Did You Know?


Funnily enough, although Rom is the worst player on the team, 'Max Grodenchik' is actually the best baseball player on the staff. He had to play with his left hand to give a bad performance because he was just too good at the game. 'Avery Brooks', Cirroc Lofton, Armin Shimerman and Aron Eisenberg are all accomplished baseball players but Nana Visitor is completely inept at the sport. See more »


The name on the baseball shirt that Colonel Kira is wearing changes from "Kira" to "Nerys" throughout the game. See more »


Rom: We're trying out. What about you?
Quark: I don't have the slightest interest in this... Human game.
Leeta: [scoffs] You know why? Jake says it's a game that takes heart. And you sold yours a long time ago.

lightweight but amusing episode
29 November 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A 'comic relief' episode that takes you mostly out of the ongoing 'Dominion War' story arc of the last season.

DS9 was already well past its prime by this time, but the characters were well-established, and the goings-on and subcultures and whatnot of a busy space station made for good background stories.

In this episode, another badly-overused plot device, a holodeck, allows the crew to accept a challenge to a baseball game form an old associate of Captain Sisko, but that's not the fun part.

The fun comes in the relationship between Sisko and his onetime colleague, between Vulcans and Humans.

There seems to be a largely-understated antipathy between the races. Vulcans can be annoyingly condescending, while they find Humans utterly inscrutable.

Sisko's Vulcan roommate in the Academy was a competitive rival with a clinical interest in human psychology. To Sisko's annoyance, he occasionally found himself the involuntary subject of his roommate's papers and theses.

Years later, knowing Sisko to be a lifetime baseball fan, his rival challenges Sisko and his crew to a game. Sisko accepts the challenge. He knows the Vulcans will be studying his team (DS9 crew) and probably get a bit annoying, but he can't resist a baseball game and the crew needed a diversion...

The Vulcan team, with no concept of 'fun', naturally plays to win. What other purpose could there be to play?

Sisko and crew play to have a great time.

Imagine the Vulcans' hollow victory, chagrin and befuddlement when the game is over and the DS9 team parties, celebrating its loss.
