Season 5 continues where season 4 left off with a few select members of DS9 undergoing surgery to infiltrate the klingon to empire in order to root out a dominion impostor. The 5th season borders on brilliance with fantastic episodes like the ship, the mid season 2 parter (in purgatory's shadow & in infernos light) before leading to a spectacular season finale which sets up for season 6.Along the way there's some great episodes like rapture when the stations biggest crook & security chief are marooned together on an isolated planet & the genuinely tense & chilling empok nor one of the best episodes of DS9. These are just a few of the great episodes in this a great season of drama & action at a great price.

In what is a fantastic series all the way through, season 5 is in my opinion a stand out season. The Dominion story arc really kicks off, and the final episode is one of the best of the whole run. 5/5 easy.

Ok, I know that there are die heart Star Trek fans who would disagree with me but I think Deep Space 9 is the best Star Trek series. The reason is the humor. I love the humor, and I love the character development in Deep Space 9. It tells you who these individuals are. Better acting and casting. I love the Frenghi character Quark. I think he is my favorite Star Trek character. I like the idea of shape shifters.

Ds9 season 5 starts of well,The first 3 episodes are very watchable,4 episodes on 1 disc youll enjoy the first disc for sure.It starts off carrying on the story from season 4 with Sisko,Worf,Odo and O Brien going undercover as klingons deep into klingon territory to unravel a mstery with the changlings(Odos people)The dominion has secret agents disguised as klingons and the crew have to expose just 1 to stop a war that the dominion wants a war that will cripple Cardassia.
The 2nd episode simple titled The ship is a siege type situation involving the crew and a crashed jem hadar ship and a secret in the ship.
The 3rd episode sees Quark having to fight hand to hand combat with Worfs help to win over his ex Klingon wife,stange but true,a subplot thats contiued from season 3 an episode called The House of Quark.
Eventually the crew of ds9 and starfleet get brand new uniforms that are grey that becomes the new uniform for the Federation.This happens midway through the season.
There are some very strong episodes aswell such as Things past,which sees Garak,Odo,Dax and Sisko being forced to relive events in the lives and events of 4 Bajorans convicted of trying to murder Gul Dukat.one of the few occupation style episodes.An episode which is very polular among most star trek fans is Trials and Tribble-Ations were the crew go back intime to Kirks era,the blending in of the past and present people and ships is quite genius.1 more very strong episode worh mentioning is Soldiers of the Empire which is if your a Klingon fan, youll really love, as it was based around what a series of star trek klingon would be like,based mainly on a kilingon ship you get to see the inside of it for most of the episode.

The viewing figures for this series were always ok but not great... yet this Star Trek spin-off is by far the most critically acclaimed. Why then does nobody listen one of the times they're actually right?
DS9 with its long story arcs and developed characters is far more addictive then almost any other sci-fi tv show... much darker than the other ST shows it is indeed enjoyable and for 6 disks is a bargain. Buy now before Paramount decides to stop even making the DVDs.

The Deep Space Nine series is one of my favourites of the Star Trek franchise. Season 5 has some wonderful episodes including the hybrid Original Series/Deep Space Nine commemorative episode titled "Trials and Tribble-ations". It is seamlessly done and funny to boot. I do love the two guys sent from the temporal police to sort the anomaly out. And Dax in a mini skirt should appeal too.

The only downside is that the picture quality is quite video on this series of DVDs. No sprucing up for modern TV picture quality so the colours can be a bit... murky. Not High Definition quality by any stretch of the imagination. A good buy for fans of the series or anyone wanting to watch them all to see which ones they missed on TV the first few times around.

The characters and stories retain their appeal, and that is what made Deep Space Nine such a good series. Enjoy!

Since getting a real shot in the arm with Worf's arrival in season four, season five capitalises on the strengths of the show with provoking, touching and downright excellent episode.

Best on the DVD is "Trials and Tribble-ations", the best tribute to the original Star Trek series there has ever been. Other highlights in the early part of the season include the Tarantino inspired "The Ship", the Cyrano de Bergerac homage of "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places", the excellent "The Ascent", where Rene Auberjonois and Armin Shimerman have many brilliant scenes together, and the touching "The Begotten".

Later in the season is "In Purgatory's Shadow" and "By Inferno's Light", where the Dominion invades, setting the scene for the Dominion War. The season is wrapped up with the excellent "Call to Arms", the best Star Trek cliffhanger since "The Best of Both Worlds".
