But the good news is that she's diggin' some DS9! I may go with "Looking for Par'Mach..." next. Or maybe "Our Man Bashir" after we watch Skyfall.
Try the Visitor, that episode will emotionally pull on anyone's heartstrings.

Children of Time, His Way and Duet might also work!

Keep trying man! You may yet make a DS9er of your fiancée!

Re: A great way to spend 55 minutes

It's working!!

We've been watching DS9 like crazy lately and she's been loving it. I've been reading the first Typhon Pact book and that gave me the idea to show her "Statistical Probabilities" and "Chrysalis"- she loved those two. And then that same night she wanted to watch the one were Worf and Jadzia get married, but I urged her to watch the one where they first hook up... so we watched "Looking for Par'Mach..." and "You Are Cordially Invited..." She also loved both of those. After watching those four episodes she actually said, "Ya know, I might like DS9 better than Next Gen. It seems like the characters have better stories." !!!! That's huge! Next Gen has always been the *one* Star Trek show she likes!

She actually requested to watch DS9 last night. She wanted to go back and start watching the earlier episodes so I wouldn't have to continually pause the episode and explain what's going on... so last night we watched "Past Prologue", "Babel" and "Captive Pursuit." (I skipped "A Man Alone" because I loath it) I was nervous that she wouldn't like the season one episodes, but she enjoyed them.

I'm going to stop urging her to watch DS9 and see if she asks to watch more on her own. I'm having a blast!

"The Visitor" would be a bad call at this time, unfortunately. She lost her dad to cancer a few months ago. I fear that episode might pull on the heartstrings a bit too hard right now.

I agree with your assessment. My dad died 42 years ago and I have problems with "The Visitor". My situation was similar to Jake's (mother already dead), and the episode reminds me that I didn't have the benefit of Dad's advice when becoming an adult.

I find a lot of S1's actually rather decent, so long as you enjoyed watching these characters in the latter seasons. Makes you appreciate those early developments far more, after having an idea of where they'll end up later. (Like Jadzia ending up DEAD despite the last line of Dax!)

One of my favorite episodes that mixes the funny with the serious is "Treachery, Faith and the Great River." Might that be a good next stop on your quest?

Good job, btw.
