  • Li may be a legend, but he's sure boring. Fortunately, this episode is not.

    DS9's version of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" is, unfortunately, at its best when "the man" (famed resistance fighter Li Nalas) is not present. Truth be told, guest star Richard Beymer isn't that bad, though he's not that good either. The real problem is the writing, which makes Li Nalas a more interesting character when he's offscreen than on.

    Happily, Li is absent for much of the episode, an ensemble piece that moves along at a nice clip and has just enough bits throughout to keep things interesting.
