Weaker DS9 episode
12 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found this stand alone episode to be weaker than most recent episodes despite it being centred on Ezri Dax who is one of my favourite DS9 characters. As the story opens we learn that Chief O'Brien has gone missing while investigating the Orion Syndicate, a Mafia like organisation on New Sydney, a planet outside Federation jurisdiction. As Ezri's family run a large mining operation in the area she is asked to see them and ask her mother if her contacts know anything about the chief's whereabouts. It is rather awkward for her as she hasn't been home for several years and a lot has changed for her since she joined with the Dax symbiont. The chief is soon found but by then Ezri has suspicions that lead her to believe that her family may be involved with the Syndicate in some way.

While I often enjoy character rather than action driven episodes this one didn't really seem that interesting because Ezri's family wasn't particularly likable, I can see why Ezri left home and joined Star Fleet. There was no action to speak of and when we found out what was going on I didn't really care even though we were clearly meant to be sympathetic to the character concerned.
