I just came across this phrase in the book I’m reading for class:
“Kate Mulgrew as the captain of Voyager in Deep Space Nine.”
DEEP SPACE NINE
DEEP SPACE NINE
Do you need some silly Deep Space Nine valentines? Yes, you do.
It’s like being in elementary school again.
Super Bowl Sunday. The one day out of the year when I pretend to understand sports. Go Niners!
“I missed you. I missed you so much.”
The poll is on the front page of startrek.com, on the right hand side, just scroll down a little.
…Cause if they skip DS9 now, they’ll skip it forever.
DS9 needs to be done next. Each show needs to be done in it’s release order. Otherwise, a cluster of fans will get the shaft.
They’ve done TOS. Now TNG. DS9 must be next. Then VGR. Then and only then ENT.
DS9 first, folks. Or the Niners will get the perma-shaft. Cause we always have!
I wish tumblr would spend the amount of effort psychoanalyzing Gul Dukat that it spends on Loki.
Dukat has long since passed any chance of moral redemption from episode one of Deep Space Nine. And even though we know he has no chance of being a good man, we spend entire episodes following him. We sympathize with him, we cry for him, we even root for him occasionally. We can’t even explain it, because even at his best he’s a huge threat to the protagonists. But he’s a truly terrible man who is very difficult not to love.
Dukat is one of my favourite tragic villains because, in the bad man, you can see the wreckage of the good man, and the tug of his surviving good impulses, which will never be strong enough to draw him back from his desperate need for power and approval.
I love how Dax gets incredulously amused at the ferengi when they’re all gross and misogynistic because she knows that they’ll never get a piece of that
I love how Kira gets incredulously angry with the ferengi when they’re all gross and misogynistic because she knows that they’ll never get a piece of that
I’d watch it.
I absolutely adore Benjamin Sisko’s unabashed love for his son.
This episode hurts so much.
Why would you post something like this?
“Odo’s line, ‘I don’t do faces very well,’ triggers the eternal query, ‘Why not?’ Since the writers hadn’t pinned down a definitive answer, Rene Auberjonois devised one of his own. ‘If there’s something for Odo to replicate that has a prototype, like a rat or a knapsack or a chair, he can replicate it exactly,’ says the actor. ‘But because he is searching for his identity, even beyond the fact that by third season he knows where he comes from, he cannot create a face for himself. It’s an identity problem for Odo, because he is a character who believes, in the strictest sense of the word, in telling the truth. And I believe he could make a face like Paul Newman or Quark, but he can’t create something that he doesn’t understand, and he doesn’t understand himself yet.’”
