Storyline

Despite the Dominion threat, Sisko still feels the urge to explore the Gamma Quadrant. The crew stumbles upon some unusual distortions in a system without planets. Suddenly a populated planet appears out of nowhere. Inhabitant Seltin Rakal tells Meridian shifts between the dimensions. In the other dimension, where time doesn't pass, they are non-corporeal, here they take on real form. One of the other Meridians, Deral, and Jadzia seem to really like each other. He tells the time in this dimension is growing shorter and shorter with each shift and eventually Meridian will cease to exist. Meanwhile Kira has her own love problems on DS9 with the alien Tiron. She rejects him and he turns to Quark to ask for a holosuite program with a recreation of Kira. Quark tries to make an image of her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Snoozefest
18 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is really boring. The whole "extra dimensional" aspect of the story is beyond science fiction and into science stupidity. On top of that they layer an extremely cheesy love story. Wouldn't be so bad if the male lover's acting weren't so terribly unrealistic. Someone in the writing staff of ds9 has the idea romance and seduction occur when a man stares creepily at a woman in awkward silence. It's atrociously shallow and silly. There's a "filler" subplot involving an alien trying to get a holosuite program of Major Kira. It's stretched-out too long but it builds to a funny, if cheap, laugh. Overall this episode has been one of the weakest in the ds9 series until this point. Totally forgettable.
