Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Past Tense was notable for depicting racism not from the perspective of a well-meaning white liberal, as seen in previous iterations of Star Trek, but through the eyes of people of color directly threatened by violence and indifference.

Oct 23, 2017 | Full Review…

There's no definitive protagonist on DS9, no single hero like Picard of TNG or the Kirk/Spock/McCoy trifecta of TOS. Sisko may get top billing, but he's first among equals. All viewpoints are welcome, all are treated with equal respect.

Top Critic

Past Tense offers is classic Trek, even when it's gleefully contradicting and ignoring genre tropes. Think of it as the anti-'City on the Edge of Forever.'

Oct 23, 2017 | Full Review…

Everything begins small, but this year features major revelations and developments for certain characters and ends with another cliffhanger of sorts that really lets people know that the series is going down a darker path than its predecessors.

Oct 23, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Relations between the Federation and the Dominion heat up and the Cardassians form an alliance with the Romulans in the third season.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 3

  • Aug 29, 2019
    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's third season is more action-packed and full of adventure than ever before. In order to confront the Dominion threat Commander Sisko requisitions Starfleet's fist and only warship, the Defiant, and takes it into the Gamma Quadrant to find the Founders and negotiate a peace; and when that fails the Cardassians and Romulans take matters into their own hands. Meanwhile Kai Winn negotiates a peace treaty with Cardassia but soon nearly starts another civil war on Bajor. Additionally, the origins of Odo and Garak are finally revealed. Also, several new recurring characters are introduced, including the Female Changeling, Leeta, Moogie (Quark's mom), Liquidator Brunt, Kasidy Yates, and Lieutenant Commander Michael Eddington. In Season 3 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine really finds its footing and starts telling its own stories (as opposed to being a version of TNG).

    Berman out! The most fortune thing ever occurd ib«n a star trek serie. The plot of the Dominium arrives
  • Feb 02, 2020
    A little dated now but still great viewing. A good running story with fun sub plots and great characters
  • Dec 27, 2019
    DS9's first great season
  • Oct 17, 2019
    With each passing season this show begins to watch more ling Next Gen, which is painful for me, because the main thing I like about Deep Space Nine is how it distances itself from TNG's format, which I found dull and predictable most of the time. Once they get the Defiant, most episodes could have the cast extracted, and the TNG crew inserted with very little writing changes needing to be made. Felt more like they were using leftover scripts from TNG rather than writing for DS9. Can't stand the Dax or Bashir heavy episdoes, and this season has plenty. Still, star trek is better with an overarching story and most of the characters are still more likeable than the crew from TNG or TOS.

    The beginning and the end of this season thing really start getting interesting.
  • Jan 06, 2018
    The show finally finds its stride in Season 3 and almost every episode is great AND important to the overall story of the series and its characters. When it comes to the average quality of a season's episodes, Season 3 is really good and it only gets better from here.

    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 this is the season when it all started to come together
  • 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
  • Jan 04, 2016
    Possibly my least favorite of all of the Star Trek series, but that's not to say it's bad. It's just different. It's more focused on war and diplomacy, than the exploration and science based stories I like so much from the other series. While the stories weren't as appealing to me as other series, the cast was great! One of my favorite ensembles in all of Trek actually and the series improved in later seasons. It's still Trek and it's still great despite some of my issues with it.
