Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Seven

This is tough because both Field of Fire and Badda Bing are high up on the 'worst episode ever' list.

I'll go with Field of Fire, because at least Badda Bing was trying to be stupid. Field of Fire is first set up like a bad CSI episode and then has cringe after cringe. "What do you see?" "People in pictures smiling." "I deduce from that the killer is a VULCAN!" Ugh. Just no. That's totally freaking stupid. A) If a vulcan became a killer it would be because the vulcan lost control of his emotions. B) Really, you deduce from the fact that the people who were killed happen to have smiling pictures that not only that is the reason those victims were selected, but that the killer is trying to destroy emotion. UGH. God freaking no.

I'll lose Once More Unto the Breach. It was great seeing Kor again, and he got a great send-off. It's just not as strong as what's left.

It's time for "Til Death Do Us Part" to part us. It was either that or Badda-Bing...

Farewell Image in the Sand. More Sisko the Prophet lameness.

I'm sure it's about to get booted out but I really like Badda-Bing. It doesn't take itself seriously at all and is totally fun. I love that shot of the crew making their way to the holodeck all decked out in costume. These guys are out for a good time!

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Seven

I guess I'll actually knock out Badda-Bing Badda-Bang. For what's left, there's plot-heavy stuff, and one fun romp. Now instead of a holodeck malfunction, the "malfunction" is built into the program, how convenient. I do enjoy the episode and the Ocean's 11 plot. Nice cameo by Robert O'Reilly.

It is bittersweet with Sisko singing "The Best is Yet to Come" to signal the finale story arc.

Gonna knock off the Siege of AR-558... great story, but the tactics here were horrible. Too bad they didn't have those wide beam phasers like they had in TOS... and earlier in TNG. That'd have won in about five seconds. Or heck, one of those transporter rifles from field of fire.. or primitive 20th century artillery...

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Seven

Tough but it's got to be "The Changing Face of Evil". Not a bad episode but I think it's one of the weakest ones of those that are left.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Seven

I eliminate Dogs of War. It seemed a little like a connector to the finale to me, and I really hate the Grand Nagus Rom thing.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Seven

I'm knocking out Strange Bedfellows - it's actually one of the key episodes of the finale arc since this is where Damar turns. BUT..... it also has bickering between Ezri and Worf, so goodbye.

That's exactly what it was. What You Leave Behind didn't have room to fit the Ferengi story, so they wrapped it up an episode early.

Oh this is hard... I'm gonna have to eliminate When it Rains... more of a transitional episode in that great arc than anything else. Good episode, but doesn't have the power of the rest.

Ouch, but I've got to eliminate "Treachery..." and it's case of very little to seperate them.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Seven

Tacking into the Wind, buh bye. Good episode, but none of the lead-ups can compare to the excellent finale.

What You Leave Behind is the well-deserved winner! The first and last episodes were each among the show's greatest. No other Trek show can claim that.

Wasn't expecting that. Wasn't expecting anything, but definitely didn't think that would win, what with the constant crying about the Pah-wraith part. Maybe that's just the non-Niner parts of the board.

I'm a big fan of DS9 who actually prefers the religious and political -centric episodes.
