Story: Extreme Measures
Written By: Bradley Thompson & David Weddle
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
“Extreme Measures” is not only the weak link of this whole final arc, but it is also a terrible episode on its own. It doesn’t fit with the rest of the story in this arc. It is also the only episode that disrupts the rest of the story. Even the production team admits they faltered here.
We don’t get much else in terms of the rest of the ongoing story, Dukat and Winn aren’t really featured, Kira and Odo have a moment but we lose sight of them quickly…it just stops the action and unfortunately it isn’t even that entertaining to watch…which is really rare in terms of O’Brien and Bashir. They do cure Odo though, so at least that’s done.
Shame, everything else in this arc worked, but I guess having so many writers trying to bring closure to so many things you can expect a little bit of faltering.
