Reviewer : Platonian Rating : 5
Review : This is arguably THE most important episode of DS9 -- of the entire Star Trek franchise. Why? Because it shows quite graphically exactly why the military should NEVER be in charge of the government. I never saw a better performance from Avery Brooks. I think he understood the gravity of the subject being discussed. Actually, everyone did a great job, from Brock Peters as Joseph Sisko to Colm Meaney as an ersatz Chief O'Brien. But the real star is the victory of right over wrong, of moral people of conscience over those who commit atrocities because they were "just following orders." I love the rehabilitation of Captain Benteen as she realizes that Admiral Leyton has betrayed Star Fleet and the United Federation. And what a chilling performance the very talented Robert Foxworth gives as the psychotic Admiral Leyton. In these days when we heap praise on going in with guns blazing, casually murdering innocents who "just get in the way" as "collateral damage," a re-viewing of this splendid morality play would be well advised.
