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

#2

“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!

#3

Cool, LeVar Burton directed this episode

#4

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

#5

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

#6

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:

#7

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.

#8

what a groovy freakosaurus, man

#9

Red Forman! :eek:

#10

WTF with Garak’s crazy hair there

#11

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

#12

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

People nearby? Obviously guilty.

#13

Odo is awesome here trying to make up for his error

#14

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

HAHAHA

#15

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

#16

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

#17

So Changelings are somehow magically psychic with solids.

Sure, that makes sense. :rolleyes:

#18

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

#19

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

#20

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).
