Hey fellow DS9 fans... I was one of the reluctant Niners, grew up on TNG and then immediately jumped to VOY, watched DS9 intermittently whenever I was able too, but missed much of the fine narrative details. In retrospect I'm grateful I waited and watched the entire series for the first time in 2005 on DVD when I was more mature; I fell in love with the characters, stories and the new darker-Trek perspective offered by this epic series. *Overall I enjoy all the series for their respective strengths and unique characters. Happy to be a member of such an active community... PEACE!
