Quotes

Chief O'Brien: I have this... this growing sense of isolation. I see people, I... talk to them, I laugh with them... But some part of me is always saying... "They may not be here tomorrow. Don't get too close."

A Great episode ... but ...
30 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The USS Defiant receives a distress call from a Starfleet captain stranded on an alien world after her ship has been destroyed. She's stranded on a Class L world (inhospitable to human life). Its also surrounded by a strange energy field. The old mystery force-field bit.

The stranded Captain Cusak asks that they keep a constant conversation going with her to keep her alert and to make her feel less isolated, and naturally they all make friends with her because she's a great person.

A strange energy field that surrounds the planet is finally punctured and its has time-shifting (temporal) properties. Anyone else notice that the previous episode had a very similar premise with Molly? DS9 tends to do that.

On the planet they find the long-decomposed remains of Cusak's body deep in a cave, having been dead for about three years. They were communicating through time; mmm k.

The thing that really annoyed me was that here was a starfleet captain, dead only three years ... and the team that happens to discover her remains take it upon themselves to conduct a funeral??? Seriously??

Did they try to contact her friends and family at all? Truly strange.

The Quark/ Odo hi-jinx is hardly worth a mention. But besides the ridiculously self-important funeral they conducted it was a good episode! If not a little sad.
