 minutes to get back into the groove of things... And those were secondary languages, never spoken at home. And after running into an old acquaintance after 15 years of not seeing each other, my subconscious recognized him before I could even place the name (slightly embarrassing because he has the same name as me...).

And the portal... I guess with all his technological skill, O'Brien couldn't figure out how to make a simple locking door.

Come on. I expect more! DS9 is my favorite of the Treks, but this sort of fluff belongs in Voyager!
