I was born in Star Trek's "Golden Year" of 1994. Voyager premiered, DS9 was still goin' strong, Generations had come out in theatres, I guess that's why me and friends are Trekkies whether they admit it or not.
It's too bad broadcasters hate DS9. It's the series I've seen the least of, and is the one I want to see the most. Even when they still did run it, it was always the first show to be dropped or moved to an obscure time slot when something new came along. The last time I saw it was years ago on Spike. It started at 2 AM- far longer than I was used to staying up at the time. The commercials were annoying- literally half of them were advertising porn videos. I don't even remember what episode it was. I can't buy it on DVD, either, because Trek DVD prices are insane.
I don't know how to do that. Besides, the only times I ever hear people talk about torrents is when they're complaining about them in some way, so I'm a bit iffy on it.
It's too bad, really. The only Trek shows currently airing around here that I know of are TNG on BBC America and TOS on a local channel. I, of course, have no way of knowing if it or any other Trek series is on any other local stations elsewhere.
I have just realised I am older than this show and my favourite, Voyager! I loved DS9 mainly from the 3rd season. It was something different in the Trek Universe and they made it work. Excellent as always!!
Yeah one the Defiant was introduced to the show that made Deep Space Nine more interesting. It was getting boring for the crew to do everything either by runabout or stay near the station. Once Deep Space Nine had a ship with teeth and a cloaking device it made the show much more entertaining.
I was 2 years old when Star Trek Deep Space Nine started up but I watched it from its first episode Emissary because of Star Trek The Next Generation and Chief O'Brein was on Deep Space Nine. I was already a Big fan of Star Trek before the age of one because of the Star Trek The Motion Picture and Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan soundtrack.
Yeah. I remember TOS 25th anniversary. In the 90s I was lucky to have american and canadian friends that send me monthly a VHS tape with TNG/DS9 episodes (and later VOY), complete with the TV spececial for the anniversary, the launching of a new show, the end of THG and so forth. Good ol' times...
