Did You Know?


When auditioning women for the role of Lisa Cusack, the producers never saw any of the people who auditioned. They just listened to audio recordings instead. Debra Wilson was chosen based on the sound of her voice alone. Director Winrich Kolbe didn't allow Wilson to meet the cast until after filming was finished. See more »


Lisa's Voice: How did they let you out of medical school with this kind of bedside manner? Are you sure you're a doctor?
Doctor Bashir: I graduated, second in my class in fact.
Lisa's Voice: Ooh! And we're especially proud of that, aren't we?
Doctor Bashir: I get the feeling that it's gonna take me some hours to crawl out of this rather sizable hole I've dug for myself.
Lisa's Voice: Not at all. It'll take you days!

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.
