The crew were given the team name "Niners". This became a name for fans of Deep Space Nine. See more »


A player missing a base (including home plate) does not need to be tagged with the ball. Instead, the defensive player just needs to tell the umpire "he missed the plate (or whatever base)", and with the ball in hand or glove, step on the missed base to record the out. Additionally, the Vulcan base runner should have been considered out as soon as he left the field while the ball was still in play, but both of these gaffes are probably the result of the players and umpire not fully understanding the rules.

I'd rather take a line drive into my teeth than see this terrible episode yet again!!!
26 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am currently re-watching all the episodes of all the "Star Trek" shows. I know this isn't exactly a noble pursuit, but so be it. When it comes to "Take Me Out to the Holosuite", it's THE episode I remembered more than any other--and NOT for a good reason. I remember it as the absolutely worst episode of the series--one that is 100% irrelevant and which embarrassed me the first time around. Being a reasonably fair person, however, I am making myself watch it again--just in case my recollection is in error.

When the show begins, you see Captain Sisko and his previously never mentioned arch-nemesis, some haughty Vulcan who commands an all- Vulcan ship for the Federation. Out of nowhere, the Vulcan suggests his crew battle DS9 in a baseball game--and Sisko quickly agrees. Sure, he loves baseball but the game is extinct on Earth and no one else on the station knows much about how to play--let alone beat the Vulcans.

So, is it as rotten as I remembered? Yep. The episode is the epitome of the term 'lightweight' and is evidence that the series might just be jumping the shark! Too many more like this, and you'll be praying for the end of the series! Yuck!!

And still my vote for the single worst episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9".
