Re: DS9 Forum Welcome Thread: Hello fellow Niners!

Well I figure I ought to introduce myself too. I just got a computer a few months ago and am coming into my full Trek frenzy. I can download pictures and movies now with relative ease, which is great. I missed most of DS9 after the fourth season and have been really pissed off with my lack of information during the Dominion war. I just got season five and six and am most of the way though them both -Dax look's great at her wedding- and am finally happy. I also followed the rest of the series from a young age but always believed that DS9 was the most under appreciated of the bunch. Just because they didn't do so much Boldly Go as they did in the other series just meant that the writers had to put more effort into the characters and their interactions.

Welcome to the DS9 forum, fishingforships. Absolutely love your name xD. And I can understand being irritated at lack of knowledge of the war. Those are some great episodes as well.

DS9 'Boldly' Went. Just not in the traditional alien of the week sense usually.

Re: DS9 Forum Welcome Thread: Hello fellow Niners!

Hello there everyone! I'm new here, just stumbled upon this forum today and got very excited. I'm a big Star Trek fan. I love TNG and VOY, but DS9 has to be my ultimate favorite. It was such a captivating series that I recently re-watched a few months ago. I could watch them all again right now. I absolutley loved the character development and story lines in DS9. Also, Odo was my favorite character . I look forward to posting on here and getting to know all of you!

Re: DS9 Forum Welcome Thread: Hello fellow Niners!

Zardoz speaks to you. The gun... I mean, DS9 is good, the new movie is evil. The new movie spreads idiocy and mediocrity, which has always been a plague of man. DS9 was ahead of its time, and made its viewers think, and consider the story being told. Except the Ferengi episodes. But at least the large ensemble cast was not neglected in favor of only two or three main characters. Zardoz has spoken. Go forth and watch DS9.

Hello Zardoz, you won't find an argument here. DS9 was the best Star Trek TV Series. The new movie is for non-Trekkers. I would add that the Star Trek Novels are really cool, especially the re-launches. Welcome, and enjoy the discussions.

Zardoz speaks.

Zardoz enjoys some of the novels, but finds that the newer novels do not interest him. Some of the older novels have also not aged well for him. Zardoz misses having a good Star Trek series like DS9 on the air.

Zardoz has spoken.

Re: DS9 Forum Welcome Thread: Hello fellow Niners!

Can I call myself a Niner if I haven't quite seen the entire show yet?

It's a long story. Trek fan from way back in the days of TOS syndicated reruns, followed the movies and TNG. DS9's "Emissary" blew my mind, and I followed Nine through the first four seasons during its orignial broadcast. After that, the local station started playing games with the schedule every few weeks and I lost track of the show. I caught occasional episodes through the next three years, and the reruns were scheduled at awkward times of the day or night. In short, there's significant episodes and events I just haven't seen yet. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole show eventually, even if I have to rent them like a dilettante.

Yet another newbie who loves DS9. You know i didn't get it when it first aired, but years later I got the boxsets and it has now grown to become my favourite series. Regularly work my way through all 7 series.

I like DS9 too. Great character development and I love shows with proper story arcs rather than being a collection of disjointed episodes that could be watched in any order (I'm looking at you, TOS).

Man, honestly, I fell a little sorry for myself because I've spent so much of my time hating deeply DS9, but never bothered watching more than two episodes. Now I watched a hole bunch a fell weeks ago and I can't stop watching it now, in so little time DS9 managed to go from my least favorite series to 1st with TNG, in less than weeks, and I haven't even finished watching it yet. I don't know why I hated it so much, but that's past now, DS9 is incredible.
