The most disliked episode of DS9 - Part Two
 
Okay Trek fans, "least disliked" has concluded, so now it's time for the opposite. The basic idea here is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your favorite or the one you deem the 'best.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you play again. Pretty simple. Enjoy! :bolian:

I'm saving The Circle because I love the focus on Bajoran politics. I like the whole trilogy (Homecoming/Circle/Siege) but since I can only pick one, I pick the middle.

I'm saving Necessary Evil - it and Duet are the first truly great episodes of DS9.

I'll save The Homecoming. I like it slightly better than The Siege, mostly because I like the interplay between Kira and O'Brien when they're on the rescue mission.

Quite a few winners here but I'll start with "Crossover", the first and best DS9 Mirror Universe story. (Yes, I chose "Whispers" a moment ago but someone beat me to the punch. Curse you, PS3 browser.)

Well, I'm on a roll, so I'll complete the trilogy and save The Siege.

I'll save Tribunal - a little contrived plotwise, but it has some excellent universe building and great acting from Meaney.

Next up is "Cardassians" -- stellar culture-building and a solid Bashir/Garak adventure with a heart.

I'll have to save the finalé, it did a decent job at setting up the Dominion threat.

The Collaborator goes next. It gave us a great, nuanced villain in Wynn and her election really sets the stage for great later episodes.

"The Maquis" was partly used as setup for the upcoming Voyager but I don't think I'm alone in stating that they were ultimately put to far better usage in DS9. I'll save "Part I" for now.
