The fourth series of Deep Space Nine can be summed up in one word: Klingons! The show's producers apparently felt beset from all sides. Babylon 5 was a huge hit, as was Star Trek: Voyager, the flagship of new channel UPN. Stepping up DS9's action quotient seemed to be the answer. Time would tell, however, whether doing so via Trek's tried-and-tested former bad guys was the best solution. Opening with a special two-hour extravaganza, the new year was immediately unfamiliar. Dennis McCarthy's original theme--despite winning an Emmy--had been deemed too subdued. As its upbeat new rendition kicked off, the station was seen in battle and swarming with activity. Moments later, we met old/new crewmember Worf, whose sudden appearance was the result of a brewing invasive strategy by the Klingons. This initiated the first of many loyalty shifts, as the Cardassians became the victims. With plenty of re-appearances by Gowron, Kor, and Kurn, it was clear that an ongoing space opera was being crafted. Dukat revealed a tragedy-ridden daughter; Odo's relationship with his people (and Kira) became increasingly melancholy; and even the Jem'Hadar foot soldiers were given a sympathetic angle by their drug addiction.

Adding to the layers of ambiguity about Earth's (read: the producers') position over being at war, was the "outing" of two recurring characters as rebel activists. Lest we forget the homely/spiritual side of the Captain, time was spent with a future version of Jake, with his father (Brock Peters), and on the nature of his role as "the Emissary." Avery Brooks worked behind the camera a couple of times, but this year the surprise was LeVar Burton directing five shows. There was still time for comedy: the Ferengi warped back to Roswell in 1947 and Bashir played James Bond. But the year will be remembered predominately for its violence. One of the episodes Burton directed had its fight scenes drastically cut, while the series as a whole won an Emmy for its space battle effects.--Paul Tonks

Product Description

The entire fourth season of the 'Star Trek' spin-off series. In 'The Way of the Warrior (Parts 1 and 2)' Captain Sisko calls on Lieutenant Worf to help mediate in the increasingly tense relations between the Klingons and the Federation. 'The Visitor' has an elderly Jake Sisko visited by a young writer who wants to know why Jake stopped writing. He recounts the poignant story of how his father had been feared dead but was actually found to be trapped in sub-space and how, over the years, Jake tried in vain to rescue him from the limbo state. 'Hippocratic Oath' sees Dr Bashir and Chief O'Brien crash land on an uninhabited planet in the Gamma Quadrant and discover a dying platoon of Jem 'Hadar warriors. 'Indiscretion' finds Major Kira and Gul Dukat travelling together to a distant planet where they must investigate a crash site. In 'Rejoined' Dax is confronted with a personal crisis as the wife of one of her former hosts arrives on the station in another host's body, rekindling lost passions that go against everything in Trill society. 'Little Green Men' has Quark crash land on Earth in 1947 in the town of Roswell. 'Starship Down' sees Sisko and his team come under a vicious attack from Jem'Hadar warriors. Kira struggles to save her Captain's life while an unlikely hero has to diffuse a missile. 'The Sword of Kahless' finds veteran Klingon warrior Kor joined by Worf and Dax in a quest for an artefact that would reunite the Klingon Empire. 'Our Man Bashir' has Doctor Bashir and Garak try out a new James Bond style holosuite program. 'Homefront' sees the wormhole begin to open and shut inexplicably. 'Paradise Lost' finds Earth on the edge of martial law as random blood tests are ordered to eliminate the Changeling threat. In 'Crossfire' Shakaar visits the station and causes a security headache for Odo and Worf as a militant Cardassian terrorist group have threatened to assassinate him. 'Return to Grace' has Gul Dukat encounter his old enemy Major Kira when he begins work as a freighter captain. 'Sons of Mogh' sees Worf's brother Kurn decide to commit suicide in order to avoid Klingon dishonour. 'Bar Association' finds Quark's brother Rom driven over the edge by his brother's insensitivity. Rom is determined to break with all Ferengi law and form a trade union, which brings the Ferengi Commerce Authority down on him who will stop at nothing to destroy the union. In 'Accession' an ancient Bajoran light-ship emerges from the wormhole carrying a passenger who believes that he must be the Emissary. 'Rules of Engagement' has Commander Worf face extradition to the Klingon Empire after destroying a civilian Klingon vessel, killing all on board. 'Hard Times' sees Chief O'Brien sentenced to twenty years imprisonment when he breaks an alien law. The punishment is administered by memory implants over a few hours, but the effects last much longer. 'Shattered Mirror' finds Jake lured into the mirror universe to help the Terrans who now have power over the evil alliance. 'The Muse' has Lwaxana Troi seek refuge from her husband on DS9, while Jake comes up with his best piece of writing thanks to the alien Onaya. 'For the Cause' sees the Federation decide to help the stricken Cardassians as they attempt to recover from the Klingon onslaught. 'To the Death' finds Sisko leading the Defiant into the Gamma Quadrant after rogue Jem'Hadar warriors attack the station. He soon finds that he needs to team up with another group of the fearsome warriors to save the galaxy. 'The Quickening' has Dax and Doctor Bashir discover a planet where the entire population are fated with premature deaths. The idealistic doctor decides he must find a cure, and is surprised when his efforts meet with resistance. 'Body Parts' sees Quark puts his remains up for sale when he discovers that he is dying. Meanwhile, Keiko is involved in an accident and has to have her unborn child beamed into Major Kira's body. Finally, in 'Broken Link', Odo finds himself suffering from a strange illness, forcing him to return to his home planet to seek a cure. Sisko is aware that it may be a trap set by the Founders to lure Odo home to face charges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Quality Season 24 Oct 2007
By Stuart
Ds9 kicks off in feature film style in season 4 with "The Way of The Warrior" parts 1 and 2 interlinked. This was really well done. Putting every character including almost every guest character into the hole thing and all the characters linking the story together. Worf from "The Next Generation" makes his first appearance as a main character in this episode all the way to the final in season 7. The battle sqequences and interlinking of all the alien races and characters make this 2 parter work so well. Following this are 2 excellent episodes "The Visitor" with Jake as an old man in the future reflecting on the past that took his father. A very emotional episode indeed and the actors can be very proud of their work. The writers too. "Hippocratic Oath" sees Miles and Julian captured by Jem Hadar and both characters are in disagreement as to how to deal with a complex situation. On disc 2 "Indiscretion follows" on and is a very unlightly combination of focusing on Kira and Du Kat being partners to rescue some long lost crash victims. It gets more complex as the episode progreses. Nice to see ds9 using outdoor locations like the desert which was really convincing of an alien crash site in this episode.
"Little Green Men" Is a very imaginative funny episode involving Quark, Nog and Rom somhow being transported back in time to Roswell in 1947 - You know this is the real truth about Roswell, the proof is in the episode. "Starship Down" put me on edge when I saw it first as it seems 1 or more of the main character might have died becuase of the devastation done to the Defiant by the Dominion. "Sword Of Kahless" sees Jadzia, Worf and Kor go in search for the legendary Sword only to have other parties purse it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! 6 Oct 2012

This is where the life on Deep Space 9 really takes on a defensive slant. With the introduction of Warf to the proceedings, the fight for the defence of the wormhole and the threat from the Dominion really gets going. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars DS9 Series 3,4,5 and TNG Series 3, 4 , 5 9 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I was an avid fan of the Original Series, TNG and Voyager, though preferrred TNG. Having watched some of the earlier episodes of DS9 when first broadcast I was less impressed though the arrival of the Dominion improved the interest factor.
Have recently begun buying the slimline versions of TNG and DS9, both of which are excellent value, enabling me to avoid watching terrestrial television altogether, I have increasingly enjoyed DS9, its characters and stories. Some stories are rather trite, but all Star Trek series were guilty of that. Nevertheless I now watch each evening and enjoy the experience, though attempting to ration my viewing is difficult. Both series provide real pleasure and even the puerile episodes are tolerated.
I can recommend thoroughly both series and I am considering buying Voyager, especially if the price continues to fall. As ever, Amazon delivery times are most impressive and usually ahead of the projected delivery dates.

5.0 out of 5 stars DS9's classic era 4 May 2010
The first three seasons of DS9 were excellent, especially season two, but this is where you'll find a real upsurge in quality that lasts to the end of the series. The classics in this season include "The Way of the Warrior", "The Visitor", "Little Green Men", "Our Man Bashir", "Homefront", "Paradise Lost", "Crossfire", "Hard Time", "To the Death" and "The Quickening".

Brilliant series all round, the best Star Trek series of them all.

For anyone interested in replacing seasons 1-4 (of the old larger case sets) which had a problem with the design of the cases causing centre hole becoming damaged, I want to assure you, absolutely, that these slimcase sets are absolutely identical in disc structure and menu design. The only difference is the image on the disks which is no real problem.

For anyone wanting to buy DS( as a complete series - simply get them in this format. The price is amazing when compared to the large cased first releases, I wish I had known they were going to make these as I could have saved a fortune.

4.0 out of 5 stars starting to live up to it's full potential 28 July 2007
After a less than stellar start to deep space nine with seasons 1 & 2,followed by the signs of a great show emerging in season 3,season 4 sees the show living up to its potential as it opens with a stunning 2 parter way of the warrior which introduces a certain klingon officer to the crew as well as escalate tensions to the breaking point between the federation & klingon empire, the season carries on going from strength to strength with some fine episodes delving into mirror universes, combining forces with sworn enemies love that never dies, & traitorous officers. By this point the cast were all comfortable with their respective roles & the special effects rather good, from action orientated episodes like to the death, way of the warrior, for the uniform to the more dramatic touching episodes like the visitor, rejoined, the quickening this series boasts some of the best stand alone episodes of deep space nine & at this low price its definitely worth a look.

Great series, still very enjoyable. Picture quality seems a bit average by today's standards but characters and stories retain their original appeal. Enjoy!
