Star Trek (DS9): The Quickening – SF Debris

Opinionated DS9 Episode Guide watches as Bashir tries to cure a disease the Dominion inflicted on some people, but is overshadowed by a jingle.

About SF Debris


  1. Please tell me this is going to be about some guys chopping people’s heads off and yelling, “THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!”

  2. After seeing this review, I’m honestly wondering if his score would have been higher if this story about a lethal seemingly incurable plague was funnier.

  3. I’m guessing the problem with the episode is the subject matter is just too gloomy to be very enjoyable.

  4. It’s good to hear that you made Highlander joke. When I saw title I heard The Guardian from Highlander: The Source shout “Quickening!”.

  5. I’m amazed you didn’t make a Highlander 2: The Quickening joke.

    I think its a good episode, I like that Bashir is humbled by the fact he can’t save everyone. I can understand not wanting to revisit it though, it is a bummer of an episode.
