Everyone had to visit Vic Fontaine like every day almost once he showed up but Nog wanted to just spend a few days in there after going through some real poo poo and they had to hold an intervention.

Nog made it too real, he was killing the vibe.

Vic is a better therapist than the actual therapist.

Garak's takedown of Ezri is devastating.

does 'you are cordially invited' count as an obrien must suffer episode

Similarly, it always irked me slightly that the Vorta are described as having no aesthetic sense, and I'm sure that's impossible for an intelligent being

my dude have you been to nexusmods

I always got the impression that the Vorta we see in the show are very, very different from the race they were before the Founders got their hands on them. Assuming such a race even existed and they weren't just created from scratch.

They outright state as much, the Vorta were barely-sentient arboreal primates uplifted with Dominion genetic engineering into their current state.

It was extremely funny to me that they felt so low in their confidence about having an out queer character that it was couched as like, a sub-component of an extremely ~wild and crazy~ alien lifecycle instead of just like, incredibly mundane.

And they still caught a bunch of poo poo for it because of the kiss, so.

that said, don't get me wrong, I broadly agree that the feds were brazen as gently caress

The Dominion: hi, we haven't marked any claimed territory or even made you aware of our existence until now but uh, this is all our stuff and also we just murdered a bunch of unarmed civilians, go away now kthxbye

The Federation, Klingons, Romulans, and Cardassians combined were no match for The Dominion. The combined powers didn't beat The Dominion, they beat a tiny fragment that was cut off from the rest by space gods living in a wormhole, and only at a huge cost. Remember, there was always an existential threat that MORE ships were just sitting on the other side of the wormhole, and the only thing stopping that was a minefield and later The Prophets.

There was no calculus The Founders needed to make. They were more technically advanced, had greater numbers, and their enemies were fragmented and easily swayed by Intel attacks. The only reason they lost (the tiny fragment of ships in the alpha, and 1 founder) was because of space gods that they couldn't have predicted would suddenly become active.

If the Dominion had actually done all the covert surveillance of the Alpha Quadrant they'd claimed, then they should have known that this end of space is lousy with capricious space gods that might snap them away on a whim and that that's one of the better outcomes of pissing them off.

Yeah, that still sours the ending to me. People whose family/friends died of pneumonia or childbirth or her Joe Arpaio prison box should be livid and ready to GTFO, gently caress that pat bow-wrapped "oh we learned so much about ourselves slaving away in the Iron Age for decades" bullshit.

the episode was good but i think they should have played the klingon thing differently


the best way to do it would have been to do up Michael Dorn in TOS-style makeup while the Defiant is in the 23rd century, and - here's the really important bit - nobody notices or comments on it in any way whatsoever. the moment they're back in the 24th century, bam, he's back to the ridgehead we all know and love.

That would have been just been beyond
