S1E10 - The Nagus

I picked this episode because it introduces the Grand Nagus and does some world-building on Ferengi culture. The main storyline is a Quark story. We start by meeting the Nagus, who's thirst for physical pleasures is only second for his thirst for Latnium. The story starts to deepen the Ferengi cultu...

Re: S1E2 - A Man Alone

I selected this episode because it does a better introduction of Nog. Nog is going to be a really important DS9 minor character and has one of the best story arcs. So I wanted to make sure you get to see him from the start. This episode does a bunch to show that DS9 is not the Enterprise. I think th...

S1E3 - Past Prologue

I picked this episode for two reasons... GARAK! I love this character so much, and I suspect many of you will as well, as the series goes on. Garak's introduction is so good. This show was made at a time where there was not going to be a gay relationship on the show, but Garak's coming onto Bashir i...

S1E1 - Emissary (Parts 1 & 2)

This is the pilot of the series, and of course, it had to be watched. As pilots, go this one is pretty well done. This series has the benefit of 5 seasons of TNG. The world is better established, the effects budgets were better, the effects technology was better. As a story, this story packs a lot i...
