Did You Know?


Sisko's beating of the dead horse of intraspecies racial prejudice, supposedly unknown among humans in the Trek Universe's 24th century, has confused many viewers who feel characters of this era should be beyond that. It may make sense, if we assume he is channeling memories from his experience as Benny Russell in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Far Beyond the Stars (1998). See more »


Referencing a previous episode in which Jadzia Dax is in bed with her right leg and foot showing skin: Trills have spots that start at the forehead and go all the way down to the toes. In this episode, Ezri Dax is seen in a short skirt wearing transparent nylons; there are no spots on her legs. See more »


Kasidy Yates: There are times when I just can't figure you out.
Captain Sisko: Well - maybe that's part of the attraction.
Kasidy Yates: Believe that if you want to.

DS9 Gets Even More Preachy
17 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look, it's a great show, and the Star Trek series produced some of the best work on television. But it seems that someone along the line in the last two years decided to depart from not only Star Trek way of addressing issues, but the whole role science fiction plays in revealing the modern world to us through metaphor. When Sisco throws his hissy-fit that he won't go in the holo-suite because blacks weren't welcome in Vegas in 1962 - they violate a raft of sci-fi and Star Trek no-no's. First of all, this is the very first time that human racial resentment has been carried into the Star Trek future. Sisco's angry reaction is of someone who has suffered racial bigotry - which is not the case in Rodenberry's future. We've moved beyond it. It makes about as much sense as O'Brien refusing to go with Bashir into his James Bond program because the British oppressed the Irish. Or Bashir refusing to go to the Alamo program because Arabs wouldn't have been accepted in early 19th century Texas. It's idiotic and it violates the truly color-blind approach humanity has reached in the Star Trek universe. Science fiction addresses issues indirectly - like the original Trek's story of the planet that was racially divided by people who had half black/half white faces - but each 'race" had the colors on the opposites side of the face. Metaphor. Misdirection. That's how science fiction gets it done . . . not by throwing an Al Sharpton rant in the middle of the 24th century. Generally, it's a great episode and a lot of fun. But someone involved with that show insisted on grinding an ax

  • and accomplished the exact opposite of what they wanted to.
