Storyline

The stable wormhole discovered by the Deep Space Nine crew is known to the Bajoran people as the Celestial Temple of their Prophets. Sisko, as discoverer of the wormhole and its inhabitants, is therefore the Emissary of Bajoran prophesy. The wormhole's other end is in the Gamma Quadrant, halfway around the galaxy from Bajor. That section of space is dominated by the malevolent Dominion. The Dominion is led by the Changelings, the race of shapeshifters to which Odo belongs. As of the beginning of the sixth season, Cardassia has joined the Dominion, and together they are waging war on the Federation and their Klingon allies. The war is quickly becoming the most costly war ever for the Federation, and the Deep Space Nine crew must fight to protect their way of life. Written by Matthew D. Wilson <mdw1900@rit.edu>

Goofs

During the opening title sequence, the wormhole is shown at inconsistent angles to how it looks as the crew observe it from the station's windows. In the title sequence, the wormhole is angled upward at approximately a 40° angle. When the crew observes it from the station, it's pointed down at about a 260° angle. However, it must be remembered not only is there no "up" or "down" in space, but also that the DS9 station is mobile. It is transportable via thrusters and so can be repositioned at any angle around the wormhole by the crew for whatever purpose they see fit. See more »

Quotes

Nog: [Jake and Nog are trying to fly a Runabout with a disabled autopilot] Can't we reassemble the autopilot?
Jake Sisko: If Chief O'Brien taught me anything it's that it's a lot easier taking things apart then putting them back together.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits for "Emissary" lacked the wormhole opening that all future episodes featured. Starting with Season 4, the opening credits included additional spacecraft and activity around the station, including the Defiant flying into the wormhole. See more »

User Reviews

 
Deep Space Nine (out of Ten).
21 September 2019 | by swordsnareSee all my reviews

Been watching the franchise series' in reverse order from a modern day standpoint comparison. Initially felt some of the characters in DS9 were a little irritating as some others have thought, but as it progressed through the series' I was found the character development to reverse my initial thoughts thankfully. Quark as a character is an example of this.

As like many others in the Star Trek, some of the storylines are derivative or overlapping of series. (no show is perfect) This is to be expected from a large number of episodes per season. Luckily there was a continuing narratives throughout to keep one engaged. The inclusion of the USS Defiant starship added another layer of interest, familiarity and diversity to plotlines.

On the whole, the premise of the series being based on a space station adds much-needed interest to an otherwise Starship-based franchises. The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise all share this narrative to varying degrees of success.

Onto re-watching The Next Generation after this. "Shut up, Wesley!"
