I like how Crichton is now wearing a peacekeeper coat he picked up somewhere, or perhaps it was left behind by Crais. He looks a bit playing dressups in that long swashbuckling thing.

I want that coat so much. It is just the best coat ever. I managed to find something as near to it as possible in a Berlin thrift store (well, 150 euro is not that thrifty...), but tbh it's a bit more Jack Harkness than John Crichton. Still - WANT.

I think the acting is fantastic with Chiana, the movements as though she has extra joints and is extra limber.. she looks like a marionette! Her odd inflections and almost hissing way of talking.. it's a very satisfying and believable alien package.
If I recall, Gigi Edgely (Chiana actress) is indeed trained in circus arts or gymnastics or contortionism or something, and she does use that very effectively to create a convincingly alien character. The black-and-white makeup is really the smallest part of her alien-ness.

TrekLit/DS9-R fans! Want a different vision of the Ascendant conflict and the DS9 time gap?

Read DS9 SEASON 10 and DS9 SEASON 11 !
