5.0 out of 5 stars A good episode and one of the best ever..., 14 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Volume 5.3 [VHS] [1995] (VHS Tape)
The assignment is one of the regular "lets torture O'Brien" episodes whose "guest alien" becomes a important part of this excellent series in later episodes. Without at all revealing the plot suffice it say that Colm Meaney excels as always, whilst Rosalind Chao shows that she has been criminally underused throughout TNG and DS9.
"Trials...." was conceived as DS9's tribute to 30 years of Star Trek and does not let it down. It is a tour de force in technical terms with DS9 characters being seemlessly inserted into an original Trek episode. The Trouble with Tribbles was a love it or hate it episode of the original Trek, but if you know that episode at all (love it or hate it) you will appreciate the humour of Trials... Poking fun at the 60's uniforms..., hairstyles and makeup restrictions you quickly forget any reservations you might have had about this episode being a gimmick. I challenge anyone not to laugh as tribbles that orinally fell on Kirk are in fact "thrown" and Worf is forced to "explain" just why Klingons look different in the newer series (though he doesn't give much away.) The only slight criticism is that much of the effect would be lost if you had not seen the original series episode it is based around, but that is definitely worth viewing that too.
