A wonderful Star Trek episode
There isn't any episode of "Star Trek" quite like "Explorers". It is at heart a character study, with excellent scenes between Sisko and Jake. A little creative license is taken with the solar sails, although that didn't stop the episode being given an award by the Space Frontier Foundation for its creativity. The inside of the solar sailing vessel is also very interesting looking and quite evocative of a Jules Verne novel.
The episode also has an excellent "B" story with Bashir facing a competitor from Starfleet Academy and features Bashir and O'Brien together singing when drunk.
Not the worst Star Trek episode
Deep Space Nine is my favorite series, but this one is probably one of its worst. However, due to Deep Space Nine's well defined characters, it is still watchable, unlike many other of Star Trek's worst hours.
Armin Shimerman puts on a brave face when madeup as a Ferengi female and there are some genuinely funny scenes, such as when he tries to fend off Nilva's (Henry Gibson) advances. Jeffrey Combs is brilliant as always, with his character of Brunt getting what he wants most - power. He has it, but only for a few days. Wallace Shawn is also fantastic as the temporarily deposed Zek.
Its interesting to note that the late Michael Piller called this a classic when he read the script. While the finished product isn't, its definitely better than the worst episodes of the other Trek series.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Duet (1993)
One of the best episodes of the best Star Trek series
This is the best episode of Deep Space Nine's first season, one of the best episodes of the series and one of the best episodes of the Star Trek franchise.
Everything works in this episode. The cast's performances, especially Nana Visitor's, are excellent. Harris Yulin puts in one his amazing career's best performances as Aamin Marritza, a Cardassian who is disgusted at the war crimes his people committed on Bajor during the Occupation. To make his people admit their guilt, he disguises himself as the most bloodthirsty and cruel Cardassian on Bajor during the Occupation.
This is episode is the favorite of Nana Visitor and author Terry Erdmann among many others.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993)
The best of all the Star Trek series
Deep Space Nine was not well accepted after its debut in 1993. The 'fans' had gotten used to the exploration of the Next Generation. However, the 'static' nature of the show led to the creation of Star Trek's finest characters: Sisko,Odo, Kira, Dax, Bashir and Quark. It was also the first series with a large number of recurring characters. The recurring villains were also the best of the saga with such memorable characters, such as Dukat, Weyoun, Damar, the Female Changeling and many more.
The final two seasons dealt with the most ambitious project ever attempted in the entire Star Trek saga- the Dominion War. As well as possessing excellent special effects, the cost of war was also excellently portrayed in several episodes.
For the ultimate example of Deep Space Nine's status as the best Star Trek series, one only has to look at the late Star Trek: Enterprise. The season three arc of the Xindi crisis was 'borrowed' from DS9, as was the three part arc of Enterprise's season four 'borrowed' from the first three episodes of DS9's season 2.
The Howling (1981)
The best werewolf movie ever made
Much better than American Werewolf in London in many ways. The transformation sequence here was far scarier and the werewolves here were the way werewolves are supposed to be- they walk on two legs not the big dogs in American Werewolf
