guardian on the edge of ds9Edit
I've always wondered, am I the only one who assumed that the 'time travelling stone archway' in this episode, might be a guardian?
it certianly wouldn't be the first time DS9 paid homage to the origional series --BringerOfDoom 13:27, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
Is it really appropriate to note opinions as to whether or not an episode was "up to par"? —Anonymous
DS9 Companion: Molly's Books Edit
There are two childrens books (pg. 579) in the DS9 Companion "Hey! Hey! Little Ship!" ("Another Rio and Buzz adventure!") and "A Child's Garden of Lifeforms in our Galaxy." Did these actually make it into the episode? Probably not a head-on screenshot but were they in the back on a table in Molly's room? - AJ Halliwell 23:40, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
- I found Hey! Hey! Little Ship!, it's seen for only a few frames though. Haven't found the other book. --Jörg 19:31, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Citations needed Edit
The following need citations in order to be returned:
- The writers considered writing the episode so that the older Molly remained, and she would be seen to gradually re-integrate over the remaining course of the series. However, after considering how much time would be required to really carry the subplot off, it was decided to by the producers that the storyline had to be resolved during the episode. In the end, the writers said that they were slightly dissatisfied with the ending, feeling that it was too "Next Generation' in that everything ended up OK in the end. The original draft had the O'Briens follow through on leaving Molly in the past, and the denouement had them dealing with it.
- O'Brien was cleared of all charges in breaking Molly out in a tribunal between episodes. A mention of this was supposed to be in the following episode, but was dropped as unneeded.
- This story has some elements in common with the real-life tale of Victor of Aveyron and other feral children. For example, when the older Molly is found, she has large scars on her neck, as Victor did.
