| Deep Space Nine (out of Ten).
Been watching the franchise series' in reverse order from a modern day standpoint comparison. Initially felt some of the characters in DS9 were a little irritating as some others have thought, but as it progressed through the series' I was found the character development to reverse my initial thoughts thankfully. Quark as a character is an example of this.

As like many others in the Star Trek, some of the storylines are derivative or overlapping of series. (no show is perfect) This is to be expected from a large number of episodes per season. Luckily there was a continuing narratives throughout to keep one engaged. The inclusion of the USS Defiant starship added another layer of interest, familiarity and diversity to plotlines.

On the whole, the premise of the series being based on a space station adds much-needed interest to an otherwise Starship-based franchises. The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise all share this narrative to varying degrees of success.

Onto re-watching The Next Generation after this. "Shut up, Wesley!"

Did You Know?


Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations (1996), a time travel story, was written to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Star Trek franchise. The DS9 crew travels back to 2268 at the time of Star Trek (1966) episode 2.15, Star Trek: The Original Series: The Trouble with Tribbles (1967), to prevent Arne Darvin from assassinating Captain Kirk and changing the timeline. Due to the ages of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the other original cast members, it was decided to have this show's cast interact with the original footage of the Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) episode. Bluescreen and computer technology were used that had recently been employed for Forrest Gump (1994), another Paramount property.


Quark: Its been coming for a long time. I've fought against it. I really have! But living with those people, day in and day out... being exposed to their ethics... their morality... it's like I've been brainwashed!


The number of Dax hosts Jadzia and Ezri state there have been, fluctuates throughout the series and is usually inaccurate. After Verad became another host in a season 2 episode, and Joran was acknowledged to be a previously-missing host in a season 3 episode, there are 10 hosts in all: Ezri is the tenth, and after Joran and Verad are counted Jadzia is the ninth. Yet Ezri in her only season (7) states she is the eighth, and Jadzia after season 3 usually states SHE is the eighth (counting Joran but forgetting about Verad), though before Joran was discovered (season 3) but after Verad (season 2), Jadzia still says she is the eighth (she counts Verad).

Crazy Credits

The opening credits for "Emissary" lacked the wormhole opening that all future episodes featured. Starting with Season 4, the opening credits included additional spacecraft and activity around the station, including the Defiant flying into the wormhole.

Alternate Versions

Several episodes were originally shown as 2-hour movies. They were later edited into two-part 60 minute episodes for later airings.
