While hosting her first Trill mentee, Dax discovers a tiny, expanding proto-universe that threatens to destroy the Alpha Quadrant. We've already had a few Dax episodes. Unfortunately, she hasn't impressed us so far, and "Playing God" doesn't do much to fix that. As an attempt to examine the Trill, the episode fails. As an attempt to delve into ethical science fiction, it falls apart. And as a chance to get Jake Sisko laid... well, let's check in on that next season. Wes pilots this episode solo (don't worry, he's a level 5 pilot) and tries to figure out how this fits into the DS9 canon. Let's discuss Trill ambiguity, stepping on ants, and not fixing a problem!
