The most liked episode of DS9: Season 5
 
On to Season 5. Here are the results so far:

Season 1: "Duet"
Season 2: "The Wire"
Season 3: "The Die is Cast"
Season 4: "The Visitor"

Now it's time to vote for your favorite episode from season 5. After we're done with each season, we'll vote for the favorite overall.

The poll will be open for a week to give as many people a chance to vote as possible. Comment on your favorite, but don't forget to vote!

---------------

I'm sure I will be one of the few to choose this one...but my favorite episode from this season has to be "Children of Time." It was such a great moment for Kira to finally, REALLY find out that Odo is in love with her. But the way they leave it makes things really awkward, which of course is a good way for the writers to stretch out the actual "getting together" of these two. Yes, I love this couple. And I love this episode. But I love others in this season as well, which I'm sure will be reflected in your votes...so get voting (& commenting)! :)

By Inferno's Light. Even better than the prequel, and the character's interaction be it in escaping the prison or preparing for the incoming invasion is just awesome.

Another universally strong season. Only LHWIWS is a clear clunker. And after much thinking, I picked In The Cards: one of the best light-hearted episode of DS9, it brought together many themes being driven by the show at the time.

OMG Trials and Tribble-ations is just the best thing ever. I slept over with my friend and we watched it. She doesn't watch DS9, I had only shown her one episode before that and she's only seen a few episodes/ films of TOS and TNG before that. We were literally bouncing up and down on the bed screaming and laughing for the whole episode. It's just epic

Surprised that this season is not getting more votes maybe people can't pick between all the amazing episodes.

Hard to pick because the season was so strong, probably the best year of the show in my opinion.

I'm going to say The Darkness and the Light, primarily for Kira's tirade at Prin. That was one of the most raw and powerful moments of the series, I think.

Wow... what a great Star Trek season! So hard to chose...

I'll have to go with 'Trials and Tribble-ations".

Just perfection in every way.

ODO: Another glorious chapter of Klingon history. Tell me, do they still sing songs of the great tribble hunt?

...and what's not to like about this?

Season 5 had so many great episodes. Only two that have gotten votes that kind of baffle me are the Darkness and the Light, and Children of Time. ;)

I am surprised that dub hasn't opened the season six poll yet.

I really like S5, bar the horrendous LHWIWS. And love T&T, though is a bit fanwanky.

Sorry for the delay. Vacation, blue screen of death, yada yada yada...

Anyway, the winner with 6 out of 18 votes (33.33%) is:

Trials and Tribble-ations

There is a lot of technical info and interviews surrounding this episode due to its unique nature and the fact that it coincided with the 30th anniversary of Star Trek. I encourage you to check out all of the goodies on Memory Alpha if you haven't already:

The making-of is also out there on youtube. Here is part 1:
