The Orb 89: ‘Nuff Said / by Trek fm

DS9 Season One Overview.

When you look back at the whole of Deep Space Nine, the first season feels a bit out-of-place. The tone of the episodes in this freshman outing don’t quite mesh with the persona DS9 took on in later seasons. Yet there are plenty of seeds being planted in these early adventures, and there are even a few moments of sheer brilliance.

In this episode of The Orb, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing take a trip through every episode from DS9 Season One to see which shine, which don’t, and what elements connect with the overall series arc—either hinting at the greatness to come or falling under the label of Niner Essentials.

Running Time: 1 hour 13 minutes 37 seconds
