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 continue their series that takes you through the Season Six opener. This time around we go bald … we mean bold … and discuss Sisko’s plan to retake the Station, the father-daughter relationship between Dukat and Ziyal, Kira’s perfect streak of shutting down Damar, Odo shacking up with the Female Changeling, Ferengi who care, Morn’s mother, and much more.
