Trekathon 344: Past Tense (1) (DS9)

April 14th, 2012

A transporter accident throws Sisko, Dax and Bashir back over three hundred years.

The real problem this show has is that since airing it’s gone from 30 years in the future to 10 years in the future. It makes the ‘future’ shown a lot harder to believe.

As for the rest: they undersell the new future that the rest of the crew find themselves in. They could have at least done an ominous com message rather than just ‘everything’s missing’. The idea that worked best was the contrast between Dax and the others experience in the future, but by choosing the Bill Gates equivalent it didn’t quite land for me.

344 down, 393 to go.
