YATI : The visions of the Prophets have always been similar - a series of people you know appear, taking turns to spout sentances at you. They are yellow-tinged, and a slow heartbeat sounds in the background. So why are these visions suddenly completely different?
Great Moment : Although it's a very serious and worthy episode in many ways, it's great fun to watch this one and try to work out who is playing who. All those actors out of their usual heavy makeup!
Body Count : Technically none, since it was all a dream.
Quote : Ben Sisko : "And if I fail..."
Joseph Sisko : "I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith."

Plotline

When Sisko begins suffering from hallucinations again, he finds himself a science-fiction writer in America of the 1950's. His new work is all about the black Captain of a space station called Deep Space Nine - but will anybody want to read about the exploits of a black man in a culture where many don't even consider them Human?
