Re: Was I the only one who disliked Far Beyond the Stars?
I like the episode but I think it's overrated. The whole affair was a little forced.
I thought it turned out to be the Pah-Wraiths behind his vision. Sarah Sisko said "The wraiths even sent you a false vision and you did not waver", presumably referring to his second 'Benny' vision where he's in a mental institution. (Or were they only behind the second one?)
Haven't seen the episode in years, but I took it to mean only the second vision of being in a mental institution.
