The real "Brigadoon" saves this...barely
17 June 2014 | by aarondyer-36-698771See all my reviews

The minute the planet appeared in space, I said to myself, "This is Brigadoon!" It was so obvious.

I loved Brigadoon but not because it was Brigadoon. I'm a huge fan of Cyd Charisse and Gene Kelly. They carried this. The music and singing and costumes carried it. These characters and actors cannot carry the DS9 adaptation of it. It succeeds only as an homage to the original film. It has little merit of its own.

On top of all that, we already know the outcome even if we don't know the film. Dax is a recurring character and can go nowhere. There is no element of surprise. This is a poor episode but bearable if you're reading or knitting while you watch it.
