I missed Duet on DS9's initial run, a very good episode.

Re: Was there one episode of DS9 that hooked you?

Was off-and-on for most of the first four season, then somewhere in the middle of Season Five, I started to follow the show more steadily. I can't remember any particular episode that properly 'hooked' me in, just that I felt the show had gotten really good, and was worth watching (even if it was through re-runs most of the time).

Then Call To Arms aired. Niner for life after that.

It took you 5 seasons to become a Niner?! Philistine!

I blame high-school shenanigans.

Hardly coincidentally, my Niner-dom began post-graduation, during my first Uni year.

Past Prologue for me. Garak turned me into a Niner on the second episode.

Emmissary the flashback to the borg battle at Wolf 359 and seeing what happened with Ben sisko's story and the loss of his wife Jennifer and how it affected him.All. the other characters Like Kira,odo and Dax, Bashir, o'Brienwas what I liked about this series and watch it for all seven seasons.Also characters like Garak, Quark, Rom and Nog, Worf and many other characters I liked and added alot of depth to this series.That confrontation scene Sisko has with Picard about wolf 359 is really powerful moment and shows what a good actor Avery Brooks is.

Call to Arms.

Rented out the VHS purely based on the cover and watched "In the Cards" and "Call to Arms", after that I was getting out the tapes as soon as they became available.

Prior to that I'd seen Emissary and The Way of the Warrior but neither got me into the show, though WotW came close.

I think it was either The Jem'Hadar, or might have been something in season 3. Perhaps even The Adversary.

The Way of the Warrior, I'd been watching ds9 on and off on bbc2, which was about a season behind, then I decided to buy WotW on VHS when it came out, and I was hooked. Bought every episode on VHS when it came out after that.

I liked the show during seasons 1-3... but the obsession began with Way of the Warrior.
