More DS9

I've finished watching series two of DS9 and...and...they blew up the Enterprise! Okay, so it wasn't the actual Enterprise, it was actually the Odyssey, but it was exactly the same kind of ship, so point made. That is one hell of a way to end a season and introduce the new villains. Viewers must have been on tenterhooks during the hiatus back when it originally aired.

The Dominion = awesome villains.

The casual build up was quite fantastic, especially when I realised that the first mention of the Dominion was in a Ferengi humour episode.

Generally, I loved how the show would take small things and carry them over into the next episode, things like Sisko asking O'Brien to give Jake a job, and Jake's job, or friendships. The attention to detail is really appreciated.

I started to like Sisko a lot more towards the end of the season. He actually seemed to do things, which was nice. His rant in The Marquis Part II has got to be my favourite in the whole of Trek:

"On Earth, there is no poverty, no crime, no war. You look out the window of Starfleet Headquarters and you see Paradise. Well, it's easy to be a saint in Paradise, but the Maquis do not live in Paradise. Out there in the demilitarized zone, all the problems haven't been solved yet. Out there, there are no saints — just people. Angry, scared, determined people who are going to do whatever it takes to survive, whether it meets with Federation approval or not!"

I'm starting to get now how he's the same guy as the guy in In the Pale Moonlight. (Of course, he said this to Kira, talk about preaching to the converted. Would have been more awesome if he told it to the Admiralty).

Cut because I have quite a bit to say )

Favourite episodes had to be Necessary Evil (the one in which Odo opens up a five year old murder case in which Kira is the prime suspect), and Crossover (the mirror verse episode. I do love AU shenanigans and I really loved how it tied into TOS).

Oh, and somebody put Kira and Dax's mission in The Siege on YouTube, in which Kira and Dax find, fix up and fly a busted old Bajoran space craft and get into a dogfight over Bajor in order to save they day, while bantering the whole time. It's wonderful for so many reasons.
