Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Meridian” (part 3 of 3)

Back in from the break, Deral and Dax are now doing more science-y stuff at a console. And it would appear that our hastily-thrown-together couple is better at getting into each other’s pants than solving the planet’s problems, because they quickly realize that the issue is not gamma bursts at all. Basically, they’re back at square one.

Another kiss is averted as Sisko calls in, reporting that the probe they sent out has managed to get deeper into the sun’s corona. Chief O’Brien sends the new info down to Dax, and Deral succeeds in replacing the creepy vibe with being just plain annoying by nuzzling Dax the whole time. Seriously, it’s pretty damn hard to get behind a guy who manages to come off as both amazingly creepy and pathetically needy at the same time.

Deral continues to seem more interested in making out with Dax than saving his planet. Then Dax suggests they work a few more hours, and then go back to his place so they can count each other’s spots. Bow-chikka-wow-wow!

Ahem, sorry.
