Re: DS9 S7: The Emperor's New Cloak

I'm surprised James Darren agreed to be in this episode. Three lines and 25 seconds of screen time are not worth bringing in a special guest star.

Re: DS9 S7: Prodigal Daughter

I liked this episode. I like drama between characters, and I think de Boer and the guest stars did a good job with it. I like how the writers related the Tigan family's financial problems to what we've seen of the Syndicate in previous episodes. (Battle scenes just bore me, though.) It seems to me Ezri was a good counselor here: she was too late to prevent the murder, but she helped Janel and Yanas realize what they had given up for the business.

Yes, New Sydney was clearly identified as not a Federation world. The Syndicate seems to prefer non-Federation worlds, and so do people who want to become or stay rich industrialists.

I give it 3 1/2 stars.

Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

1 star. Plot holes are too big to ignore. A child who's raised normally until age 8 is not going to completely forget how to speak or interact with other humans, even after 10 years. It would take a little time, but resocializing her wouldn't be the hopeless project this episode lets on.

It would have been extremely difficult for Molly to survive 10 years on her own, when she's used to being fed and cared for. She'd have no idea what to eat or how to get it. It's really wildly unlikely she would last 2 months, let alone 10 years.

And total parenting fail! If 19-year-old Molly needs to be at a care center where she'll be watched full time, if she needs to be on a planet where she can run and play in nature, then that's what you do as parents. If you have to resign for Star Fleet and move to earth, that's what you do. Even 21st century United States parents would probably do that, and this is supposed to be the so-enlightened Federation! Sending a child back to live a short live as a wild beast is beyond cruel.

And there's the reset-button ending. Very few reset-button episodes are worth watching... and this isn't one of them.

Re: DS9 S7: Seventh Season Recap

Wow, I am amazed at the anti-Ezri posts above. I thought Ezri was far more convincing and interesting in her part than Jadzia. Maybe it's partly the writing and partly the acting, but I didn't find Jadzia convincing at science, or at commanding the Defiant, or at being a friend and confidant to Sisko. The only thing I really believed her doing was playing Tongo and going to parties... not really enough for an interesting character, in my opinion. Okay, actually I liked her a bit better in the first season, when she was still playing aloof and cool and almost Vulcan-like.

Ezri was far more interesting, in spite of the questionable relationship with Bashir. She was very convincing, in my opinion, in the visit to her family, and with Worf. I felt like we knew her better after one season than we did in six seasons with Jadzia.

In case there's anybody reading these comments who's confused, I posted on a couple of other reviews with the name Patrick, but I'm not the same as the Patrick who's posted on here before today.
