[DS9] The Alternate

[DS9] Season 2, Episode 12 (Netflix: S2 E12): The Alternate

The Alternate

Rating: 2
This episode is mainly boring.  There are also a few scenes that I think taint the Odo character. There is some back-story added to Odo’s character that mainly consists of meeting a character and reiterated things we already knew.

The scientist tries to scare Odo into believing that no one will understand why Odo did it. He says they'll put him into a zoo. Odo get's really scared. I guess this is supposed to show some real depth to his character, but come on. Does he really think Sisko's going to put him in a zoo?
