Re: Sacrifice of the Angels Ending A Deus Ex Machina?
I don't know - were the Prophets really all-seeing? They weren't familiar with linear time, they seemed dimly aware of Bajor, but other than that they seemed pretty oblivious to what was happening at our simple corporeal level. Hardly omniscient. Seemed like Sisko was simply bringing the problem of the Dominion fleet to their attention.
Paraphrasing, they said there is no difference between what was, what is and what will come. That would indicate all seeing.
Pray patience, Worship, I but try to help!
Couldst thou forswear thy pompous attitude
And promise thou shalt ne'er call me that name?
