“There is more to life than the rule of law.”


“dispassionate historical view”
C’mon, Garak!? Postmodernism’s destabilization of epistemology must have had some impact on the 24th century… I mean, look at us in the 21st and the influence (still!) of the Enlightenment!


Cool, LeVar Burton directed this episode


Wow, we ran out of technobabble to explain what happened to send them into Odo’s dream!


As Tom Paris taught us, historical accuracy is a tricky thing. :slight_smile:


Witches! It could be witches! Some evil witches!

Which is ridiculous, because witches, they were persecuted, woman power, love the earth, and I’ll be over here. :wink:


on our favorite villain Dukat:

He wants to be loved. He’s the kind of dictator who thinks, ‘It’s not enough that I put my foot on the throat of the people I’m oppressing, I want them to love me for it.’ Dukat believes he’s the hero of his own story.


what a groovy freakosaurus, man


Red Forman! :eek:


WTF with Garak’s crazy hair there


well that was some fine law enforcement work, “Cardassians”


He only sees Bajoran hair in the mirror. :slight_smile:

People nearby? Obviously guilty.


Odo is awesome here trying to make up for his error


my “heart” is too big
yeah, so is your ego



“There is more to life than the rule of law”


“you’re not as solid as you think”
Ahem. Foreshadowing.


So Changelings are somehow magically psychic with solids.

Sure, that makes sense. :rolleyes:


Plasma field… mumbojumbo… you only noticed because they ran out of technobabble! :stuck_out_tongue:


Not a bad episode, but other than some character development for Odo, not a lot to say about it.


Agreed. I like that we got back to Terok Nor and I like the episodes generally that deal with the fallout of the Occupation (it’s scarily close to some stuff in my professional life).
