Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 5

  • Mar 22, 2022
    The Dominion War begins and the show just starts knocking it out of the park episode after episode. What even is there to say? Absolutely spectacular television. 5/5 doesn't do it enough justice. Extra special shout out to Trials and Tribble-ations for doing such an incredible job of celebrating the 30th anniversary of Star Trek.
  • Jan 02, 2022
    Everything you know and think you believe about Star Trek is about to be completely tossed out, for the better. DS9 completely revolutionizes the Star Trek series in this season, adding increased grey to the morality of the cast and showing complex political engagement growing less and less savory, less utopian, far more realistic.
  • Feb 13, 2021
    Brilliant season. The best episodes from this season are Apocalypse Rising, Things Past, Trials and Tribble-ations, In Purgatory's Shadow, By Inferno's Light, Soldiers of the Empire, Blaze of Glory and Call to Arms.

    The second half is again the stronger one, but S5 is clearly better than S4.
  • Sep 14, 2020
    More great episodes To enjoy!
  • Jun 17, 2020
    In my opinion, This is the season that made DS9 better than TNG
  • Feb 10, 2020
    The war o Star Trek, Not agains Roddenberrys future. It is the deffense of his view. A great Armada is coming to destroy the federation. And the heores must fight for their freedom. Almost on the highest level
  • Jan 06, 2018
    Even the occasional embarrassing dud like Let He Who Is Without Sin can't slow down this juggernaut of a show. The Dominion War has finally begun, and it takes the rest of the series to tell this fantastic story arc.
  • Oct 28, 2017
    the best trek tv show but it took a couple of seasons to get going but i loved they way they had recurring characters and ongoing plots and stories
  • Jun 06, 2017
    The Dark Trek, deep space nine sets itself apart quickly from TNG but really hits it stride from season 2 and with the exception of having to deal with the forced Klingon addition of season four stays the course to bring great story telling. The only Trek
