Can I call myself a Niner if I haven't quite seen the entire show yet?
It's a long story. Trek fan from way back in the days of TOS syndicated reruns, followed the movies and TNG. DS9's "Emissary" blew my mind, and I followed Nine through the first four seasons during its orignial broadcast. After that, the local station started playing games with the schedule every few weeks and I lost track of the show. I caught occasional episodes through the next three years, and the reruns were scheduled at awkward times of the day or night. In short, there's significant episodes and events I just haven't seen yet. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole show eventually, even if I have to rent them like a dilettante.
