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

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The cliffhanger, which involves Captain Sisko losing Deep Space Nine, the show's namesake, is the best dramatic hook the show ever offered (and that's saying something).

They threw a lot at us this season and turned the show upside down several times. The end result was unforgettable.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

A good crossover episode is always satisfying, and the opportunity to meet the creator of one o fStar Trek: Voyager's most endearing characters, the Emergency Medical Hologram, is too good to pass up.

October 23, 2017 | Full Review…

Once again the writers and Avery Brooks prove that Sisko is unlike any other Starfleet captain.

October 23, 2017 | Full Review…

The fifth season finale of [DS9] hadn't just broken the utopian pacifism of the franchise as a whole, it had broken the very concept of the series by kicking Starfleet off [DS9] and placing the station into the hands of the Dominion.

It's a bold move whose boldness only becomes clear in retrospect. In the moment, everything that happens makes sense. That's why it's so brilliant.
