Last Rewatch: 2019/2/25 - 2020/09/14  - Current Rewatch: 2023/03/27 - 


Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first aired on January 3rd, 1993 and the last episode, What We Leave Behind, aired on June 2nd, 1999. As you well know, DS9 was the 3rd live-action Star Trek show, which started airing during season 6 of The Next Generation. During DS9’s 3rd season, in January 1995, Star Trek: Voyager began airing. So DS9 never got to shine on its own, always in the shadow of more popular shows at that time! You probably know by now that this is not my opinion because DS9 is by far my favorite Trek show. This is mainly due to a fantastic  cast, a fantastic recurring cast and of course an overarching story which began cautiously in the second season.

 

For the first time we got a black commander, later on he became a captain, and I have to say, Ben Sisko has always been my favorite captain. His relationship with his son Jake was one of the reasons Ben Sisko became my favorite captain, really enjoyed that part. DS9 is a show about Family, ideals, faith and also war! Commander Sisko is the new commander of Deep Space Nine, a Cardassian station in orbit of the planet Bajor. he is a single father, his son Jake joins him to live on that Cardassian station which at that point is in ruins. Then a  stable wormhole discovered by the Deep Space Nine crew which is known to the Bajoran people as the Celestial Temple of their Prophets.

 

Till this day DS9 remains my favorite TV show, together with Babylon 5, I could never really choose one, when I watch Babylon 5 I think this one nudges to the first spot but when I rewatch DS9 I believe that this one is my most favorite TV show. So last few years I say they both are, I just cannot choose. Back in the day there was a lot of hostility between Babylon 5 and Deep Space Nine fans, something I never ever understood! I loved then both and still do. These shows have so much rewatch value, each time I watch either one, I really cannot wait for the next episode to watch. I was just happy that it was not just Babylon 5 or Star Trek: Deep Space Nine but we got to get both of them. There are similarities but this mostly in the naming, for the rest there isn’t much which is the same as the other one. I still have the European clunky sets, those big blue ones. For a long time I was hoping I could replace these with Blu-ray’s but unfortunately I no longer think this is going to happen! I’d love to be wrong though!

 

Of course, DS9 is a different set-up that TNG or Voyager for obvious reasons, which is, I believe, the reason, both shows are more popular than DS9. But starting with season 3, the DS9 crew also got a ship, a bit smaller but as feisty as hell, which made it more interesting to travel to other planets, through the wormhole. It is the Defiant, because to go and explore on a runabout it not always handy since it can be a dangerous place out there in space, you need a bit of fire power, and with a runabout you can only try to escape.

 

On this page you can find a few DS9 blogs, which I think will make clear my love for this show. No matter how many times I watched this, I never get bored with it, this show (and B5 also), has become a part of me for always.
