pip pip pip pip

A new crew is assigned to a former Cardassian space station: Deep Space Nine. It is a joint Federation/Bajoran force, with Commander Sisko in charge, but his life is dramatically changed when he is declared the Emissary to the Prophets by a Bajoran priest.

Director: David Carson

Jack's Review
A nice start to the series. The faceoff with Picard really adds to things too. Seeing Sisko being belligerent towards Picard at first and then learning to move past his misguided anger shows what kind of commander he will become.

I recall that I disliked watching DS9 when it originally aired because of the political storylines but this one is good. It shows off the acting skills of the cast very well too.

This one feels like the Hirogen from Voyager with a different twist. The alien even looks like the Hirogen too. I am glad that Voyager added much more depth to the hunter and hunted species.

Oh dear god...yeah this one is terrible. The aliens sound like the Pakleds at times and Q the rest of the time. Just plain awful. This one reminds me of the clown episode of Voyager (The Thaw) only it is much worse.

I have to admit, I love the Ferengi species. Hilarious creatures - and Quark is a blast. This one was well done. Loved the secret Jake and Nog were keeping. Lots of feels.

Very strange episode. The initial premise turns into something a tad odd and the lack of explanation of the lifeforms is a lost opportunity. Maybe they will come back?

For a season closer this one feels like a normal episode. Nice mystery but not well explained. Still, great acting and nice insight into the Bajoran faith.
