    Not since the last season was released on DVD for the first time have I watched an episode...until tonight. I've decided to watch the entire series on Netflix. It's great to see the old gang again. This is the one series of Trek that I feel has the greatest development for much of the cast. I forgot all about Nog's journey until I saw him again.

    Even on Netflix, The Emissary is a darkly-lit episode. I also couldn't help notice that the uniforms seem a bit plain. Not that there's anything wrong with them, but after Enterprise, I'd kind of like if the DS9 one-piece had been designed with more pockets. Basically an Enterprise overall with the same colour scheme as DS9. Just saying...

    TNG was my first love, but DS9 from the Jem'Hadar episode on was my favorite Trek. The Wolf 359 teaser scene from S1 ep1 was incredible, but the show clunked along for much of the first 2.5 seasons (as did the others). Best developed antagonist, alien of otherwise, in Dukat. The Dominion war was excellent for its character development as much as its depiction of starfleet at war. Worf added a lot. Oh, and I still remember the first time "Tears of the Prophets" aired and the space battles reached a new level not only going all CG, but speeding up movement where earlier CG (The Sacrifice of Angels) was good but still mimicked the slow movements of the physical models. There was something real and satisfying in hearing that synthehol really tasted like crap too.

    Finished DS9 for the very first time recently and absolutely loved it from start to finish.

    I posted my thoughts after recently watching the finale in this thread:

    Can I officially be called a "Niner" now? :angel:
