Very Interesting Coincidence
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not really rating this episode, but I simply want to point out the very interesting coincidence that the main underlying plot for it, i.e., an extradition hearing (here for "Chris in the morning"), is the same as that of Episode 7 of the first season of Star Trek Deep Space Nine (entitled "Dax")that aired exactly two months later (02/14/93) and centered around an extradition hearing for Lieutenant Dax. In both cases the somewhat improvised defense was successfully made on the grounds that the person being sought for extradition was no longer the same as the one who had committed the alleged crime (parole violation for Chris, murder for Lt. Dax) as a result of an extensive change of their personality (becoming a radio show host for Chris, changing host body for Lt. Dax). The "icing on the cake" is that for both episodes the hearing judge is played by the SAME actress, Anne Haney.
