Quotes

Kasidy Yates: About the guest list - I wanted to keep it... small, just family and friends.
Captain Sisko: Well, that's fine by me, there's only room for 30 or 40 people in the wardroom. -... - Kasidy, what else do we need to talk about? I have the feeling we're forgetting something.
Kasidy Yates: You tell me. You're the one who's been married before.
Captain Sisko: Well, that's just it, it was a lot more complicated before.
Kasidy Yates: People get carried away with weddings. I... just want it to be nice and simple.

Ezri and Worf go camping...
28 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When "Penumbra" begins, Ezri Dax gets word that Worf's ship was lost and he might have been killed. The Defiant goes in search of survivors but cannot find Worf. So, impulsively, Ezri goes in search of Worf using a runabout. Eventually she is able to locate him and life is great...until their ship is attacked by a Jem'Hadar ship. They end up crashing on a planet and Worf and Ezri now are forced to talk to each other, as they've been avoiding each other ever since Dax was implanted in her. But their interesting little camp out is cut short when the Breen find them and take them prisoner.

As the episode ends, the pair are still in custody and Sisko's mother (who is one of the Prophets) comes to him in a vision. She exhorts him to 'stay on the path' and not to marry Casidy. If he doesn't follow her advice, misery will follow.

The style of this episode and subsequent ones are almost like one long, long movie or soap opera--without and of the usual plots that are resolved by the end of the episode. As such, it's a bit hard to rate any of these shows individually.

By the way, early in the show, Ezri walks into Worf's quarters and you hear lots of dialog between Jadzia and Worf--as she relives the past. However, the dialog you hear and the captions you see (if you have the captioning on) don't match at all. They are from different past episodes. Odd, huh?
