Trekathon 314: Playing God (DS9)

March 15th, 2012

Dax evaluates a Trill student, and finds a new universe on her windscreen.

Overall I found this a nice, but fairly flat episode. The bulk of the time is spent on the ‘be yourself’ advice to the young trill, giving short shrift to the pocket universe growing in the science lab. An odd choice of focus for a science fiction story.

But it was nice to get more insight into Jadzia, who normally comes across as a hyper competent cipher (inspired by Heinlein, perhaps?). It made her feel a bit more of a real character to hear about her history and struggles.

314 down, 423 to go.
