Trekathon 320: The Maquis (1) (DS9)

March 21st, 2012

The recent Cardassian treaty isn’t going down well with some colonists.

And hey, it’s that plot thread from the previous episode of TNG being picked up in another series, and one that is very important for the background of Voyager. Unfortunately it’s the only time this is done – there’s only a few episodes of TNG left, and the setup of Voyager prevents this kind of trick. But it’s also another step down the road towards a less ‘story of the week’ show.

As is standard for 2-part episodes, this is a nice setup. It does drag a little in the middle, but not too badly all things considered. The only real nit I have to pick is that this ‘settlers in the DMZ’ thing has come out of nowhere, but that’s a minor quibble.

320 down, 417 to go.
