Where are you in the series? I think she's a bit of a hothead early in the series but she matures and grows into her role as XO over the course of the series.
As a kid, I watched reruns of Star Trek: TOS and thought it was pretty fun, though I didn't get the headier Sci-Fi concepts until a rewatch marathon when I was older.I've been watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine every night on a cable TV station lately. Not my first time but the first in several years.
I'm reminded of two things I've always thought about this show.
1) How great it is, almost as good as the best of The Next Generation
2) How much it could have been even better and far surpassed TNG if it weren't for officer Keera or however it's spelled. Man I can't stand her. Her character annoys me to no end every time she's on screen. Both her characters writing and the actor. The character is annoying, illogical, self righteous, and unlikeably arrogant, ignorant, and opinionated in the wrong ways. And the actors portrayal is just as obnoxious as all that the character is would call for. She's just always rubbed me the wrong way and I'm immediately annoyed whenever she talks. It's a shame she could have been much more likeable with just some small tweaks to her character traits.
The only blemish on an otherwise amazing show.
My brother has said he always struggled to get into ds9 and said something about the first couple seasons. I personally prefer the earlier seasons rather than the later couple of seasons, but I do sympathise. There is a lot of intermeshing story elements throughout later seasons whereas the earlier seasons are more episodic. it really give the grounding for the characters though. I mean you need to see the beginning of Bashir's relationship with Garak, to really appreciate the later stories about them. that's just one example.I know DS9 is really respected among adults and fans of slower, talkier Sci-Fi, shows like Dr. Who and Babylon 5. I've always thought that some day I should try to really give it another shot, but I think I'll always see those first couple of seasons as floundering in the wake of massive changes from producers.
This is a problem with TNG too. It really hit its stride in Season 3, but a lot of important character moments happen in the first two seasons that make the later ones stronger. And both Q and the Borg are introduced all the way back in Season 1.
