Storyline

Despite the Dominion threat, Sisko still feels the urge to explore the Gamma Quadrant. The crew Comes across unusual distortions in a system without planets. Suddenly a populated planet, named Meeidian appears. Inhabitant Seltin Rakal tells of Meridian's shifts between dimensions. In the other dimension, where time doesn't pass, the inhabitants are non-corporeal, here they take on solid form. One of the Meridians, Deral, and Jadzia begin to show feelings for each other. He tells her the time Meridian has in this dimension is growing shorter with each shift, and eventually Meridian will cease to exist. Meanwhile, Kira has her own love problems on DS9 with the alien Tiron. She rejects him and he turns to Quark to ask for a holosuite programme with a recreation of Kira. Quark tries to make an image of her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Major Kira: And?
Odo: And since I don't have taste buds, it was very unsatisfying, not to mention... messy.

Snoozefest
18 August 2013 | by MyOpinionIsFactSee all my reviews

This episode is really boring. The whole "extra dimensional" aspect of the story is beyond science fiction and into science stupidity. On top of that they layer an extremely cheesy love story. Wouldn't be so bad if the male lover's acting weren't so terribly unrealistic. Someone in the writing staff of ds9 has the idea romance and seduction occur when a man stares creepily at a woman in awkward silence. It's atrociously shallow and silly. There's a "filler" subplot involving an alien trying to get a holosuite program of Major Kira. It's stretched-out too long but it builds to a funny, if cheap, laugh. Overall this episode has been one of the weakest in the ds9 series until this point. Totally forgettable.
