holy shit holy shit it’s the baseball episode

was looking forward to this one

ds9 s7e4 

ooo vulcans! I like vulcans

Show thread

never mind the vulcans are cancelled bc they’re speciesist

but lmao the vulcans have challenged sisko’s crew to “a contest of courage, teamwork, and sacrifice”

everyone’s hyped at this
worf, conversationally: we will destroy them

and then sisko reveals that the competition is baseball lmao

Show thread

lmaoooo apparently “learning to play baseball” involves memorizing a pile of rules

(note: I’ve never properly played baseball. the closest I’ve gotten was “soccer baseball”, which apparently is called “kickball” in other parts of the world)

holy shit, this vulcan dude has basically been bullying sisko for years, what an asshole

Show thread

ds9 s7e4 

lmao they’re playing baseball now

a bunch of the ds9 team: “hey, batter, batter, batter!”
worf: “death to the opposition”

5 minutes into this ep and there’s already talk of living in a society

tbf imo bashir has a point here but welp

“I can’t break the laws of physics”

shades of scotty, there

I admit I’m not the biggest fan of the episodes that delve into bashir being “genetically enhanced” (tbf partly bc I heard that apparently his actor didn’t like the idea either, and deliberately underacts in scenes where it’s mentioned, and that’s what I think about every time I see scenes with it)

Show thread

ds9 s7e5 

hmmm. not big on this episode

just as I was thinking that... oh goddammit bashir, not with your patient, what

conflict of interest whomst?

Show thread

ds9 s7e5 

ohhhh thank you o’brien, he literally just voiced my exact concerns with the conflict of interest thing and also with the rushing

Show thread

ds9 s7e5 

also dammit, is this gonna turn into some flowers for algernon thing? I was worried about that

Show thread

ds9 s7e5 

ugh, yep, they went there

for fuck’s sake

I am not enjoying this episode

Show thread

ds9 s7e5, bad? (idk how to tag) 

oh okay they didn’t do a flowers for algernon thing but holy fuck, bashir should really really really not have tried to get in a relationship with her, seriously wtf

Show thread

ds9 s7e5 

okay thankfully there was the realization that “oh yeah this is medically unethical” but holy shit that was a rough episode

but I’m a trek completionist, apparently, so I watch them all, even the bad ones, welp

Show thread

@variance i don't enjoy any of the eps with the genetically altered peeps. they're not handled well

ds9 s7e5 

@taweret yeah, same, it’s kinda upsetting tbh

ds9 s7e4 –and– ds9 s4e3 

@variance this is a favorite of mine, as well. (And the one where Sisko disappears.)
