Another fine review. I was surprised to see that “The Muse” story was written by Rene Echevarria AND Majel Barrett Roddenberry. Plus, her idea was to claim the unborn baby was Odo’s. Both plot and sub-plot seem like stereotypes of male fantasies--the pregnant damsel in distress, and the succubus preying on the creative young man. The director and the producers were unhappy with the story - Ronald Moore said, “We watched that scene [of Onaya with Jake] in dailies and we thought, are we insane? What are we doing? How did we get here?" At least there is genuine tenderness and respect between Odo and Lwaxana, they part on good terms - so not such a bad way for Majel to bow out. I still remember meeting her at a convention - so much warmth and generous spirit. And humor!
