STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE REVIEWED
“Deep Space Nine” is my wife’s favorite Star Trek show. So, this has been a fun last two weeks watching this series again. After the initial mourning for this show never making it to HD, we decided to stick with the budget valued recent Deep Space Nine release. What was the big deal? It was the last seven seasons of releases packaged in a tight bundle similar to other CBS/Paramount releases.
The Tribbles time travel episode was fun, but so much of the show was character and atmosphere. More than anything, this show feels the closest to Roddenberry’s original concept. The bonus features will help long-term Trekkers, as it doesn’t seem to be getting ported over into the future editions. I can say as a casual fan, that breaking down the 24th Century into Wiki friendly style terms helps. There’s only so many times that you can handle your wife screaming at you for calling Quark a “space Jew” stereotype.
I was right, but the bonus materials explains it in a better way. When it boils down to the brass tacks, the show starts amazing and then takes too long to wrap up. I’d love to see a new Star Trek show explore the ideas presented here. But, I’m not holding my breath.
