Conflict between the
Cardassian's and the Bajoran's is the key ingredient to the success that is
Deep Space Nine. Originally the Bajoran's were a peaceful race of
cultured and artistic people and when the Cardassian's came to visit it didnít
take long before they overrun the Bajoran home world.
After many years of Cardassian
rule the Star Fleet came and freed the people of Bajor, now the space station
that orbits the planet is Star Fleetís main form of helping the Bajorans back
to their previous glory while still keeping the Cardassians out of the way.
The stories are very politically based, and Captain Benjamin Sisko the
commander of Deep Space Nine must tread lightly to keep both the Cardassians
and Bajorans happy.
On their way out the Cardassians
have stripped the planet of anything they consider valuable, and the space
station was originally Cardassian and now that Star Trek must take care of the
Bajorans they have taken over the space station but the Cardassians have
stripped that too.
This has been given to Commander
Benjamin Sisko, who has reluctantly accepted this mission, after he lost his
wife in the battle with the Borg. Benjamin is now forced to raise his teenage
son Jake all by himself and with the troubles of two feuding races he must be
on extra guard.
Benjamin is accompanied by both
his loyal security chief Odo who is a shape shifter who has no idea where he
comes from, which he will come to explore throughout the entire series.
Not forgetting his most distinguished liaison officer from the planet Bajor,
Kiera, There are also many other unforgettable characters throughout the
series, the local bartender Quark a greedy race known as the Ferengi, he gets
up to all sorts of mischief. Siskoís staff also includes other core
characters such as Chief Miles O'Brien, Dr Julian Bashir, Lt Jadzia Dax a very
old friend of Siskoís.
The space station has just come
into contact with a stable wormhole and the only known stable wormhole in the
universe. The wormhole leads to a section of the galaxy (the Gamma
Quadrant) that would otherwise take a century to traverse.
There is an absolute slew of
episodes that range from political misconduct to murder investigations, youíll
find that there are several instances where the story will take you back to
the Cardassian occupation and events that happened years ago are still
effecting the current goings on at the space station, with the devious Quark
who will do anything for a buck causes nothing but stress and unrest for the
The sound quality throughout is
very good and the special sound effects for, well basically machines that
donít exist are absolutely astounding. Picture quality is clear
throughout and more importantly the special effects and the make up used to
create so many different species, you can only imagine the amount of work that
went into it, congratulations another great Star Trek Series on the way.
Extras are all on disc seven there is a smorgasbord of extras and very well
worth your dollar watch every single one.
