The entire sixth season of this spin-off series. In 'A Time to Stand', it is three months after the events of the fifth season finale (where Sisko and the crew left DS9 in the hands of the Cardassians and Dominion), and Starfleet has been taking a battering in the war. Sisko has been removed from command of the Defiant, but his new mission will send him deep into enemy space to destroy the source of Ketrace White, the drug that the Jem'Hadar are reliant upon. In 'Rocks and Shoals', Sisko and his team are stranded deep in Cardassian space without weapons or warp drive, and they are forced to crash-land on a planet that is also host to a platoon of fearsome Jem'Hadar warriors. Sisko must decide whether to face the warriors or make a deal with their treacherous commander. In 'Sons and Daughters', Worf resumes his position on General Martok's ship and discovers that his son is also on board. Worf discovers that Alexander is not a particularly proficient warrior. In 'Behind the Lines', the Cardassians discover that they can dismantle the minefield around the wormhole so Kira's resistance cell have to move fast. However, she begins to question Odo's loyalty to the cause after the appearance on the station of a female shapeshifter. In 'Favor the Bold' (sic) and 'Sacrifice of Angels', a two part story, Sisko is frustrated by the course of the war and decides to implement a plan to retake DS9, knowing that the Cardassians and Dominion are close to dismantling the mine-field guarding the wormhole. As the battle rages, the Federation hope for support from the non-committal Klingons. On the station, Rom faces execution for being a traitor so Kira, Jake and Quark must act against the occupying forces, while Odo is beginning to have second thoughts about joining the Great Link. Worf and Dax finally get the chance to tie the knot in 'You Are Cordially Invited', but their inherent differences may bring about a cancellation. Meanwhile Bashir and O'Brien get more than they bargained for when they accompany Sisko and General Martok on Worf's stag-do. In 'Resurrection', a mirror universe incarnation of Vedek Bareil comes to the station, and Kira finds herself falling in love with him all over again. But his hidden agenda could have serious repercussions for Bajorans in both universes. In 'Statistical Probabilities', a group of genetically advanced humans arrive on the station, and their superior powers of perception uncover a new Dominion plot and a darker, more worrying future for the Federation. In 'The Magnificent Ferengi', Quark leaves his cowardice behind when he leads a group of unlikely Ferengi heroes on a mission to Empek Nor to rescue his mother from a unit of Jem'Hadar. In 'Waltz', Sisko finds himself at the mercy of the now-deranged Gul Dukat when he crash lands en route to a war trial. 'Who Mourns for Morn?' sees Quark's bar regulars gathering to pay their respects to the late Morn, only to learn that he had a hidden fortune stashed away. In 'One Little Ship', Dax, O'Brien and Bashir are miniaturised to the size of insects by a spatial anomaly. They then have to battle to regain the Defiant from the invading Dominion. 'Far Beyond the Stars' sees Sisko taken ill. In his mind he becomes a science fiction writer in 1950s New York, struggling to come to terms with racial discrimination. In 'Honor Among Thieves', O'Brien discovers a plot to assassinate a Klingon Ambassador when he goes undercover, but if he attempts to prevent the killing he will only prompt another murder. 'Change of Heart' sees Worf forced to make a difficult decision when his wife, Dax, is badly wounded while they are on a mission together. If Worf does not leave Dax to complete his assignation, thousands will perish. However, if he leaves Dax alone she will die from her injuries. In 'Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night', Kira uses one of the Orbs of the Prophets to journey back in time after Gul Dukat taunts her on the anniversary of her late mother's birth. She soon discovers some unpleasant truths relating to her family. 'Inquisition' sees Doctor Bashir arrested under suspicion of spying for the Dominion. The case against him seems concrete when his service records are scrutinised, and even Sisko begins to have his doubts about Bashir's integrity. '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. In 'The Reckoning', Sisko discovers his name engraved on a 3,000-year-old Bajoran stone tablet. Against his better judgement, he removes the sacred relic, unleashing terrible forces which threaten not only Sisko's existence, but also that of his crew and son. 'Valiant' sees Jake and Nog trapped behind enemy lines when they are picked up by a Starfleet warship. Unfortunately, the crew consists entirely of cadets on a training mission. The vessel's young captain soon reveals a kamikazi streak when he announces that he intends his ship to mount a suicide attack on a Dominion battleship. In 'Profit and Lace', Grand Nagus Zek shocks the Ferengi Alliance when he decrees that female Ferengis may now wear clothes. Zek is quickly deposed by his enemies, forcing Quark to resort to desperate measures to save his friend from liquidation. 'Time's Orphan' sees a family jaunt to a nearby planet turning into a disaster for Miles O'Brien and wife Keiko when their eight-year-old daughter, Molly, falls through a temporal gateway to the past. She re-emerges as a rebellious teenager who has spent the last ten years alone on the planet. In 'The Sound of Her Voice', the Defiant makes contact with Julia, a Starfleet Officer stranded on a distant planet. As they race to her aid, Julia tells them that the planet's poisonous atmosphere is slowly killing her. 'Tears of the Prophets' sees Sisko ignoring the advice of the Prophets and leaving the station to lead an invasion of Cardassia. DS9 is left vulnerable to attack by Gul Dukat, who is out to wreak a bitter revenge.
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. This meant no familial camaraderie, squeaky-clean Federation diplomacy or beige décor. Instead they wanted interpersonal 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 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The season continues with episodes of the highest calibre with marriage in `you are concordantly invited', faked death in who `mourns for morn', survival with your worst enemy in `waltz', the fantastic `beyond the stars', the secret sub division of the federation in `inquisition', unprepared glory hungry cadets in `valiant' & the exciting & heart breaking season finale `tears of the prophets'.
This season showcases the finest of ds9 & perhaps of any star trek show. It's worth every penny you pay for it particularly at this low price, snap it up.
With the battle over the station readjusted to life on the station along with a captured Dukat as an emotional wreck after the death of his daughter, who later on promises revenge on Sisko for destroying his chance of power.
Quark also has a few adventures such as leading an all ferengi force to get his mother back and ends up claiming his mother, 2 dead dominion soliders and a vorta for starfleet in an amazing twist! As well as later on when Quark becomes a woman to stop a powerful FCA liquidator from becoming the Grand Nagus, because of his return to power as a reward for rescuing Zek's girlfriend and Quark's mother.
The Romulans also enter the war against the Dominion because of an engineered plot by Sisko and Garak which works brilliantly. At the end of the season though Dukat finally extracts revenge on Sisko by turning to a Bajoran religion.
