Did You Know?


Captain Boday is mentioned for the second time in this episode, having previously been referred to in the second season episode "The Maquis, Part II". It was revealed in that episode that he and Dax had had dinner together several times. See more »


The title "Let He Who Is Without Sin..." is grammatically incorrect; "Let Him Who Is Without Sin..." is correct. The grammatically incorrect wording is a corruption of the Bible verse John 8:7, in which Jesus says (King James Version), "He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone[.]" See more »


[first lines]
Odo: So, what do you think of the O'Briens' plan to name their baby 'Sean'?
Captain Sisko: I kind of like it; 'Sean' - has a nice ring to it.
Odo: Except that in Bajoran, 'shawn' means 'swamp'.
Captain Sisko: The O'Briens know that?
Odo: I doubt it.
Captain Sisko: Someone should tell them.
Odo: I nominate you.

Yes, this is a really terrible episode...
5 January 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

There is so much I don't like about this episode--and I can see why one of the reviewers hated this one as well. During most of the episode, Worf behaves like an abusive and over-controlling boyfriend. He also is sullen, nasty and about as much fun as a colonoscopy! This alone is plenty of reason to hate this one!

When the episode begins, Worf and Jadzia Dax are set to go away on a sexy vacation on the sexy planet of Risa. However, at the last minute, several interlopers invite themselves as well and Worf is positively rude to all of them. While you could understand his desire to have time alone with Jadzia, he is constantly rude towards everyone. Once they arrive, everyone but Worf seem eager to get their groove on with the very promiscuous and fun-loving Risans. As for Worf, he sulks. However, when a group of crazy and one- dimensional conservatives arrive and try to ruin everyone's fun, Worf, for the first time, seems nearly giddy. He likes their messages of fear and doom--and they seem like the perfect way to compliment a Klingon vacation. Eventually, however, and very unexpectedly Worf realizes his friends are butts and he does a 180 degree change in attitude--one that really makes no sense.

The biggest problem with this show is that you feel like you are eavesdropping on a budding relationship between a supposedly sane woman and an abusive guy who feels he must control her every move. Instead of the pair inexplicably working past this at the end of the show, you really wish that she had obtained a restraining order and left the jerk! Considering how this episode seems to have no fit with the other episodes in the show, I really was left confused by the show and annoyed. What is its point?! I really don't think there is one. A giant mistake of an episode.
