O’Brien gets punished on some planet, that gives him the memories of many years in prison without making him actually serve. I hate this episode. It is ridiculous. I think the thing I hate most is that its only intention is to be an “O’Brien Must Suffer” episode, and that it has no lasting affects on O’Brien.
He suffers, but what he suffers would affect him for a long time afterwards, but it is never mentioned again. I don’t think this episode is even interesting enough on its own to warrant being made.
