I think the plan seems fine, although it might be interesting to see which fields each of the above mentioned indexes refer to and the definition of those fields. When you talk about VARCHARs and BLOBs, I assume you mean that you put them in the fields that you SELECT, not in the JOIN clause itself? Is it slow if you join all tables, but don't select from anywhere except S?
