Is it me, or is the TR-116 vastly superior to any other personal weapon we've ever seen in Trek? With a phaser, you can shoot only what you can see. Phasers are susceptible to many kinds of jamming, despite the supposed advantages of "regenerative" phasers mentioned in the episode. But with a TR-116 you can shoot through walls, through rocks and even mountains if you want to - all without your enemy knowing where the bullets were coming from. If I were Starfleet, I would be building these things just as fast as I could!

Also, when Ezri comes into Ilario's room she asks how he was killed. Er, Ezri? There's a gaping hole in his chest, dear. What do you think killed him, old age?

Joran is imaginary, right? He's not really there, he's just in Ezri's mind - he says so himself. So when Chu'lak shoots at Ezri near the end and causes gas to vent from the back wall, how come it blows his hair around all over the place?


When somebody starts murdering the crew of Deep Space Nine using a modified version of an old projectile weapon, Ezri must explore the mindset of the killer by calling up the persona of Joran, a previous host and ruthless psychopath. But just how far is she willing to go to catch her man - and will she be able to control her own violent impulses?


A pretty good Ezri episode. The gun is a cool idea, too.
