||Nearly every episode in the later seasons of DS9 felt heavy, awesome, important, like I was watching something that mattered. This is one of the major reasons DS9 has taken on a shadowy, almost legendary status in my mind. Who'd have thought it, after season 1 bored me so badly I gave up watching it for years, and only ended up giving it another try after Voyager lured me back to Trek? Anyway, while I'm not sold on this being one of DS9's finest efforts, it is well executed. Trek, in particular DS9, never seems to fail when we get two characters stuck in a room: we've had Sisko and Dukat, Quark and Odo, By Inferno's Light and probably many others.
