Trekathon 334: The Search (2) (DS9)

April 4th, 2012

Odo learns about his people.

So, first of all – the ‘reset button’ simulation that most of the crew are in for the majority of the episode didn’t bother me too much. It was a nice chance to do something a bit more extreme, and the reset at least made sense and contributed to its own reveal.

Second, the Kira/Odo thing – Kira seems to have changed too much, too quickly. All of a sudden she’s all over Odo (although it’s still relatively subtle). It doesn’t feel earned.

Finally, the end of the episode. There’s a really good idea here, but the actual implementation just doesn’t quite work. The dialogue is too stilted, and the resolution too easy.

334 down, 403 to go.
