[first lines]
Sisko: Dax! I can't believe it!
Ensign Ezri Dax: I can hardly believe it myself. But... I'm Dax. I mean, I'm not Jadzia Dax; I'm Ezri Dax. But I have all of Jadzia's memories - not to mention Lela's, Tobin's, Emony's, Audrid's, Joran's, Curzon's - am I forgetting anyone?
Sisko: Torias.
Ensign Ezri Dax: Right. You're probably asking yourself, "Who is this person, how did she get the symbiont, do I even want another Dax in my life, does she always talk this much?" These are all very good questions; and I wish I had good answers ...

Mixed feelings about a mostly well done episode
5 September 2010 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

As a man who loves star trek since its incarnation, I have very mixed feelings about this episode. First, I realize that Ben Sisko is a religious figure to the bajorans, but his abject dismissal of his family is upsetting. Especially since he is the family Captain; something Kirk and Picard (My favorite) were not, for different reasons. I have no one to blame for this, especially since the effervescent Avery Brooks played his part brilliantly as usual. His dedication to the "wormhole aliens" was just a bit unnerving in this one, given his wonderful family.

The other issue I have with S&S is that Worf shouldve grieved more heavily for his fallen love. I know many have brought this up with the subsequent films (completely warranted criticisms) but between Quark's whining and the rest of the rag tag crews banter...I just felt empty. This was the love of Worf's life, and he shouldve plunged a dagger in the ferengi's neck for his disrespect.

I think this episode is a bad example of what DS9 has to offer. As a series it was a worthy follow up to the brilliant Next Generation, and vastly superior to the poorly written and badly acted tripe of Voyager and Enterprise. For a good example of what DS9 was: I suggest "In the Pale Moonlight" a tour de force performance by Brooks and a damn fine piece of Trek writing.
