Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four

They did go to the "O'Brien must suffer" well a little too often. But I can understand why. For a lot of people he is the character they can most identify with. Of the whole cast I think only maybe Jake is as sympathetic.

I don't know. I always empathized more with Odo or Bashir (in later seasons) than any other character, but that's just me.

To the Death

For all the complaints about Voyager pushing the Reset button, this episode annoyed me for one reason: DS9 LOST AN UPPER PYLON. Not only was it just one brief scene, it wasn't even mentioned again and it was just like new in the next episode.

I shall remove Little Green Men. Kind of hokey and there are far better episodes left there.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four

Rejoined - Most Dax episodes suck, and this was no exception. It screamed "HEY LOOK, IT HAS TWO WOMEN KISSING", as if it were Plato's Stepchildren of the 90s. DS9 established it's a big no-no rekindling relationships of past hosts, which just happens to involve two women this time. But when it's Ezri later on with Worf or Bashir (in other words, men), it's no big deal.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four

I'll be the disliked one this time... Way of the Warrior. This episode is kinda like a piece of cake with 6 inches of frosting. Sure it looks flashy and great but when you bite into it, there's no substance. This episode was like that. It was all over the place, with all it's tangents... hey we have Klingons, hey Worf's here... they're here to fight the changelings, wait they're here to fight the Cardassians, Worf's discommedated again, oh he wants to leave Starfleet, but we have some great action sequences... what was this episode about again?

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four

Eliminating Rules of Engagement. The whole thing didn't make a lot of sense to me. We're supposed to believe the Klingons are involved in a ridiculously convoluted scheme to attack a medical supply convoy in the hopes that Worf will just happen to be in command of the Defiant. And that he will just happen to shoot at their fake target. And all of this just to make Starfleet look bad. Really? Are these Klingons, Romulans or bad James Bond villains? And how can they justify a civilian ship with a cloaking device? Meanwhile, Worf is the one supposedly on trial, yet he barely speaks during the whole thing.

I'll eliminate Indiscretion. It and Return To Grace are the only ones I wouldn't list among my favorites. That whole Dukat arc seemed like they tried to hard to contrive drama.

Broken Link... it really was anti-climatic with Garak offering the only interesting part... thankfully they didn't actually keep him in prison.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four

Hmm. I'll get rid of For the Cause here. It was a well executed episode, but the revelations of both Kasidy and Eddington just came out of nowhere. A bit of buildup in a previous episode or two would have done wonders.

I'll boot Homefront, a good episode but I like the others more. Really, what's the necessity in Sisko going to Earth?

I don't have a problem with the elimination. The final battle is a little silly to me. Hundreds of hardened Klingons board the station, yet they are brushed off like they're nothing. That kind of thing always bothers me a little.

Our Man Bashir - holodeck and James Bond... one of the weakest episodes of season 4 IMO.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Four

Starship Down - the others are much better. Out of the various plots, only the one with Quark and James Cromwell was interesting. Worf was a prick to the enlisted men. O'Brien had to tell him they weren't officers, and to order them around differently? Come on.
