Star Trek DS9 Episode 55 - Defiant

"Commander William Riker shows up unannounced and Kira shows him the Defiant, where he reveals his true motives for coming to Deep Space Nine."

I'm a sucker for these crossover episodes. I enjoyed the twist in this one. You see, Riker shows up on DS9 and Kira takes him on a tour of the Defiant. He then takes her hostage and steals the ship. Come to find out, it is really Thomas Riker and he is a member of The Maquis now. Remember him? The second Riker that was created by a transporter mess up back on TNG? So cool. I actually like Thomas Riker better than William, he is much more suave and badass. If only he had a scar or something to differentiate between the two. Like Tomax and Xamot.

Star Trek DS9 Episode 54 - Meridian

On a trip to the Gamma Quadrant, Sisko discovers a planet that comes from out of nowhere. Every 60 years this planet pops into existence from another time/space/whatever. It's a pretty neat idea actually. These people are called the Meridians. Dax falls for one of the Meridian guys and she nearly gets stuck on the planet while it is fading back out of existence. I'm still confused by Dax, I thought it looked like a girl but the Trill was a guy?? Or does the Trill not have a gender... Whatever. I can't wait until she leaves the show.

The sub plot was weird. There is this guy that is obsessed with Kira and asks Quark to make him a holographic replica of her. Which is just creepy. I assume he will try and have sex with it?? I mean what other reason is there.

Star Trek DS9 Episode 53 - Civil Defense

"Deep Space Nine is progressively locked down after O'Brien, Jake and Sisko accidentally activate an automated Cardassian security program. The program's counter-insurgency measures keep escalating until it initiates an auto-destruct. Gul Dukat beams on-board but is unable to stop the self-destruct sequence."

Non of this makes sense. I understand that they are still trying to understand the space station, but nobody was aware of this program?? A program that will destroy the ship without a real way to turn it off once it's activated???

Star Trek DS9 Episode 52 - The Abandoned

"Quark purchases a salvaged ship from the Gamma Quadrant and discovers an infant on board."

The boy begins to grow at a rapid rate and is soon a teenager...with super strength and aggression. He is also really ugly. He reveals that he is a Jem'Hadar warrior, created by the Founders. Odo, feeling guilty, decides to help the boy learn right from wrong. But it ends up being impossible as the boy is very violent. Which proves the point that you can take the Jem'Hadar out of the wormhole, but you can never take the wormhole out of the Jem'Hadar.

Also, Jake is dating a kidding.

Star Trek DS9 Episode 51 - Second Skin

"Kira is kidnapped by the Cardassians and told she is actually an undercover Cardassian agent."

I really enjoyed this episode. Even though I don't like Kira as a character ... actually for a show that I really do like, I think I hate almost every character...anyway, yeah this was a very interesting and original plot. Though it's full of more holes than JFK...which I guess is to say more than three. Anyway.

Kira wakes up on Cardassia, looking exactly like a Cardassian. They tell her that she was an under cover agent and now she is back home. They bring her to see her father, who is overjoyed. She is obviously not buying into this, but after time she starts to believe and she is very disturbed by this new revelation. Honestly, I started to buy into it too.

But, come to find out that it was all trick to get info from her. They kidnapped her and altered her to look like a Cardassian, then made this giant ridiculous ruse. Here's the small twist. That guy that was her "dad" actually believed that she was his daughter. This is because the Cardassians actually did use his daughter as a spy and altered her to look like a Bejoran. So somewhere out there, there really is a fake Bajoran spy woman!

I leave you with these words of wisdom, A wise man once told me this...

" Josie's on a vacation far away
Come around and talk it over
So many things that I wanna say
You know I like my girls a little bit older

I just wanna use your love tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight"

.....why would a man tell me this?????

Star Trek DS9 Episode 50 - Equilibrium

Dax's symbiont starts breaking down and she begins to remember the past of her former host. A musician guy. Bashir and Sisko take her to get fixed by the Symbiont Commission. They end up uncovering a cover-up regarding Dax's former host being a murderer. That's sort of it. The episode goes a little bit deeper as to how the host-symbiont thing works, but I'm still very confused by it.

Star Trek DS9 Episode 49 - The House of Quark

"Quark lies about killing a Klingon, Kozak, and is then forced to marry the widow, Grilka, founding his own 'House of Quark'."

I loved this episode. Quark is just so far out of his element. Klingon and Ferengi are such opposites and when Quark tries to assimilate himself into their world, well it's just so great. While first he is sort of freaked out, with good cause, he soon figures out how to use his brain to manipulate the Klingons and save his "wife's" home from being taken away.  It was good to see Quark not being a selfish prick for once.

Quark is then challenged to a fight by Kozak's brother. Remarkably he does not back down, and earns respect. Then he gets a divorce. Game over.

Sometimes I find these Klingon women very sexy. It's sort of disturbing.
