More importantly, why do you need to care about these people? It's a one-off episode.
Without emotional attachment and investment, it's just a sequence of images. Dull as paint drying.
Not if it's interesting. Emotional attachment to the characters is not the end-all of entertainment. Sometimes just having an interesting scenario and seeing how it plays out is very entertaining.
I don't understand this emotional attachment stuff. For me the best character on the show was Shran and I wouldn't wanna have anything to do with this fellow in the real world. Same in the case of DS9's Garak. Brilliant character but nobody you'd trust or care about in the real world.
