Trekathon 353: Destiny (DS9)

April 23rd, 2012

An ancient prophecy predicts doom as Cardassian scientists visit.

A slow and talky episode, but not in a bad way. We’re calling back to something that hasn’t been mentioned at all lately, namely Sisko’s night job as a Bajoran messiah. And there’s some nice development of the new peace between Cardassia and Bajor.

On the other hand, things are a bit dull. The only threat is to the worm hole, and we know that’s not going to play out. There’s a nice subplot with O’Brien and a Cardassian scientist who gets the wrong idea that could have been made more of, and the undercover spy gets hardly any use at all. So it certainly could have been a bit more exciting.

353 down, 384 to go.
