Of course I understand that Star Trek originally tackled issues like racism and sexism. But DS9 wasn't made in the 60's. Many issues that were extremely relevant back then, like racism, were not nearly as relevant in the 1990's. I'm not saying that racism had entirely been eliminated by the time this episode aired, but it wasn't an issue in the way it was back in the 60's.
Exactly my issue. Maybe if they'd tackled homosexuality or something then I'd find the episode a bit relevant and interesting.

RE: Warlord - It was a pretty standard episode not really taking advantage of Voyager's premise but the execution was decent although I thought the lighting was ugly in this episode like it is in much of season 3. It did at least provide some insight into Kes's character unlike a lot of other possession stories since it showed her resolve into trying to regain control of her body. It probably straddles "mediocre" and "good" for me. I think Lien's performance is pretty good here but I think her performance in Before and After and The Gift is better. The Gift clearly had the most genuine emotions on screen in any Trek episode.

RE: The Q and the Grey - It really was nonsensical trash. SFdebris's review said it all.
