This is a very ambitious project, I look forward to seeing how it progresses.
My only issue is that I've only seen the first four episodes of B5 before I bailed on it (and yes, I know it got better in the second season) so I'll probably have to skip reading those reviews in case I decide to watch it in the future.
Hehe. Maybe now's a good time to start?
Well, there really isn't much more to comment on about the pilot that hasn't been psychoanalyzed to death in this forum, now is there.
TNG was in the middle of winter re-runs at this point, though depending on the network it was being syndicated on, I don't think they would have even aired a re-run, instead leaving its hour-slot to air the full two hours of DS9's premiere. Of course, having Stewart and the Enterprise-D
in the episode undoubtedly helped ease the audience into the new show. It's actually a bit odd seeing Picard in the role of "Exposition Admiral" here, especially with his experience in Chain Of Command
relatively fresh in the mind.
It was the only show on, so DS9 wins the first Weekly Versus by default.
Next: Week 2
DS9 - Past Prologue
