5.0 out of 5 stars This viewer is not confused... 31 Dec 2005
By Niner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Who's idea was it to let Paul Tonks write the Amazon editorial reviews of the DS9 DVD sets? He's entitled to his opinions about the show, but his sweeping statements about how the intersecting plot lines, number of cast members, presence of comedic episodes, etc., "confuse the viewer" are condescending and patronizing. Why can't he just admit that the show confuses/aggravates him? I consider DS9's risky narrative density one of its most appealing and challenging aspects, even when it misfired, and I imagine I'm not alone. Speak for yourself, Paul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Amazon Editorial 29 Sep 2003
By Karen Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I'm mainly posting this in oposition to the editorial above. This person does not know Trek very well to not recognize what is by far the best season of Deep Space Nine and argueable, the best season of all Star Trek.
The introduction of Section 31 gave everyone something to talk about. Far Beyond the Stars was an artistic masterpeice. And the death of Jadzia Dax, I must say, the writer of the editorial has it all wrong. Terry Farrell wanted to leave the show. True enough, she didn't want her character killed, but she did make the decision to leave. That may make her character's departure seem out of place, but none the less appropriate. The Dominion War has been faught, officially and unofficially since Season 3 (which began with major tensions with them) and lasted until the very last episode of the series. It is only logical to conclude that someone will die. Sisko reads through thousands of names of casualties at the hands of the Dominion, yet he never lost anyone of his crew until Jadzia. This makes it much more potent...it makes the war seem personal...and the Devil (Dukat) is a more real enemy to Sisko than the Dominion.
Art, plan and simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very memorable season 27 Oct 2003
By makiwi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's hard for me to pick any one season of DS9 as being the best, but season 6 is perhaps the most interesting season of all. The reason for this is that they took several risks.
One of them of course is the use of long, involved story lines. Almost more than any othe sci-fi series (with the possible exception of Babylon 5), DS9 showed that war was a messy, complicated business, not just in terms of body count but in compromised values, shifting allegiences, and tough decisions that may or may not be right. Sisko truly comes into his own as the leader of the station as well as a key figure in the war. The highlight of the main war story arc is In the Pale Moonlight, a true masterpiece of storytelling about the seamy side of war. Almost as good as this exceptional episode in the general story line is Inquisition, which introduces the KGB- or even Gestapo? -like Section 31(and they work for the good guys!)
Every Trek season has it's off-topic type of episodes, and season 6's are some of the best. Even the Ferengi episodes are not that bad - The Magnificent Ferengi is a comic highlight. Who Mourns for Morn is uneven but nevertheless makes use of one of the most famous non-speaking parts on TV, Morn the barfly. Statistical Probabilities is a very interesting intellectual episode that furthers the story of Julian Bashir as a genetically enhanced human, and shows what can go wrong with such "enhancements". Valiant shows the effect of war on kids (a young Academy squad who somehow end up commanding their own ship after the death of their captain). One Little Ship is a ridiculous but totally fyn episode (Honey, I Shrunk The Runabout!) His Way introduced James Darren as Vic Damone, a holographic night club owner with self-awareness - since Voyager was pursuing the idea of a hologram being a sentient being, this was nice to see - and Vic becomes an important secondary character in season 7. Worf and Jadzia Dax's wedding (You Are Cordially Invited) is a bit cheesy, as many Kllingon episodes tend to be. But the Worf-Jadzia relationship was one of the very few marriages shown in Trek (aside from the O'Briens), and later episodes managed to show the difficulties of being in the same war with the one you love quite effectively, until the death of Jadzia in the last episode. The death itself was quite abrupt - almost up there with the death of Tasha Yar in TNG, but in the context of war it makes sense. Death in war is senseless...
I left the best for last - Far Beyond The Stars. This is a transcendent episode, and a must-see for any sci-fi fan - even if you don't like Trek. It asks the question, are we real? Or are we just a figment of someone's imagination? And what is it that makes what we dream of? This idea was explored somewhat in a Next Generation episode (Message In A Bottle), but it's really told beautifully here.
I can't really think of a truly bad episode in this season, like a couple of the clunkers in both season 5 and 7. All in all, this season is a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, Mind-Boggling Season 29 Mar 2003
By Adam Dukovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For my money, Deep Space Nine's Sixth Season was the series' best, and that is quite a distinction. The show tells stories in this season that are both more epic and more personal than ever before, features genuine twists, great acting, of course, as well as some infinitely memorable moments.
The season begins with a sensational story arc that picks up where season 5's "A Call to Arms" left off. The arc is perhaps the show's best, and brings about many developments: Nog becoming an officer, Gul Dukat's daughter getting killed by his second-in-command, Starfleet retaking the station. The show then segues back into its blend of character-based drama and war tales that make this season so good. Character stories are plentiful here and include: Worf and Jadzia tying the knot in "You are Cordially Invited...", Bashir being reunited with his not-quite-so-well-adjusted genetically engineered friends in "Statistical Probabilities", and Dukat's truly evil nature being exposed in the terriffic "Waltz". Marc Alaimo delivers an astonishing portrayal of the once-proud Cardassian Military Leader now a schizoid, hallucinating, paranoid man driven hopelessly mad by his beloved daughter's death. The highlights continue with "Far Beyond the Stars", an episode on race relations on Earth, circa 1950, that has echoes of TNG's "The Inner Light". But where that episode was warm, this one is painful and uncomfortable, but unmistakeably brilliant. It even ventures into the metaphysical, onto the nature of perception and dreams. A memorable episode. Sisko also had some important development in "The Reckoning", where we truly begin to see how great the changes in his soul have become when he is willing to be an Abraham to save Bajor. There were plenty of other character-driven episodes. Chief O'Brien befriends a criminal in "Honor Among Thieves", Kira learns the horrible truth about her mother in "Wrongs Darker...", and Bashir is recruited into a ultrasecret intelligence agency in "Inquisition", which brought us the first glimpse of the amoral Section 31 group, and "Tears of the Prophets" has the most shocking plot twist of all, with Dukat becoming indwelt by a Pah-wraith and murdering one of the crew, as well as the disappearance of the wormhole. There were also plenty of lighter moments. "His Way" introduces the very popular Vic Fontaine hologram who helps Odo out with his love life. "The Magnificent Ferengi" has Quark, Rom, Nog, Brunt and various other Ferengi attempting to free Quark's mother from Dominion incarceration. "Who Mourns for Morn" is the only episode dedicated to everyone's favorite barfly, "One Little Ship" is a cheeky tribute to old science fiction shows where people become miniaturized.
This season also includes my personal favorite episode. "In the Pale Moonlight" is undoubtedly the most spectacular episode that the show ever created. For an episode where nobody leaves the station, nobody gets in a firefight and without even a single scene of space combat, some might wonder how this could be the best episode, let alone one of the most exciting. It is both, in my opinion. The episode centers on Ben Sisko's attempt to gain the Romulans as allies in their fight against the Dominion. In order to do this, Sisko fabricates internal Dominion files, trades a potentially lethal substance for an essential data rod, and becomes indirectly responsible for the death of a Romulan senator. However, the plan soon gets out of Sisko's control, and he must continue down the road paved with good intentions. The episode is beautifully paced, with several twists and a great sudden reversal at the end. One must marvel at the choice that Sisko had to make: save countless lives and compromise your moral integrity or don't and suffer the consequences. A thoroughly nuanced and powerful hour of television, with Avery Brooks' most powerful performance in the run of the show. After watching this episode, it is easy to see why most DS9 fans hail him as Star Trek's best captain. Andrew Robinson as Garak also turns in a memorable performance.
In short, the highlights of this season are too plentiful to list. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek Deep Space Nine Season-6 on DVD 15 Feb 2003
By quasar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Dear Amazon Customers,
One of the most exciting series of programs in the Star Trek universe returns in its sixth season on DVD. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in season 6 takes on some of the most aggressive story development ever in the Star Trek universe of programs. It is the sixth season that really defines Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the pinnacle of SCI-FI shows in the Star Trek universe.
In the sixth season, Benjamin Sisko played by "Avery Brooks" must come to terms with himself and makes a decision as to his dual roles as the Emissary of Bajor and as a Commander in Starfleet. Even as he leads an assault force that frees the Space Station Deep Space Nine from the clutches of the Cardassians and the Dominion, he finds himself torn having to struggle between both roles. The Federation has asked him on a number of occasions to choose between his dual occupations. In season 6 of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Sisko must make his decision.
It is in the sixth season that the audience learns even more about the turmoil inside of the character Odo played by "Rene Auberjonois" and his wanting to return the Great Link and to his own people. Troubled at Odo's loyalties to his people, Kira Nerys played by "Nana Visitor" confronts Odo with the question as to which side of the war he is on. Odo is caught again with the decision to pick between his love for Major Kira and his desire to return to his own kind. These events leads the two characters into one of the most tremulous period of their lives.
During this season, the character Miles O'Brien played by "Colm Meaney" is reunited with his family but is still cautious and tries to protect them from the horrors of war. Although he has never questioned the actions or his loyalty to Starfleet, O'Brien finds himself confronted with the decision to help friends or to blindly follow the orders of his superiors. The writers of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine finally give the opportunity for "Colm Meaney" to show some excellent dramatic acting as the character Chief O'Brien.
What would season 6 be without the appearance of the most popular race in the entire Star Trek universe, the Klingons. In season 6 we get to see the wedding between the Klingon character Worf played by "Michael Dorn" and the Trill character Jadzia Dax played by "Terry Farrell". Their sometimes on again off again romance makes for some interesting dialog between the two but finally it comes to a conclusion with the wedding ceremony which reveals even more about the Klingon society. One of the most aggressive aspects of the show is revealed on the last episode of this season in which both Jadzia Dax and Commander Worf's lives are dramactically affected forever.
Many SCI-FI fans and Trekkers alike will be dazzled this season with the special effects of the first ever space battle scene shown in it's entirety from start to finish. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine had already received accolades for it's special effects in previous episodes but in this season, the audience gets treated to the most spectacular space battle scene ever shown in the Star Trek universe of programs.
I could tell you so much more about this season but the best thing for you to do is purchase Star Trek: Deep Space Nine season 6 on DVD. You will find that this season is the absolute best that the Star Trek universe of programs has to offer. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in season 6 reached all new heights in story, character and special effects development which has not been repeated in the Star Trek universe of programs since the airing of this show. You will thoroughly enjoy Star Trek: Deep Space Nine season 6 on DVD.
