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)

Brigadoon...in space!
21 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot from this is lifted from the play/movie "Brigadoon"...though without all the singing, Van Johnson, Gene Kelly and the rest. When the story begins, the Defiant spots a planet that just appears! They are invited to land and learn from these nice folks that their planet appears and they live their lives every 60 years. Then, it disappears after a bit and becomes invisible and the folks go to sleep for another 60 years! It's actually a pretty ridiculous idea but try not to think about it.

During their visit with the nice folks, a VERY frisky guy from the magical planet seems VERY bent on getting his groove on with Jadzia Dax. Slowly, Jadzia also starts having feelings towards the guy. In fact, she's so taken by him that she agrees to move to the planet to stay with the guy. Ultimately, this doesn't work, as the writers weren't about to write her off the show...yet.

Overall this is a reasonably pleasant episode though it's hardly original. Worth seeing but forgettable.
