Ira Steven Behr, the eventual showrunner for DS9, had something to say about this episode that shines a bit of light on the process of creating longform serialized fiction. “It was a third season show we had the nerve to do in the first season,” he said in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion. What he’s saying here is that before you do an episode in which you mess with your characters’ personalities, you need to have done the grunt work of establishing those personalities, something that generally takes a couple seasons. For a network ensemble show, this is usually done by the third season. Think of when other genre shows showed alternate versions of characters or played with the personalities at their core: Buffy did “The Wish” in the third season, Supernatural had “It’s a Terrible Life” in the fourth, and Deadwood did “Merry Christmas, You Hooplehead C--ksuckers” in the third. Okay, I made one of those up. Not to mix a metaphor or anything, but before you go messing around in the kitchen, it’s a good idea to put on some pants first.
