  • A chart-topper in the pantheon of bizarre Star Trek episodes.

    This has got to be one of the strangest story arcs done on DS9, that's saying something.

    It's not that it wasn't entertaining on some level (18-year old Molly is really hot and way, way too well-groomed). I just have no idea how you arrive at this sort of plot. Plus, what the hell is a functioning time portal doing in a Bajoran meadow... and why doesn't the federation take more interest in this obviously advanced technology ? And what is this never-before-mentioned super race from ancient Bajor ? Also, the ending was a total cop-out. It should have ended way more harshly.
