Rebinging Star Trek DS9: The Alternate

Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 2 episode 12: The Alternate. In this episode the Bajoran scientist who studied Odo arrives at the station and everyone keeps calling him Odo’s dad. Everyone except Odo, that is! Dr. Mora is played by guest star James Sloyan who has played other characters in the Star Trek universe!

The Alternate

While everyone is annoying Odo by calling Dr. Mora his dad, there is a mystery to be solved. Odo, Dr. Mora and Dax bring a life form aboard that seems to be somewhat related to Odo. When that life form escapes from the lab and mysterious things start happening around the station, Odo is on the hunt for a monster. But oh snap, the monster just may be Odo himself.

    Season 1 of DS9 has a lot of episodes where Julian is creepy and the writers are experimenting with how to do normal Star Trek things on a station that doesn’t really go anywhere. This episode and the one before it feel more like season 1 pitches that got picked up for season 2 than episodes written for season 2 where they’ve started doing more with Bajoran politics and character focused story arcs.

      This is a good take and an excellent point.
