Product Description

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 ballsy 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

Product Description

Closing two-part story from the seventh season of the second 'Star Trek' spin-off. In 'What You Leave Behind Part 1', the crew of the Defiant prepare to do battle with the Dominion, while Kira faces execution at the hands of the Jem Hadar. 'What You Leave Behind Part 2' sees the DS9 personnel preparing to disband in the wake of the Dominion War, but not before the Emissaries of the Prophets and the Pah Wraiths face off one final time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Space Nine at its best. 3 Jun 2000
The thing about DS9 was that it was set in one place, so it amassed a lot of regular guest stars, who all needed to have their stories tied up. Some already had been, Rom,Gowron and Martok are examples. I was very dissapointed that this was not the episode that the Defiant bit the dust, although it went down fighting. I feel it would have been more dramatic that Sisko looses his ship as the Federation gains peace. It also took me a while to realise Sisko wasn't dead, just spending time with the Prophets. It was such a shame Jadzia did not appear in Worf's little memory montage next to Ezri, but at least Julian finally got what he wanted. How far do those spots go? Somebody please tell us!
DS9 always stuck out as different. it wasn't afraid to put forward strong and sometimes outstanding episodes (Far Beyond The Stars). The characters evolved in a way never seen before, the relationships between them far more complex than others. They had to live with the conseuences of their actions the week before unlike Jean-Luc and his crew. And thats why people either loved or hated it. I loved it, and unless they make a series of the New Frontier books, it will always be my favorite. A fitting end to a wonderful series, and please Rick Berman... please please please please do a DS9 film!

Great character scenes, special effects and a moving score. Star Trek has never been this good again.

This is a truly upsetting and action packed round up for what turned out to be one of the most popular Star Trek series ever! I would recommend this to anyone who likes DS9 and watches it regularly. Even if you have not seen the preceeding episodes it still makes alot of sense. It completes the Dominion war well and raps up all the main characters. It is one of the best episodes ever seen although it does re-use alot of computer generated battle shots.

3.0 out of 5 stars should have been better 14 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Yes, great battles, the return of the Defiant, these were good. But the plot was weak as the ending. Sisko died, Worf, Odo Miles left the station and Rom became Grand Nagus... It was not bad, but also was not the best DS9 Episode. If you are waiting for a fianl episode like All Good Things this certainly is not it.

5.0 out of 5 stars DS9 comes to a dramatic close 14 Mar 2000
By A Customer
'What You Leave Behind' is, unfortunatley, Deep Space Nines last ever episode. It features all the great things Star Trek is good for - big battles, great storylines, character exploration and dramatic scenes. By the end of this episode a character will die (and no its not Sisko as someone else said in another review), and 4 major characters will have left the station (probably for good). This episode is fantastic, its a shame DS9 has finished for ever. Atleast Star Trek Voyager is still going, and for those of you who think Voyager is rubbish just buy Voyager 6.1 and I bet you change your mind.
