Slow paced but moving story about senior citizens..., 20 April 2009
Author: karacter from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

You won't find any "fall out of your seat" space adventure here, and the story itself isn't particularly original and doesn't break any new ground.

Two elements, however, raise this installment above average- first, the excellent casting of veteran actor Brian Keith as the defiant and spirited farmer, Mullibok, and an outstanding and emotional outing for Nana Visitor (Major Kira)as she is torn between her devotion to duty and her growing affection, empathy, and respect for the father like Mullibok.

Brian Keith was one of Hollywood's finest and most productive character actors, with a career that stretched all the way back to silent films. An expert at portraying "gruff and irascible but soft on the inside" characters, he is perfectly cast here, and delivers a powerful, moving, and multi-layered performance. The fact that Keith is so well known to viewers adds to the impact of the show, as his familiar face, voice, and personality reinforces the idea that this could be your grandpa or your uncle being forced to make major life changes in his twilight years.

Also adding to the emotional power and effectiveness of Brian Keith's performance is the fact that his role as Mullibok closely mirrored his own private life at the time; indeed, his later years were shadowed by personal tragedy, unwanted change, and health issues (just like his character in the show). Interestingly enough, this fine and respected actor ended up taking his own life just 4 years after appearing in this episode, in a classic case of art imitating life. Proud & dignified to the end (just like his character Mullibok), he chose to end his own life on his own terms in 1997 rather than submit to a long and debilitating terminal illness and the lifestyle changes that it was sure to bring.

Also in this episode, Nana Visitor (Major Kira)turns in an outstanding performance, and we get a good look past her cold, defiant exterior to see how lonely & desperate she is on the inside. Her scenes with Mullibok, especially when she stays to take care of him after he is injured, are among the most moving & emotional ever seen in the Star Trek Universe.

A silly and pointless "Jake & Nog" sub-plot focusing on their efforts to be businessmen is mildly amusing, but seems out of place here; mixing it in with the much more substantial and meaningful Major Kira/Mullibok storyline only serves to disrupt the emotional pacing of the show. In addition, their sub-plot has a "Brady Bunch" feel to it, and is just way too campy to have any real meaning. Star Trek is watched by a lot of kids, true, but it is not a kid's show, and efforts to make it such only detract from the whole.

Not the greatest Deep Space Nine installment, but well worth watching to see a great Hollywood legend in one of his final screen appearances.
