It's amazing, isn't it, how the first television program to feature an inter-racial kiss (Kirk and Uhura) cannot - 30 years later - even consider the same?
Sisko can only fall in love with black women, Tuvok has a black spouse (T'Pel), to say nothing of the sexuality debate! For a nation born on revolution those Yanks sure are a conservative lot.
Now, given that there are so many races which can invade the minds of Starfleet officers, it's a tad surprising that there are any secrets at all; this episode is a little too familiar in its mind-vampire theme, it's now officially a cliché. It's just not as good as I had hoped.
And why do telepaths always have pointy ears?
