New to DS9. I have now watched all Star Trek episodes/series but this one. I am in 3rd season now. I actually came here to find out why Thomas Riker & O'Brien had such a confusing interaction. But it seems I am not supposed to ask that because it was asked 3 years ago and everyone gets pissy about it. I am starting to like the show. Started off a bit bland. But I feel all of them (except TOS) do. Looking ahead I see some 6 or 7 parters. Just my style. Not always great for ratings. But this show lasted 7 seasons, same VOY & NG. This impresses me because this show gets somewhat bashed and is deemed unpopular by many. Only TOS and Enterprise were canceled. Sadly.
