Imagine if Kosh were in the wormhole in the pilot episode of DS9, forced to explain linear time to the Prophets. I think that would be the most confusing, convoluted, longwinded and ultimately, seemingly completely aimless script a writer would ever be tasked with.
Is that a challenge?
Oh what the hell, I'll give it a go:
Kosh: You do not understand, but you will.
Kosh: In the future.
Propehts: But you exist here.
Kosh: Yes. I have always
Prophets: Always ... never ... these have no meaning to us.
Kosh: You are a closed circle. You are returning to the beginning.
Kosh: .....You do not
Propehts: No, we don't.
*Approximately five billion years later ... or yesterday.*
*Kosh exits the wormhole, muttering what sounds suspiciously like a string of Vorlon expletives. He fetches Sisko from the station and brings him back into the wormhole with him.*
Sisko: Why am I here?
Kosh: You have always
Sisko: Oh don't give me that crap. You couldn't figure out how to explain linear time to them, could you?
Sisko: Up yours!
