The most disliked episode of DS9 - Part One

Okay Trek fans, "least disliked" has concluded, so now it's time for the opposite. The basic idea here is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your favorite or the one you deem the 'best.' 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. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Losers
Season One -

Emissary
Past Prologue
A Man Alone
Babel
Captive Pursuit
Q-Less
Dax
The Passenger
Move Along Home
The Nagus
Vortex
Battle Lines
The Storyteller
Progress
If Wishes Were Horses
The Forsaken
Dramatis Personae
Duet
In the Hands of the Prophets

Woo DS9! I'll save Emissary, as it's one of the best Trek pilots. Up there with The Menagerie.

So that's pretty much all the excellent episodes gone...

Saving Progress - another turning point for Kira, who got a ton of development in the first season. And I really liked Mullibok - he struck a perfect balance between antagonistic and sympathetic.

Wow, we lost Move Along Home and Babel so early?

I'm saving Dax, as I really enjoyed it. I liked how Jadzia was trying to honour the memory of someone that she didn't even know, purely because of Curzon. It began to define what it meant being a Trill, which, for Jadzia anyway, didn't seem to happen too much whilst she was around.

Re: The most disliked episode of DS9 - Part One

My problem with Dax (other than that it's a Dax episode ) is that it begins the tend of essentially having the Curzon personality overtake the Jadzia one. We learn so much about Curzon but comparatively little about Jadzia herself.

Past Prologue
Q-Less
The Passenger
The Nagus
Vortex
The Storyteller
If Wishes Were Horses
The Forsaken
Dramatis Personae

A Man Alone - a nice early character piece for Odo.

Ugh.... down to the dregs of the season. I guess I'll save Dramatis Personae. It's corny as hell and meaningless, but it's the best remaining.

The Nagus - Ferengi comedy episodes would generally only get worse and worse, but this first one wasn't too bad. I was still excited to see Wallace Shawn show up at this point.
