The best episode of DS9 - Part One

Okay Trek fans, this game was successful on the TNG board, and I hope it prospers here as well. Here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you play again. Not a very accurate way of determining the best episode, but a fun game nonetheless. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Q-Less

The Passenger
Move Along Home

Re: The best episode of DS9 - Part One

Well, I think the obvious first choice here is "Duet." I mean, the episode focuses on some random guest star more than it does most of the regular cast, and then after we spend all this time getting to know him, he up and dies at the end.

...

Okay, okay, I'm actually going to eliminate "Move Along Home." Why? Space hopscotch, that's why.

Darn, I wanted to take out Move Along Home! What an appalling hour of Star Trek. I guess Battle Lines gets the axe. Dull episode, blandly portrayed planet dwellers, and a pointless death for Kai Opaka.

I was gonna take out "Move Along Home"! D:

Babel. It felt like a comedy. I spent more time laughing than actually being concerned about the fate of the characters.

Taking out Q-Less. Q just didn't really fit on DS9, and this is probably his worst episode across any of the three series he appeared on. Plus, I've always disliked Vash - Jennifer Hetrick has no charisma and very limited acting ability.

I'm axing Past Prologue, because if I never see the Duras sisters again it's still ten years too early.

I might as well go again, and take out "The Passenger" for Siddig's awful performance.

Good-bye Progress. Sorry, but were we supposed to like the guest star, because he came of as an insufferable ass?

'The Nagus'

And not just 'cause its a Ferengi episode, but because ya can hear the Nagus laughin' & enjoyin' himself in the holosuites on the ground floor of Quark's bar. If the holosuites are soundproof, what's the point?!?

Actually, according to Memory Alpha, Peter Allan Fields wrote him to be a complete asshole and thinks that he was too likeable in the finished product.

And since I'm here, I'll blackball A Man Alone for the Scooby Doo ending.

^ Hmm... interesting. Bad writing then, I guess. Because I honestly got the impression that we were supposed to like him.

I take off Vortex - my least favorite of the ones remaining.

'The Forsaken'

Because there was never another mention of Pup again.

And because Kira said "My god..." to the Emissary instead of "Prophets! Fuck if I know!"
