Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Post any memories you have of watching this series or any behind the scenes drama you might have heard. I loved this show as a teen. It was a campier than The Next Generation, which I also loved. The characters had more fleshed out story lines but the premise stayed true to Star Trek's original vision of exploration.

Very dark. Ron Moore needs a cuddle. Dax and Worf are hot.

This is my most favorite of the Trek shows but I’d argue that it was a complete 180 from Roddenberry’s vision.

He rarely dealt with religion, and it was a central premise to DS9. In later seasons it was fairly dark compared to other Trek shows.

Characters died, lost limbs, dealt with PSTD. After season 3, there really wasn’t much exploration. It was a fight for their lives.

I’d argue that B5 did it as well or better, but this was an entirely different kind of show than all the others.

R2 B5 had Tracey Scoggins.

It took me three tries to actually watch this series all the way through and once I got through the first season and a half, i really enjoyed it. i would agree that it was more fleshed out than some of the other shows.

Always thought Kira Nerys came off as something of a bitch.

Louise Fletcher was cool.

R6 Nurse Ratched in space. Winn Adami was a great character up until the 7th season and the show imploded. The Bajorans characters had such nuance.

R7 the way they used the religion to manipulate people was very...true to history of religions on Earth.

Not as iconic as TOS, and its best episodes didn’t quite reach the heights of TNG’s best, but DS9 is the best Trek series when all is said and done. The depth and texture that they developed in (and between) so many different characters was (and remains) impressive. I’m not sure any other show (of any genre) was as good at building and exploring friendships and relationships as DS9.

I highly recommend the “What We Left Behind” doc that was released a couple of years ago.

The Starfleet people were a bore. The exceptional characters were a Ferengi and Cardassian spy.

I wasn't originally a fan, being very much a TNG fan and feeling like I was being left with a crappy substitute.

That said, Sisko's explanation of human existence to the Prophets in "Emissary" was amazing writing and acting, in my view.

I ended up being a huge Odo/Quark/Garak fan, less so with the others.

Even so, "Duet" was IMHO some of the best Trek ever.
