Product Description

Product Description

Two episodes from season 6 of the Deep Space Nine series. 'In the Pale Moonlight' sees Sisko deciding to call on old enemies the Romulans for help in the war with the Dominion. In 'His Way', Odo immerses himself in the lifestyle of the swinging nightclub singer, courtesy of the ship's holosuite. In his new guise, he finds it easy to win over a holographic Kira, but faces more of a challenge when he tries to use his charms on the real-life model.

From Amazon.co.uk

From the outset, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was about conflict. Producers Rick Berman and Michael Piller challenged the utopian ideals of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek universe to create something totally different from its predecessors. That meant no familial camaraderie, squeaky-clean Federation diplomacy, or beige décor. Instead they wanted inter-personal friction, ruthless enemies (Gamma Quadrant Imperialists--The Dominion) and rebellion at every turn. The DS9 concept was originally facilitated by introducing the Cardassian/Bajoran war during The Next Generation's final days. After a muted first reception fans gradually came to accept the new look, but no-one liked Star Trek without a starship and eventually the producers capitulated to viewers' wishes by introducing the USS Defiant (an apt name) in Season 3.

Relying far less on technobabble than TNG, DS9 was unafraid to focus on matters of the spirit instead, demonstrating a gutsy independence from its parent shows. Taking up the gauntlet thrown down by Babylon 5, improved CGI space battles also became a fan favourite. Throughout the increasingly serialised story arc there were rebellious factions within the different establishments: Kira had belonged to the Shakaar resistance cell; The Maquis was Starfleet vs Cardassians; Section 31 was a secret Starfleet group; The True Way was a Bajoran group opposed to peace; the Cardassians had their Obsidian Order and the Romulans their Gestapo-like Tal Shiar. Yet for all its constant bickering and espionage (even Bashir got to be James Bond!), there was always some contemporary social commentary lurking: the Ferengi were used as a comedic foil to frown on materialistic greed; drugs were looked at via the Jem'Hadar foot soldiers' addiction to Ketracel White.

Perhaps Sisko summed up the real heart of things: "Bajor doesn't need a man, it needs a legend". A future vision that retains a place for religion and spirituality turned out to be Deep Space Nine's first best destiny. --Paul Tonks

Finally, they're back! The Romulans are the most under-used race in the Star Trek universe, and now, they're in the Dominion War. 'In the Pale Moonlight' is without a doubt, my favourite episode. It's a real revalation about Garak, showing just how cold and cruel he can be. Avery Brooks' performance as Sisko is exceptional. It's quite a big episode for Sisko as well, revealing something about his character which hasn't been seen before. He says he's a conspirator, traitor and an accessory to murder. 'And what's worse, I think I can live with it.' Absolutely brilliant.

"In the Pale Moonlight" is perhaps DS9's best episode. With a compelling story and excellent acting, its a tour de Force for the series. "His Way" is a very different type of DS9 episode. Its a character piece, mainly Odo's, and introduces Vic Fontaine. Its an odd episode for the middle of a war, but its excellently executed.

'His Way' is one of my favourite Deep Space 9 episodes (although not *the* favourite). Finally Odo discovers romance, and he admits to Major Kira what the rest of us have known for so long - that he is in love with her ! This is a lovely exploration of Odo's desire to be more of a 'humanoid' than a shape-shifter, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
