Deep Space Nine Episode Ranks
Way before it became a 21st century television staple, Deep Space Nine embraced long-form storytelling arcs early (Season 2’s “Circle Trilogy”) and often (the Klingon conflict, the Dominion War). DS9 was a game-changing series with deep, layered characters found not only in the regular cast (Sisko, Kira, Dax, etc.), but also in the talented supporting players (Garak, Dukat, Weyoun, Nog, etc.).
Deep Space Nine is my favorite Trek series. Hands down. So what’s number one on my list? Is it the homeless allegory Past Tense? Or the nostalgic Tribbles sequel Trials and Tribbleations? Or maybe one of the many episodes so poignantly capturing the consequence of war (like In a Pale Moonlight or The Siege of AR-558)?
