Worst Episode Ever Edit
I know there was a little background info about how "disapointing" this episode was but maybe more could be added. I know opinion is generally discouraged here but I think this is a leading contender for the worst epiosde in all of Star Trek. I would apriciate any data confirming this opinion from anyone who worked on the show. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vince47 (talk • contribs).
- "A little"? I count four separate Background items, three of which are from people "who worked on the show". Apriciate? Disapointing. Epiosde! 184.108.40.206
- what?! I just saw this episode and I thought it was pretty enjoyable. Sure the last act with the cavern dragged a little but the twist was good, albeit a little obvious (the moment Bashir was removed from the game it was clear something like that was coming). I'd say it's better than a lot of the rest of season 1, certainly nowhere near the wost in Trek. Worse than Threshold? Spock's Brain? Sub Rosa?! --220.127.116.11 07:28, July 24, 2013 (UTC)
