Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 1

  • May 10, 2022
    Not the best season for sure but gets the job done
  • Mar 22, 2022
    Despite a rocky start and some lacklustre episodes there is already gold in this first season - Kira's character arc over this season through Emissary, Past Prologue, Battle Lines, Progress, Duet and In The Hands of the Prophets is spectacular. Quark and Odo's banter and frenemy relationship is already strong and lights up otherwise dodgy episodes. Sisko's relationship with Jake is also a highlight from the very beginning. O'Brien from TNG is already a strong character with some great episodes and moments. And who can forget Garak's first appearance? Whatever the flaws of the middling episodes through much of the season, Duet and In The Hands of the Prophets at the end of the season are both 5 stars and bring up the score for the entire season in my opinion. That said, it's undeniable that the show is finding its feet. Sisko and Dax's characters are still undeveloped, Bashir is deliberately unlikeable, and the handful of TNG character appearances end up feeling awkward. I still can't recommend skipping any of it, as it's the little character moments that start building the overall tapestry of magnificence that is DS9!

    A Great introduction for a new Star Trek this time it takes place on a captured Space Station that sits at the end of a stable wormhole and thanks to Odo and the Captain and the Female this makes a great introduction to a whole new series!!!!

    Most Star Trek series suffer in their first seasons, and DS9 season 1 is no different. While some episodes are certainly above average, the overall feeling of a darker and heavier Enterprise crew lacks a certain direction in this season. Even if you love this series, unless you're totally new to Star Trek, skip most if not all of this season.

    As a real Star Trek fan, I was very disappointed in the first season of Deep Space Nine. It just doesn't compare to either the original series or The Next Generation. The production value isn't that good, the writing bland and I really dislike Avery Brooks as the captain, his performance is wooden and substandard. Let's hope it gets better from here. Thank goodness for Star Trek Voyager, otherwise I would have lost my faith in the franchise.
  • Jul 26, 2021
    Acting is okay, the plot doesn't flow at times, and I honestly don't like Avery Brooks as a actor, the Cirroc makes Avery look like a b-level actor.
  • Dec 25, 2020
    Inconsistent first season. The Bets are Duet, Emissary and In the Hands of the Prophets. The Worst are Move Along Home, The Forsaken and The Storyteller
  • Dec 22, 2020
    The Mission of the Enterprise was to seek out new worlds. The mission of all Star Trek Shows is to explore the human condition. I rewatch DS9 every couple of years, and I miss the show at the same time. I'd say, that I'd love new episodes, but the current Star Trek series have turned me off to Star Trek, so... I fear what the current owners of the franchise would do to it.
  • Oct 19, 2020
    Took me a bit to warm up to, but definitely worth the watch!
  • Sep 23, 2020
    You wouldn't imagine the heights DS9 achieves in the later seasons as the series sets itself rather slowly, but stick with it.
