DS9 Season 1, Episode 17 (Netflix: S1 E16): The Forsaken
Lwaxana Troi makes her first DS9 appearance and shows a side of herself that we don’t normally see. If this interests you then maybe you’ll like this episode. Otherwise it isn’t too much fun to watch.
Bashir is put in charge of some ambassadors because the writers want us to give Bashir another shot
Among the ambassadors is a Bolian and a Vulcan. Thats cool
And one of them is Lwaxana. Pink hair. Here we go
File under: Majel Barrett (Chapel/Lwaxana)
Lwaxana reminds us that Betazoids can’t read Ferengis.
Odo and Lwaxana are trapped in the turbo elevator. Yup, this is the plot. This is happening
The other plot is about a computer “stray puppy” probe or something. It’s messing everything up
The other other plot is about Bashir pleasing the ambassadors. The A-plot, B-plot, and C-plot are all uninteresting
The best thing about this episode is we learn more about Odo, but it’s all stuff we could pick up on easy enough later if this episode is skipped
Then Odo melts…
…The crew comes up with more puppy analogies…
…And Bashir learns someone’s first name. All is well
