Deep Space Nine is often seen as that series about the war. But, in fact, the Dominion War didn't really begin until the end of the fifth season. Squadrons of insect-like Dominion ships pouring out of the wormhole was the harbinger of the greatness and danger to come, and to a unique approach to Star Trek storytelling. The sixth season of DS9 was to begin not only with an unprecedented six-episode arc, but also with the scattering of our heroes and the loss of the space station whose very name is in the title of the show.

In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing kick off a new series of episodes that will take you through the Season Six opener. We begin with the finale of Season Five, "Call to Arms," an episode that is not a cliffhanger in the traditional Star Trek sense but certainly leaves fans on the edge of their seats.
