You know...I really admire this episode. It confronts some fairly controversial topics - religion (a fairly controversial topic in the scifi community...and the death penalty/death of personality).
This is a very real reason why I became such a big fan of the series. I was never looking for a show that would sing the praises of religion. All I asked for was one that would not deny it's existence or consign it to the dominion of kooks, bigots and the uneducated. Yeah, that comes in large measure from myself being what one would call "religious".
This is a very good point. Because even DS9, which is the best of the Trek shows when it comes to religion, has Sisko very hesitant to accept his role as Emissary for several years, until he finally couldn't deny it any longer.

B5 does alot better with religion. Which episode is it that they have all of those religious people on the station??? I can't remember - like from season 1, right?
DS9 on DVD - Now 99.923% Borg-Free!
