Another thing I didn't like and Im sure some would disagree and that's fair enough but its the overt racism theme.

Thing I like Sisko, he was my favourite captain. I never thought of him as the black captain, I don't think I really even noticed or cared he was black. Well I noticed but it didn't really stand out as anything special if you know what I mean.

But this episode seemed to use his colour and pin the whole racial issue on him. It effectively made him the "black captain". It called attention to his colour which I think is a bad thing.
Well of course the ep's going to call attention to color, it's set in the 1950's.
I just dont think something that overt was needed.

But then Im a child of the 80's so the problem with racism at least in my area is not really a big deal compared to early generations.
