Wow, I didn't know that! Do you know which episodes, what was cut - and why?
To The Death - The neck snapping shot was replaced by a reaction shot of Worf, and the snapping sound was removed.
Sons And Daughters - About half a minute was cut from the funal scene, when Worf, Martok and Alexander mixed their blood together and drank it. It was considered too dangerous because of the whole AIDS thing.
By the way, both cuts were made due to British regulations and were then adopted for the rest of Europe. Probably because it would have been too expansive to produce two different versions for the European market.
Thirty seconds from Sons And Daughters - that's harsh! Thanks for the info, I am now even more gratified I elected to import all my DVD Trek from the US! Of course, these are things it's worth keeping an eye on if DS9 eventually hits BD. In all probability, the unedited cuts would be used in all territories - but a new submission to the BBFC would be required in the UK, and you just never know.
