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.
The thing that still blows me away about this episode is that it takes the sci-fi concept and turns it backwards. We know Ben Sisko and the crew as they are on the show. This episode takes the sci-fi and makes it real life and we see the charactors and story the other way around!
Remember what Ben's dad said;
"You are the dream and the dreamer. Keep the faith brother Benny."
Damn! That's a good god damn episode!
