The most liked episode of DS9: Season 3

We're continuing to vote for our favorites. Here are the results so far:

Season 1: "Duet"
Season 2: "The Wire"

Now it's time to vote for your favorite episode from season 3. After we're done with each season, we'll vote for the favorite overall.

The poll will be open for a week to give as many people a chance to vote as possible. Comment on your favorite, but don't forget to vote!

---------------

This is getting tough, as it should. The series gets better and better for me as it goes. But if I have to choose one, I must go with "Second Skin." Seeing Kira as a Cardassian was one of the most shocking things to witness. And it was so memorable. Her acting in this episode was awesome. I felt her pain as the seeds of doubt grew within her (and within me as a viewer) as to her true race. I only wish they left the ending ambiguous as originally intended...is Kira really a Bajoran or Cardassian? Of course, she would choose Bajoran and live as Bajoran, but it would have been interesting to just leave the question of her real identity open. Of course, Garak is also in this episode and he has some great lines as usual! Anyway, I so love this episode. And it was wonderful on my rewatch as well, because my wife who was watching for the first time gasped out loud when she saw Kira as a Cardassian, which was great fun for me to witness! But like I said, this season is full of good ones, and I'm excited to see what you all choose as your favorites.

One of the most re-watched episodes for me is The Adversary. So I decided to name it the best of season.

I went with Improbable Cause but really both episodes of the 2-parter are perfect.

This was so hard for me, but I had to vote for Second Skin. It was a great story.

My favorite is Civil Defense. It was a great idea for a bottle show. You got Dukat coming in all smug and superior only to get knocked down. It has Dukat and Garak going off on each other, which is always fun.

Of all the Disaster type episodes in Trek, Civil Defense is the most fun, especially Garak calling out Dukat as he hit on Kira.

Yup, it is DS9's "Disaster" though much better. Add in Garak and Dukat, and subtract whiny children.

Re: The most liked episode of DS9: Season 3

I went with 'Civil Defense' as well. It really addressed something which was in the shows bible but rarely featured. Star Fleet had taken control of an ALIEN space station and was trying to use unfamiliar equipment at times. With control freaks like the Cardassians it is not surprising to have hidden control programs.
The Phaser unit appearing in replicators is brilliant! Check for concealed weapons all you want, the computer will create and fire them when it wants to. Having Dukat strolling through the beams was funny as hell and the look on his face when the program decided he was also part of the problem and removed his authority was priceless.

The only downer was having the massive destruction overload just turn into a light show at the end. After all that buildup they should have had some significant damage at least (to be spotlessly repaired before the next show of course)

Re: The most liked episode of DS9: Season 3

I love Second Skin. Kira as a Cardassian was possibly the best plot idea ever on DS9. This is a top five episode for me. Maybe top one.

"Improbable Cause" is my favorite. The scene where Odo confronts Garak in his office is great- "You blew up your own shop, Garak!"

Re: The most liked episode of DS9: Season 3

Such a strong season, it would be easier for me to vote the ones I don't like. Have never rewatched Past Tense two-parter, Equilibrium, Meridian and The Abandoned. Find them unwatchable. If I had to name guilty pleasures of season, would be Civil Defence, Fascination and Explorers. Last two especially feel they're about characters.
