Trekathon 294: Rules of Acquisition (DS9)

February 24th, 2012

Some Like It Hot takes on a Ferengi twist.

Overall an offensive and misguided episode, focusing on the single most offensive part of Ferengi culture. I simply can’t believe that in Gene Roddenberry’s future we’d tolerate aliens who treat women like this.

The rest of the episode doesn’t help. I find the Grand Nagus tiresome, and the aliens of the week looked like WWE wrestlers.

The only positive was a very small point – the first mention of The Dominion, soon to become a very big part of this series.

294 down, 443 to go.
