Had the misfortune to catch this episode again (only second time seen) and it was as dry and dull as first time around. I think there's a germ of a good idea in there (the price of utopia) but so much lets it down: writing, casting, tone. Brooks is lacklustre; Strickland is obviously nuts and unsympathetic. I wondered whether different casting might have helped? Perhaps Bashir and/or Keiko on mission instead? Then you'd at least have medical ethics and maybe Keiko being tempted by the 'green' agenda? I'd definitely recast/redirect Strickland. Anyone else have any ideas?
