Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

I'll vote first for the season 1 finale. It's a good episode but I'm not sure it belongs on any list of the best episodes of the series. For me it's the weakest here.

I'm voting for the same episode and for the same reasons. This list is awesome all-round though, man DS9 was an awesome show... Hope we get a blu ray remastering of it once TNG finishes!

1 vote for Improbable Cause. The story was very good when you put the two-parter together. However, if you watch just the first part on its own, not a lot really happens.

If this doesn't happen it will be the second biggest disappointment of my life, ahead of several sporting events but behind getting c-blocked by the USAF on my wedding night.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

Another vote for In the Hands of the Prophets. Great season 1 episode, but the bar was raised in subsequent seasons. Robin Christopher (not to be confused with Christopher Robin) sure was a good looking lady.

I'll kill the Hands of the Prophets. Good episode, Winn and Bareil were interesting, but really only sets up the great things to come than aspire to greatness itself.

^Scores reset, and you could have voted for the next round right away.

I guess I'll vote for The Wire, and I love that episode. I guess if I were asked about my top 14 episodes, they would be these.

That's correct.

My next vote goes to Return to Grace. I think that Starship Down should've been runner-up over this one. It's the weakest left in my view. DS9 is so strong that at this point of the game, pretty much every round is going to be a matter of "this is a great episode but I like the others more".

Pretty much what you said. Good episode, but a Dukat/Kira character piece is not -as- good as the rest. Return to Grace +1

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

Why do I think this is only going to get harder and harder to choose?
