I had no idea it was considered a weak episode. In my top 5 for the season. Not seen it since release though.

I didn't find it weak. And Weyoun had his first Kenny moment. :D

I like this episode. My favourite part is where Dax has that conversation with the young Jem'hadar assigned to her about age and his reaction to learning how old she is.

The review falls down here,

It feels like someone mashed together ideas from a lot of other Star Trek and sci-fi series – a stargate...

The Iconion Gateways came first. TNG Contagion, 1988.

Perhaps this misunderstanding is why the reviewer calls it weak when it is highly rated by almost everyone else?

Re: Retro Review: To the Death
The basic theme of "small contingent of heroes has to fight a small-arms battle in an ancient temple complex in a jungle-like outdoors shooting location for the control of a stargate" is at the very core of that other series, though, so it's amusing to see Trek utilize it.

...With a twist or two of its own, of course, but it's still Trek doing in its spare time what Stargate SG-1 was almost exclusively based on. :devil:
