I watched a random episode of DS9 instead. It was the Aphasia Virus episode.

Quark has kept his bar open in violation of the lockdown, claiming it is an essential service.

There's a lot of DS9 episodes that get harder and grimmer to watch with each passing year.

That's a very good episode as Colm Meaney's acting chops are on full display; like the scene where he's losing his poo poo on DS9, rather than O'Brian's cheerful complaining

Honestly curious for a list of that

Actually that hosed up two parter with poor ghettos in the past springs to mind, but no fair picking that one, that was a criticism of RL politics at the time

Remember when Wesley got his mom trapped in a warp bubble and she went insane as the crew kept disappearing one by one? Also the one where Picard gets mind probed and lives a whole lifetime on that doomed alien planet and learns the flute?

I've only watched DS9 recently and that episode is really a peak example of "they needed people to watch it on fuzzy CRTs" because in high def it's really distracting how clean the slums are.

Let's compile a list of the O'Brien must suffer episodes

mind prison
infiltrating the space mafia
learning his space mafia friend's wife was brutally murdered
clone o'brien thinks he's real o'brien
demon possessed wife
presumed guilty in cardassian trial
any episode with the shoulder injury
"i tore me pants"
kid goes feral
possessed by tobin dax, the lamest dax
transporter clone riker is rather curt towards o'brien
baby carried by kira and subsequent sexual awkwardness
almost dying on that planet alone with bashir
tasked with getting worf drunk enough to talk through his problems
honey, i shrunk the runabout
peer pressured into telling a cloud to go away
blamed by kirk for starting the fight on the tribble station
transporter room duty on the D
nog pulls rank on the only enlisted man in star trek
huge irish head
excellent acting career that isn't recognized outside britain as much as it should be

I dunno, I think an engineer would have great fun playing the destructor

Remember the time when O'Brien literally died and was replaced by a time-duplicate from a timeline where DS9 was blown the gently caress up

Also when he got Bashir to learn alien poker-roulette to break Quark's winning streak but all for nought as Quark psyches Bashir into losing

And on Earth a changeling spy shows up as O'Brien right in front of Sisko and openly trolls the poo poo out of him

I last watched this episode in the summer of 2016 or thereabouts, and I remember actually saying, when Bashir asked just how Earth had let things get this bad at the very end, "well, you'll never believe the dipshit America elected president..."

Keiko did take the whole thing in stride. I do wonder if she was just like 'gently caress yes, I don't have to go through THAT all over again', especially considering the circumstances of her first child.

isnt it the "doctor turns to stims due to overworking himself" plotline? because they literally do that with the nice old white doctor in bsg

i don't remember though maybe he just smokes space crack and it's super rascist
