    Was the last episode og DS9 when everybody left? Warf went to be the Klingon ambassador and O'brian went to Earth and Cisco was with the Prophets. I would think that was it but it didn't leave me with the feeling of finallity. Can anybody confirm?

    You are correct. The episode was entitled "What You Leave Behind...".

    I can't express in words how much I miss this series! That final season was easily the best television programming I have ever seen!

    I too am eagerly awaiting the DVDs!!!!

    DS9 is one of the most underappreciated, well done series. From beginning to end, it was a better written, better played, and better acted series then other Trek around it. It had the misfortune of being syndicated while Voy had a home, but the quality of acting was superlative.

    DS9's tie ups, small, arching stories that lasted for years, but a consistent growth of the characters, was something that was missing from many other "Trek" shows

    Yup, DS9, the bastard child of Trek. What a great, underappriciated show. All these people whine about Babylon 5, which IMO is a weak pretender to DS9's throne

    I don't know if I'd called syndication a misfortune. I've seen plenty of worthy shows go off the air because they weren't syndicated. Syndicated shows are guaranteed a certain amount of episodes, a show that isn't syndicated has to pray for the ratings. A bad timeslot can kill an excellent show. Take a look at Space: Above and Beyond. Had it been syndicated it would probably still be around, it was a great show, with great effects that got consistently better throughout the season. It easily has the best first season of any sci-fi show in recent memory, including all of the star trek series. Saddly, the show premiered the same year Fox got their sports contracts, and so was shuffled around so much it never got a chance to build an audience.

    Anyways, point being that syndication isn't neccessarily a bad thing.

    Uh don't Rag on B5 which was a great show in it's own right. DS9 followed on much the same path right unto the end with Sheridan going beyond the Rim, and Sisko going with the prophets, B5's Shadow War and DS9's Dominion War. They were joined at the hip and which one "Borrowed" from the other has been argued to death. They were both very good series. DS9 evenmore so in it's relation to the other Trek Shows was the Best in character arc and storylines

    I miss DS9. It had way more finality to it than Voyager did for me. With Voyager, I felt glad that the show was over.

    I missed the first 3 episodes of DS9, but started watching from then on. I LOVED DS9.It was a Saturday ritual to watch it at 7pm.Any plans Id made would have to wait until after 8 [​IMG]
    Unlike alot of others,I think the show started to go downhill once Worf joined but there were some really great episodes afterwards.I miss watching Jeffery Coombs and Marc Alaimo(Wayun and DuKat).Watching the 2 of them exchange dialogue was a real treat.
    BTW,I think DS9 blows Voyager out of the water-no comparing the 2. I cant think of any Voyager episodes that come close to(Im a bit rusty on the ep names) Blood Oath,Captive Pursuit,The Search Parts 1 & 2,The Sons of Mogh,Favor The Bold, Sacrifice of Angels etc

    Thanks Craig S. I was pretty sure that, that was the last episode. I wanted to be sure as I didn't want to miss any.

    I agree with everyone. I liked DS-9 the best. I felt the character development was the best. I like how JonZ states he thinks it went down hill after Warf joined, yet some of the episodes he mentioned, i believe has Warf in them. Never the less, I missed a lot of the last 2 seasons so I used my UTV to catch the midnight reruns on Fox here in Seattle. Thank God for syndication!

    I'm going to miss DS-9. Enterprise is so weak I can't see myself bothering to even try and follow it. I sure would like to see another SCI-FI series, Star Trek or other that has the depth DS-9 had.

    That only goes to show how highly I think of the first 3 seasons [​IMG]
    As I said Im a bit rusty on the episode names and Im too lazy to look them up. Those are the ones I remember by name.
    The show most certainly didnt "suck" once Worf joined. some of the best episodes were after he joined like some of the ones I mentioned. I think the last few seasons as a whole were a bit weaker than the earlier ones. For me anyways.

    I thoought the entire run of the show was really good. But, the last couple of seasons with the war was what I thought was great. I guess I like the battles. Like any show not every episode can be great, and DS9 is no exception. They definately had a few really weak shows in the last couple of seasons. They did however, make up for them with some of the battles.

    DS9 was a great show, especially when you consider the quality of it's successor, Voyager. Please understand that this is all IMO, but to follow up a show of such consistent good quality with one of such consistent poor quality was unfortunate.

    Back to DS9 final episode: I was a little disappointed that Sisko didn't appear to Jake in that dream sequence at the end. It would have been a little more appropriate, I think.

    At its best, DS9 was one of the best-written television series of all time. I fully appreciate the opinions of those who consider it the best Trek series of them all. Far from being the franchise's "bastard child" (that Voyager thing is the runaway qualifier for that distinction), it was simply Trek's most underappreciated incarnation (premiering as it did while TNG was still in full swing).
