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 C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing conclude their series that takes you through the Season Six opener. For our final look at the arc, we geek out about spaceship battles … and then remember that there’s a bunch of character stuff going on. So we put the toys away and take a look at the resolution to Odo’s story, Quark’s unexpected nobility, Dukat’s overconfidence, his final moments with Ziyal, and explain why we want Sisko in charge … of our days … and our nights.
