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

every year it gets harder to sit through a Keiko episode

I have nothing against Rosalind Chao but those episodes are boring-as-hell filler

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"

transporter clone riker is rather curt towards o'brien

tasked with getting worf drunk enough to talk through his problems

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

S tier Trek episode


also you should include any episode where O'Brien has to play Falcon for the nth time in holodeck because Bashir must always indulge his narcissistic fantasies

I just remembered that in Babylon 5 the only major black character was the doctor and, coincidentally, was the only major character to get addicted to space smack

what a coincidence

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

I don't remember the details, other than he goes on walkabout for a few episodes and that cures him of his cravings

regardless, "[x character] turns to stims due to overworking themself" could apply to any character but they picked the one black guy to be that character

I'll give the writers the benefit of the doubt because I don't think they deliberately promoted a racist stereotype, it was just really insensitive, I think the correct term would be implicit racism
