Yet Another Rewatch Thread...

Ok...I decided to re watch my fave Star Trek, Deep Space Nine. There are a few episodes I have not seen, and a few episodes I really can't remember. However, I figured a Rewatch thread might be fun, and this thread will have spoilers, as I may reference episodes I remember that might have some reference to the current episode.

It was the dawn of the third age of Star Trek, little did we know that this might be high point of Space Opera on TV, and paramount launched one of the most delightful blocks of storytelling ...Deep Space Nine....

"Emissary"

This opening episode still holds up after almost 20 years of time (Yikes, I am OLD)...

The opening sequence still has some punch, as you see the Saratoga get steamrolled by the Borg. War is hell...

First off, while not perfect, it is nice to see the conflict between Sisko and Picard. I mean, the venom is almost tasty. The personal conflict (while still striving for the standards of starfleet) is still some of the best trek, and you see this in that opening bark...

Poor Nana Visitor, Stuck with a character that comes off as a well, to be nicely, a Witch (i hate the B version of the word), you forget how rough she is at the start. I always happened to like her, but she is unlikable in this episode.

The actress who plays Jennifer is a underrated beauty, and does well enough for her bit part. And it always surprises me what they did with Kai Opaka<sp> as she was a good character.

Our Good doctor bashir was also fun to see, I forgot how young he was, so green. However he does take over when the time for him to treat injuries.

8.5 out of 10

The next episode I remember had neo-IRA terrorist and our fave Klingon sisters...
