Re: Sisko and Dax in "Trials & Tribble-ations"

As others have said, I think it was a bit of a metafictional/fourth wall joke.

Whilst onscreen Kirk is the one who always gets the girl, Spock is very popular in fandom with many men and women finding him far sexier and intriguing than Kirk. His emotional distance and cool logic is almost Byronic.

Re: Sisko and Dax in "Trials & Tribble-ations"

Well "Trials & Tribble-ations" is an example of how to do a love letter to the fans. It's just a shame they had forgotten how to one a decade later.
