||Now this is one of those "official" reviews I can agree with. I love this episode, it gets a lot of things right and *feels* important, like something major is drawing to a close. It's a sad shame to end the Eddington storyline but I suppose it had to end sooner or later. I agree that the Maquis is treated way too seriously, it's like having parents that punish their own children relentlessly for fighting back against cruel bullies. Star Trek always takes the view that the Maquis are wrong - murderers, vigilantes taking the law into their own hands - and apart from Ensign Ro, nobody ever really tries to empathise. I wonder what anyone would do if hostile, oppressive aliens forced you out of your home and the authorities suppsed to protect you let them do it? Let's face it, the Cardassians put up a generally poor performance in combat and only seem to have 2-3 ship classes that are defeated easily.
