Re: DS9 S7: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

FOUR stars? Hmm. Personally, I thought it was a good episode, but the whole 'morality dilemma' was a bit cliched and overplayed by this point, and could have done with being a bit more subtle and nuanced.

Re: DS9 S7: Chimera

One quick point: just because the familiar 'female' founder character doesn't normally use anything but a crude approximation of a face doesn't mean she doesn't have the ability to do so.

Maybe it takes effort/skill, so most of the time they can't be bothered, but if they need to, they will. Odo, meanwhile, hasn't figured out the level of skill necessary yet.

But I agree that Sisko was acting out of character not to figure out that Kira was lying... he's usually sharper than that.

Re: DS9 S7: The Siege of AR-558

"...a portion of Sisko's crew finds itself trapped--unable to beam up..."

Wrong. They had the chance to leave and Sisko decided they would stay and help defend the outpost, even though they weren't obliged to. That's a pretty important plot detail IMHO.

Re: DS9 S7: Treachery, Faith, and the Great River

Can't really see what all the fuss is about this episode; personally it didn't really grab me.

Apart from anything else I just can't believe that Weyoun-7 would allow Odo to be killed. It just didn't feel plausible at all.

Same goes for Weyoun-6's motivations in defecting; they just didn't feel fleshed-out enough to be believable.

The only really interesting juicy bit was the mistrustful dynamic between Damar and Weyoun. The rest somehow just felt a bit boring and contrived...

Re: DS9 S7: Chrysalis

Well, as the review says, regardless of whether this particular episode was predictable, we KNOW that something has to go wrong by the end of the episode because no relationship with a guest character ever lasts!

So aside from gripes about the predictability of this episode, there's a much wider complaint to be made about what is basically becoming a formula.

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

Seeing odo doing the moves has to be the funniest moment, closely followed by Worf's classics... :)

Re: DS9 S7: Shadows and Symbols

To say that the Benny Russell bit was a false vision sent to Sisko from a pagh-wraith is only one interpretation.

Another is that Benny Russell is real, and he wrote that vision bit into his story...

What I like about the way the writers have handled all this is that they haven't simplistically opted to indicate that either interpretation is the "real" one; they co-exist as possibilities.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

...that was much more astonishing for me and I felt it was skipped over much too lightly at the end of the episode.

"Hey, they swapped planets, it's all fine."

Yeah, right.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

As others have said, Sisko's actions in this episode were far less shocking after seeing him (in an earlier Maqui episode) order the poisoning of an entirely innocent colony's atmosphere just because it suited him as a bargaining chip...
