Re: Does It Get Better???
Actually I thought poisoning the Maquis planet was an elegant way of solving all of the problems the episode posed. The Cardassians and non-terrorists get to swap planets, Eddington is neutralized....how would simply killing Eddington have been a more effective solution?
Unless you can establish that TPTB specifically meant for Eddington to mirror McVeigh, (I haven't checked Memory Alpha) your claim is somewhat dubious.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
