Re: The most disliked episode of DS9 - Part Three

Drat, I need to be starting my day. This round will probably have ended by the time I return. *crosses fingers that "Meridian" is at or near the bottom* Seeya, everyone! Have fun!

The House of Quark, brilliant little episode, one of my favorites. Great Quark episode, and a great Klingon episode because it shows them needing to be taught about honor and courage, by a little Ferengi barkeeper.

Distant Voices is another personal favourite - I seem to like episodes that take place in the heads of the characters, and I thought Siddig did a great job playing Super Old Cranky Bashir.

The Adversary - love the claustrophobic feel of this episode and how it allows the characters to be paranoid (very unusual in Trek).

Saving "Defiant"--has some good action, follow ups to earlier DS9 and TNG and helps to setup later episodes.

Wow anyone who rates DS9 at the top of the Trek Tree hasn't had to decide which of these turkeys to save.

I'll go for The Search (I) I like the Defiant.

Facets, it's the most interesting Dax episode (even if it's not so much about Jadzia) and I liked getting to know more about her previous hosts. Meeting Curzon at last was particularly interesting.

Also, Quark talking about the beauties of motherhood.

Yeah, people often tend to see season 3 as the turning point for the series, when it started to become great, but....aside from a half-dozen highlights, I think it's probably the weakest season of the whole show.

A no-brainer: Past Tense II saved. How could this have remained on the list for so long? An excellent two-parter of which this is the slightly better part: Exciting and with a thing or two to say about the state of US society.

I actually consider Past Tense I the most interesting half. Certainly the more thought-provoking of the two. Both safe now anyway.

w00t, time to swing by real quick and save an episode!

The Abandoned
Meridian
Prophet Motive
Through the Looking Glass
Family Business

And I knew it'd come down to this! There are still a few here I rather like but aren't terribly popular. "Heart of Stone" gets the save -- sorry, haters! -- mainly because Nog's arc really takes off here.

Phew, back from work to save something at least!

I'm shocked The Abandoned made it this far, so I'll save it. I just really like Odo in this one.

Can't vote in this thread anymore, it's like trying to decide which red headed step child you want to beat least.
