Greatest series of all time
Before DeepSpace 9 I could say that I was not much of an ST fan. But I rented our the first movie "Emmisary" once just to take a look at what some had been saying bout it. From here on I was hooked, this was the most rich and diverse universe I've seen in a long time. None of these one shot location scenes being whole planets. None of these random encounters every episode with a brand new planet and new race and having no consequence on other episodes to follow. No, DS9 was far more detailed, you have politics, religion , love, drama ... everything. It makes the show seem so real. Then coupled with some of the most uniqu , interesting characters you just can't but help fall in love with this show.

A plot with such a well crafted and beautiful linear path always leaving you wanting more and wanting to know how it will all turn out. With the occasional intensly humourous episodes to the tears of a loss of major character. Deep Space 9 has it all and more.

Words alone can not describe how entralling and captivating this show is, you really have to see it for yourself. Deep Space 9 has something about it that no other show has or can come close to achieving.

Nothing compares.

Trivia

There was a level of friction between fans of Babylon 5 (1994) and this show. Babylon 5 fans felt that writers for this show had stolen many aspects of Babylon 5's premise (occurring recently after a war or occupation, episodes taking place on a space station not located in Earth territory, the cast discovering an ancient malevolent race that would become a major threat, the overall story of the show being less reliant on story-of-the-week episodes, and more of an overarching story arc, et cetera), asserting that Paramount Pictures had rejected J. Michael Straczynski's proposal of Babylon 5 to them in the late 1980s, but used certain details of the pitch by inserting them into the story and premise of this show. There was a concerted effort to bury the hatchet, especially by having Majel Barrett (widow of Gene Roddenberry) appear on Babylon 5 as an alien prophetess who spoke on behalf of her recently deceased husband (a nod to Roddenberry, who had passed away a few years before her appearance).


Quotes

Chief O'Brien: Four weeks! Are you telling me I've been hanging around a Changeling for over a month?
Doctor Bashir: And you never suspected it wasn't me?


Goofs

During the opening title sequence, the wormhole is shown at inconsistent angles to how it looks as the crew observe it from the station's windows. In the title sequence, the wormhole is angled upward at approximately a 40° angle. When the crew observes it from the station, it's pointed down at about a 260° angle. However, it must be remembered not only is there no "up" or "down" in space, but also that the DS9 station is mobile. It is transportable via thrusters and so can be repositioned at any angle around the wormhole by the crew for whatever purpose they see fit.


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.
