  • A reasonably effective courtroom drama which enables one of those great 'what is the nature of existence' debates that Trek so loves

    6.0
    'Dax' is a courtroom drama that effectively deals with some complex subject matter without excessively confusing the audience. It's well-scripted (by original series veteran DC Fontana, no less) and ably performed and the coda lends the episode a satisfying emotional resonance.

    But it loses points, however, for its rather lethargic pacing. I'd be lying if I said that 'Dax' didn't drag in places, in spite of being directed by David Carson, who did such a great job with the pilot episode. But in spite of a propensity toward dullness, 'Dax' is still a solid, interesting and quietly poignant character piece that offers some neat character development for Dax - who at this point in the series is still a 'work in progess'.
