Fate of Tom Riker

Story: Defiant
Written By: Ronald D. Moore
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1994

Tom Riker makes his second and only other appearance in this solid DS9 episode. Posing as Will from the Enterprise, Tom charms his way into Kira’s heart and onto the Defiant, which he steals…because he has joined the Maquis.
It has some great acting from our regulars, and Alaimo as Dukat, and I think Frakes gives one of his best Trek performances in a long while, and in all honesty probably his last great performance in Trek.

All in all there is plenty to find both dramatic and thrilling in this one.
