I don't get the problems folks have with "Move Along Home"-perhaps someone who really dislikes it can explain why to me?

it strikes as pointless but fun-nothing great, but nothing terrible

"Move Along Home" is bad, but not 'worst in the series' bad. That dubious honor belongs to "Meridian." This list is also missing "Playing God" and "Let He Who is Without Sin..."

It's no coincidence that most of DS9's worst episodes feature Jadzia in a major role.

Say what one will about Rumpelstiltskin, but that character was almost a leprechaun. Good thing Colm Meaney put his boot in there.

Quite.

Actually, when DS9 originally aired, "Valiant" was one of my favourite standalone episodes of the sixth season. Granted part of this had to do with the gimmick of seeing another Defiant-class ship, but I did generally like the Red Squad plot and only really found their commander very obnoxious.

Re: The 12 Worst Star Trek: DS9 Episodes Ever

I was thinking that if Valiant can get a mention in this thread, then I'd 'like' to bring up Prodigal Daughter. I was getting a bit fed up with the Ezri overkill in the final season, and this episode in particular was one too far for me. I wasn't very invested in her family, and the mystery with the company and Norvo was dull. O'Brien shows up too late in the story, but when he does nothing interesting happens anyway.

I'm not sure why Ezri had to be anywhere near the follow-up to Honor Amongs Thieves in the first place, expecially as there was such a derth of O'Brien material that season.

It probably started out as just an Ezri episode, and then the writers thought it might be neat to follow up on "Honor Among Thieves" at the same time.

Re: The 12 Worst Star Trek: DS9 Episodes Ever

The only episode I consistently list as bad is The Muse, all others I enjoy to one degree or another but The Muse I skip most of the time when watching the series.

Re: The 12 Worst Star Trek: DS9 Episodes Ever

Q-Less has one of the best Q lines of all his appearances!

"Ugh! Picard and his lackeys would have solved this hours ago!"

Fascination is a personal favorite as I've always viewed it as "A Midsummer Night's Star Trek." Not sure if I'd call it one of the worst episodes though.

The OP does get some credit though for including stinkers like "Let He Who Is Without Sin..."

Its annoying that you have to click through every episode instead of just making it a list.

Profit And Lace--I do not remember what it was about, or how it ended, only that it was bad.

The Emperor's New Cloak-- bad. Or way too silly and over the top.

And this is why they had no money for extra special effects

Re: The 12 Worst Star Trek: DS9 Episodes Ever

Can't remember the name, but there was one episode where the DS9 crew played baseball with a group of Vulcans. Now THAT was bad...
And I haven't taken the time to compile a worst list yet, but I do agree with a couple on your list. I don't think Move Along Home is as bad as most people say, though. It's just a fun little romp that's neither good nor bad IMO.

That's the one! I couldn't stand it. It was way too silly and ridiculous. DS9 did comedy waaay better in a lot of other episodes.

Re: The 12 Worst Star Trek: DS9 Episodes Ever

No "The Passenger"? That's really high on the suck-list for me.

I disagree with "Move Along Home" being the worst. Sure, it's silly as hell, but I still laugh at it's sillyness.
