** I always took it as more of Sisko not playing the games Q likes to play and therefore being no fun.

** Another possibility? The part that draws the blood, and the part that shows he blood isn't steamless. He drew Sisko's blood into that part...at which point it shot off a sample of Changeling blood, which hey had on file from a variey of ways, either one of hose Changelings who they saw and fled...or Odo.

* Has anyone thought for a second what the life expectancy is for a being that is 300-400 years old and has had nine hosts? Because it isn't very high.

* Why did the Founders keep Martok and Bashir alive after replacing them? Wouldn't it make more sense to kill them so that they can't escape and expose the Changelings who replaced them? I suppose I could see why they'd keep Martok around (if his replacement is exposed, he makes a valuable prisoner in case of an exchange), but Bashir isn't important enough to the Federation even for that, and his replacement's assignment was to blow up the solar system he was in.

** And on that note, why does Worf immediately abdicate the Chancellorship in favor of Martok? Aside from the respect he obviously has for his BloodBrother, he may also remember what happened back in "The Sword of Kahless." To wit: he and Kor discover the legendary bat'leth wielded by Kahless himself, and the idea of using the sword to claim leadership of the Klingon Empire drives Worf and Kor to try to kill each other. Having felt the temptation of power and being driven to attempted murder because of it, Worf may have decided that he's not truly worthy of leading the Empire, so he yields to someone whom he considers incorruptible.

* In ''Far Beyong The Stars'', where each character from the series has a corresponding character from 1950s America, it is Quark (The Ferengi and therefore ultimate capitalist)'s counterpart that gets mightily offended at the accusation of being a communist.

to:

* In "The Visitor", the Klingons have been "making angry noises" but don't appear to have attacked and the Bajorans and Cardassians have entered into a defence pact. The Dominion war didn't happen, the pah-wraiths stayed locked in the fire caves, Jadzia is alive and her and Julian are together and have had children. It would have been better for everyone else if Ben Sisko had stayed lost in subspace.

* Keiko and Sisko's ethnicities in "Cardassians" and "Waltz" respectively. In "Cardassians," Miles O'Brien casually remarks about Cardassians, "Any compassion was bred out of those people a long time ago," to which Keiko angrily replies "That was a very ugly statement!" "I just said--" "I don't have to hear it twice!" Keiko is Japanese. Miles was talking about Cardassians the same way Americans were talking about her country during WWII, demonizing an entire population for the actions of their government. In "Waltz," Sisko shakes with rage while trying to remain diplomatic as Dukat tries to justify Cardassia's occupation of Bajor, ranting about how "inferior" the Bajorans were, and how "grateful" they should have been for the Cardassians' "help." This troper spent the entire scene thinking Sisko was simply channeling the reaction of any sane audience member, and only later remembered "Oh my god, Ben's African American! And he just listened to ''that.''"

*In the episode "Children of Time" the colony's Odo [[spoiler:alters the Defiant's computer to prevent the ship from going back in time]]. And four episodes later the Dominion War begins. Had the other Odo not done what he did nobody would've put up the minefield to stop the Dominion from sending convoys through the wormhole, or gotten the Prophets to eliminate the giant Dominion fleet in "Sacrifice of Angels" or any of the other things DS9 officers did to win the war. He may have [[spoiler:caused Gaia to never exist]] but in so doing he inadvertently saved the Alpha Quadrant.

* The Loves of Quark. He claims to hold traditional Ferengi values of gender and stuff, but none of the women he has fallen in love matches the ideal of a Ferengi Female. Dax; Grilka, the Klingon woman; Natima Lang, the Cardassian dissident; and Pel, Quark's only Ferengi love interest; are all strong, independent women. [[FreudWasRight Similar to his mother, one might say]]
