Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

You know, I always wondered whether perhaps Risa used to be a normal pre-warp world, until Harry Mudd escaped from the rehabilitation he was put in and landed there, introducing both warp technology and general bad taste to it. It's a shame Enterprise's Risa episode (which was better than Let... Sin, but still awful) blew that hypothesis out of the water.

It was nice to see more of Dax's spots, but unfortunately that was kept to a minimum (at least the bright out-door scenes) because of Terry Farrell's skin condition.
Skin condition? You mean she burnt up out in the bright sunlight?

I'm not sure what to say about LHWIWS that hasn't been said a million times before. It's just a total bodge of an episode.

Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

Worf is my favorite ST character and I think that's why I hate this episode sooo much. It sucks sweaty, hairy Ferengii balls. I can't imagine the actors were even able to take themselves seriously as they were filming it. After every scene I would have walked away shaking my head saying "that was seriously some bullshit"

The only redeeming thing, was, as you mentioned, the last scene with Worf and Jadzia. Great character defining moment. It's worth maybe an eighth of a star.

On a side note... maybe obtaining the rank of Lieutenant Commander provides you with certain benefits (no pun intended)? Such as discretionary use of auxiliary craft, assuming feasibility and CO approval? I mean, there can't be that many LTCDRs on the station, and I would think it requires a serious amount of work to obtain that rank. Shouldn't there be some perks?

I feel like we see stuff like this elsewhere in Trek; the only one springing to mind is (then-Lieutenant) Worf taking the shuttle to the bat'leth tournament in TNG's "Parallels."

Still, I agree that it is a flimsy aspect of the story.

Oh dear, GodBen must have died from delayed aftereffects of watching Let he Who is Without Sin... :O

Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

Neither of those episodes is that bad. Yeah, they're pretty bad, but not nearly on the painful level of Let he Who is Without Sin... or the A-plots of Meridian and the Muse. They even have some quite funny scenes. Unfortunately, the real worst episode of DS9; The Emperor's New Cloak, is still coming...

Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

Well, then to cheer you up: there's not a single awful episode coming up this season again; and only one bad one and one meh one (and both are near the end, still far away). The rest is all good or great. (at least in my eyes...)

Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

Yeah, that. Season five is easily the best season.

And then if you're still struggling, you could do all of your future reviews drunk.
