Mommy dearest...
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Chief O'Brien has disappeared and it looks like Ezri Dax can assist in efforts to locate him. This is because she lived in New Sydney and that's where O'Brien was last seen. Plus, her family is rich and well connected, so they might be able to assist.

When she arrives home, you can see why Ezri has little contact with her family as well as why she is so timid. Her mother is THE boss of the family and she delivers a long series of emotional digs that you can see the effect it has had on her brothers who remained at home. Just how badly this impacted her younger brother becomes obvious at the tragic ending. All in all, watching this particular episode is a bit like watching a fusion of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and "Mommy Dearest"! Fascinating.

By the way, the mother is played by Leigh Taylor-Young--of "Soylent Green" fame.
