Fan backlash to “Rejoined”

In a better world, Robert Wolfe muses, people would get more uptight about the violence in an episode like ‘The Way of the Warrior’ than the fact that two women shared a kiss in ‘Rejoined.’ ‘We got flak,’ he admits, ‘but we got more flak from killing Vedek Bareil’…I don’t think it should be a big deal. At the very least, I think it’s a thought-provoking episode. Any time television can make people think a little bit and question things a little bit, wonder a little bit where they’re coming from, that’s a good thing.
