    I suspect WW3 was a significant cultural bottleneck, especially with First Contact coming soon thereafter.
    (Oh, and everything being nuked to shit.)

    I could see everything before First Contact being lumped into the Before Time.

    I love how a baseball played a not insignificant part of driving Dukat insane.
    Just over those six episodes, he starts off playing with it like a trophy, and ends up throwing it into his hands like a desperately needed stress ball.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    dukat goin space-crazy is fuckin awesome. dukat might be the best villain in the entire franchise just based on the performances, he's enthralling to watch, especially in that one episode where him and sisko are stranded on that planet and he's just goin N U T S

    That should really have been Dukat's last episode.

    Actually, I think Dukat's actual last appearance should have been when he's completely broken up over Ziyal's death and hands Sisko his baseball back. But I guess Waltz was fine too.

    The one good thing Dukat did in Season 7 was giving Damar a pep talk.

    Oh, yeah, no, Dukat's actor is a joy to watch. Come to think of it, all of the prominent Cardassian characters are a joy to watch.

    But Dukat's storyline in the last season was just a train wreck I could have done without.

    i kinda feel like it would have been more effective in the end to have kai wynn be the real BBEG, but then i also think that it was important for An Cardassian (not necessarily Dukat but who else are you gonna get at that point) be the villain at the end, if not just for symbolism's sake, because otherwise i'd get the feeling from the ending of, like, "oh the bajorans were their own worst enemies all along!" or something dumb when, like, nah it was the space nazis i super promise.

    this thought isn't fully formed but i hope it's at least somewhat coherent.

    edit: having said that though, yeah the whole romance sub-plot and... yeah it's weird af

    The only thing that grinds my gears is when they call stuff like the Beastie Boys "classical music". Just... no. That doesn't work. We don't call swing music from the 20's "classical" and we never will either. The closest word that matches is "oldies", but even now that sort of refers to a sort of specific era of music (40's-60's generally).

    I liked Dukat right up until he slept with Kai Winn. And that's because Louise Fletcher did such a good job at making Kai Winn a real character to hate.

    "ancient earthlings, according to archaeological survey, were fascinated with plastic, silicon, glass, and steel phalli, with other construction materials appearing in cruder forms in earlier periods. by the early 21st century, these religious fertility icons had achieved such a proliferation among the ancient citizens that there were temples devoted specifically to these objects! we know these were temples incidentally because of the effigies of sheep found within, made of a non-biodegrading material that our scientists are currently analyzing! we believe these objects, when inflated, were pierced with the long ceremonial needles, found on site and likely also used to attach the crude pieces of steel jewelry also recovered nearby, mimicking more ancient forms of animal sacrifice."

    And next to it, the archaic "Se-Ga". We're not sure exactly what it's purpose was, but according to ancient texts, it does what Nintendon't.

    It makes sense really. Like there would be down time, and I assume most people have non like dangerous hobbies?

    I mean we also see on TNG that data liked to analyse music, Geordi Creeped on women, Riker had that MMA thing, Worf was into klingon cosplay, and O'brien hated himself enough to marry keiko.

    I'm not sure the guy who put Beastie Boys into Trek actually knows a distinction exists between classical = old and classical = Classical period (1750-1820).

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    Future people referring to the Beastie Boys as “classical” feels perfectly plausible to me. Definitions shift and broaden over time. As SiliconStew points out, the colloquial meaning of the term has already broadened to encompass music outside the “classical period”, like baroque music and romantic music and even modern day orchestral music.

    Okay so Odo and Garak went on a jaunt where they witnessed a Changeling posing as a Romulan leader to lead them into a trap

    And since then, there's no way to test folks as changelings? Some sort of scan or something they could place on the station? Other than Odo they're all potential enemies of the Fed, get on it guys
