Story: Field of Fire

Another bad Ezri focused episode. I know they had like one season to give her episodes, but I don’t think anyone wanted to watch half of the last DS9 season getting to know a new version of an old character. They should have dropped her from the word go, and just continued the show with no replacement. Let’s focus on Sisko, lets give Jake an episode, lets have some time with Bashir and O’Brien, or have Worf dealing with Dax’s death more. Instead we get this terrible and boring episode about Ezri trying to catch a killer (why she’s on the job is anyone’s guess) and channeling her memories from Joran to do so.
If the Ezri stories were even good it might be a different story, but most of them aren’t even fun or captivating or smart at all.
