Re: S2E12 - The Alternate

I included this episode because it introduces Dr. Mora and reveals some early history to Odo. The story is a bit wonky, as mentioned above, and it really is more about the father-son relationship of Odo and Mora. It's a science mystery that wraps up in just the right amount of time. But really, I th...

Re: S2E8 - Necessary Evil

I picked this episode because we get to see how Odo and Kira met, and how Odo came to be the Constable. This episode was a Noir mystery a theme that will continue with Odo has the series goes on. I love that we find out that Kira did kill the collaborator, once again showing just how tough Kira was ...

Re: S2E3 - The Siege

I selected this episode as the conclusion of the three-arc opening of season 2. This episode is the culmination of all the plot threads. We have Kira and Dax trying to get word to the council, while Sisko, Odo, O'Brien, and Bashir hold the station from Bajorian forces. As the arc concludes, Li is ki...

Re: S2E2 - The Circle

This episode was selected for some of the first serial story-telling in DS9. This episode builds on the last one, raising the stakes with Li now taking Kira's place as First Officer on DS9. While Kira returns to Bajor, she spends time with Vedek Bareil and has her first orb experience. The contents ...

Re: S2E1 - The Homecoming

I selected this episode because this is DS9s foray into Serialized storytelling. This episode kicks off the 3-episode arc. Overall, I think that this episode does a good job of setting up the situation and introducing Li, the war hero. I really like that Li is not the hero that everyone thinks he is...

S1E19 - In The Hands of the Prophets

I selected this episode because it introduces two important characters Vedek Winn and Vedek Barell. This episode centers around the conflict that Vedek Winn has with Keiko's teachings at the school on the station. Vedek Winn is a orthodox Bajorian and believes that Keiko's science-based teaching is ...

S1E18 - Duet

I selected this episode for personal reasons. This is the episode that made me fall in love with this series. This episode is a deep and dark drama. It could not be more opposite than TNG. It is a 2-character play between Kira and Marritza (played by Harris Yulin). This episode is a series of twists...

S1E16 - The Foresaken

I included this episode in our viewing because of the appearance of Lwaxana Troi. This is another episode, where TNG is helping to get DS9 off and rolling. We get a cameo by another great secondary TNG character. This episode has a personal story with Odo and Lwaxana, Julian handling diplomats, and ...
