I love the episode, but I feel it needed a phildickian twist at the end where Sisko finds out that Benny Russell was real and really wrote stories of Deep Space Nine during sci-fi's Golden Age.
However, I understand why that wasn't done (assuming it was considered), because then it opens up a whole can of worms in continuity about what the Star Trek universe is -- a real place or a place of dreams.
I was hoping that at some point Q/John de Lancie would show up, in a very short cameo. That would have meant that Sisko DOES write the stories about Deep Space Nine, but for real.
Everyone seems to rave over it.
I found the whole thing well boring.......
I watch startrek for the science fictions. The whole them of future and space ect
I don't watch startrek to sit and watch a 1950's drama about racism.
Thge only good thing about the whole thing was the acting.
By the way I find most holodeck episodes boring as hell too.
Is it really too much to endure 1 episode out of 170 that deals with 1950s racism?
