  • Deep Space Nine is a great show.

    I have all 7 seasons of DS9 on DVD. It is the best of the Trek shows IMO. It has better writing, stronger arcs, more defined character's and with the Dominion War, it had better action. Don't get me wrong, I like the other Trek shows, but DS9 is the best.

    Any other fans of DS9 out there?

      Thanks, yeah not everyone is into Trek. I surf the Trek boards all the time(i am right now) and there isn't alot of Bronco fans on their boards either. I guess im pretty unique in that regard!!

        Didn't like the last season that much, the whole Worf affair & the Sisco & the profits ending.

            I thought the last season was great as well, you can get lost if you don't watch every episode because of the giant 10 episode arc at the end. With all the storylines that they had going, I think they tied it up nicely at the end. The first time I saw DS9 on tv, I missed a couple of episodes here and there so I missed out on some important stuff, but now I have the whole show on DVD and that really helped fill in the gaps. The first couple of seasons are kinda weak but it really gains momentum from 3rd season on and it just kept getting better and better in my opinion.

              The best shows are action packed. In the first seasons from what I remember, the writers and actors were trying to find a niche.

                I liked the fact that it started out darker than the other trek stuff and the launch of the dominion war was great. Most of the Cardassian plots lines were good, but the ferengi stuff.. not so much.

                  The last war scene was the best ever though. With virtual walls of ships facing each other. Great!

                    Yeah, and they were still in the shadow of TNG. I don't think they really figured out how to write the show untill season 3. Although "Duet"(a first season episode) is probably one of the very best episodes of television of all time, the rest of the first season is unfocused and derivitive of TNG. They even had a couple TNG'rs make guest appearences to help send them off own their own.

                          Yeah, there's is a couple of Ferengi episodes I could do without (Profit and Lace) but there was also a couple good ones (House of Quark, Little Green Men, It's only a Paper Moon).

                              From Jammer's Reviews

                              Duet -- Airdate: 6/14/1993. Teleplay by Peter Allan Fields. Story by Lisa Rich & Jeanne Carrigan-Fauci. Directed by James L. Conway.

                              "Duet" is quintessential DS9. It's an issue-oriented episode that is brilliantly characterized, with some absolutely riveting performances. The plot centers around a Cardassian named Marritza (Harris Yulin) who "happens" upon the station as a passenger on a passing ship. Kira promptly arrests him for being a war criminal and throws him in a cell. You see, he has a medical condition that he could only have acquired at a Bajoran labor camp named Gallitep. This labor camp was also the site of horrific Bajoran treatment at the hands of Cardassian atrocities. As far as Kira and the Bajorans are concerned, any Cardassian at Gallitep is guilty. But a mystery arises concerning the Cardassian's identity--with a number of clues that don't add up--and Kira begins a search for the truth. The resulting dialog between Kira and the Cardassian pulls no punches in either content or delivery. Evidence indicates that Marritza is really Gul Darheel, the man who actually ran Gallitep and made it his mission to terrorize "Bajoran scum." Suddenly Kira finds herself face to face with one of the most hated Cardassians Bajor has ever known. Nana Visitor delivers a powerhouse, emotional performance. Even better is Harris Yulin's turn as Darheel, whose absolute tour de force display of acting brings the raving, menacing, downright evil Cardassian frighteningly to life, with such lines as "What you call genocide, I call a day's work." Odo's subsequent investigation of the Cardassian's identity brings Dukat into the plot with a great deal of sensibility. It turns out that Darheel is really Marritza posing as the Cardassian criminal (who has been dead for years), trying to martyr himself so the Cardassian government will be forced to acknowledge its guilt for the Occupation--a moving display of self-sacrifice for the sake of progress on all ends. "Duet" is all substance, completely engrossing in its conveyance, and it also features a tragic ending. It's one of the best moments in the entire series' run.
