Ah, a Deep Space Nine reference - all is right in the world.

Well, except for all the rioting.

I vote that we rename the NSA as the Obsidian Order.

It would lend credence to the idea that Obama is protected by shape shifters.

it's been difficult to keep the civilans in line since the fall of the order.

Fine, fine, we won't build a mall!

why is this so hard to resolve?

Livingroom: good villain


Maybe it was because DS9 went 7 seasons, but his story seemed a bit drawn out.

It is amazing that this is all about urban development.  I say use real live bullets.  No one and I mean no one gets between me and my commercial venues.

what's the deal with all these riots? have they not removed the kebab vendors yet?

My only problem with Dukat was that he reached the point where it should have gone: See Dukat - kill Dukat. They always tried to twist the situation into a reason to keep him alive. But honestly he reached the point where "kill the bastard and deal with the fallout" would have been preferable.

And larger plot be damned Worf should have been the one to put a crunchy and blood-soaked end to him.

The same rhetoric everywhere: We like good protesters, just not those bad protesters. Unlike in the US, though, the Turkish people seem to have realized that doing things to be liked by the people you're protesting against is not exactly productive nor likely to help your actions succeed.

They're really much closer to the Tal Shiar. The Federation never acknowledged that Section 31 even existed.

most of the federation didn't even know it existed, including the president most of the time i think.

Well, there was that episode where he was being transported to a Federation prison (after he'd gone crazy, having seen his daughter get shot), during which he escaped after he and Cisco crashed on some planet.  After that, he wasn't seen by any of the heroes until he faced Cisco in the fire caves (okay, Kai Winn saw him, but I don't know if she could have been considered a hero at that point).

/Wait, I forgot about that episode where he was running a cult on Terok Nor; I'm pretty sure Kira tried to kill him during that one.

it was Empok Nor, (Terok Nor is Deep Space Nine) and ya she had him dead to rights with a phaser on him and let him talk, and live. . . again. If I recall correctly Sisko wasn't fully functional for most of his episode with him.

And I repeat, it should have been Worf that got him, and Worf should be walking around with a necklace made of Dukat's neck bones, that he personally removed.

Nope, can't tell I loved Jhadzia, nope not at all.

I stand corrected on the names.

I can understand why you'd want Worf to be the one to kill him, but Dukat was the sort of epic villain that had to go in an epic way. Plus, the whole affair with Kai Winn arc was kinda cool (in a slightly creepy way), so I'm glad he lasted 'til the end.

i wonder if people need to sign some sort of release form before using holodecks. everything always turned out for the best in the enterprise/voyager/ds9. But you gotta assume that with thousands, maybe millions of holodecks all across the fedeeration... each year, a bunch of people must die due to safety protocols failure or some other issue. and they let children go into these death traps too! I wonder if there's groups of parents or citizens advocating for safer holodecks or for these killing machines to be banned.

Maybe not the best villain, but certainly a good one. Most of the "good" ones actually believe what they do is for a greater good....

/ although, some of the more awesome ones don't give a shiat about that ( Darkseid, Randall Flagg, Emperor Palpatine, etc.)

MAMH - Mothers Against Malfunctioning Holodecks

Since Quarks were established to be robo-brothels, I'd expect in the 24th century holosuites have their own Fark tag.

I'd expect a lot of those people would walk into a holodeck... and spend the rest of their lives wondering if they ever made it out again
