Star Trek DS9: The Ship (Ep 5.2)

Yeah they’re back. My weekly thoughts on the weekly DS9 episodes. This episode was about death. Finally, we get to see someone from starfleet die a slow, lingering death (although it’s DS9’s equivalent of a red shirt). This episode tried to cover the personal side of death during wartime, but it wasn’t very “deep”. Sisko stated the obvious. It didn’t let the audience figure out the point of the episode for themselves (maybe because the episode was so vague). The episode had its moments, though, and the “item” the Vorta was looking for was a nice plot development that caught me by surprise. Nevertheless, you gotta love it when Sisko decides to go psycho.
