Trekathon 402: Crossfire (DS9)

Odo learns the first lesson of being in love: don’t keep it a secret.

Against the odds I kind of liked it. It’s a silly premise, and relies too much on people choosing to not talk to each other like adults. But because it is mainly Odo, with his ‘fish out of water’ background, it works. And there are some wonderful performances from Odo and Quark.

Less wonderful is Kira (who wonders around like an oblivious lovestruck teenager) and Worf. Worf is actually becoming a bit of a worry – he’s not getting much character development, and honestly doesn’t seem to serve much purpose in the crew at all. This week he’s filling in for someone on leave…

402 down, 335 to go.
