Product Description

Amazon.ca

Only Kira Nerys would risk going to war over an earring. With the witty and wise second-season opener "The Homecoming," the writers started taking chances with the direction of Deep Space Nine--and the payoffs are immediate and far-reaching. It's the first episode in a complex trilogy involving the fate of the tenuous Bajoran Provisional Government, an extremist group called the Circle, and a legendary member of the resistance whom Sisko believes might be able to unite Bajor.

Continuing its blend of action, mystery, intergalactic politics, and religion, the second season gave prominent parts to Jadzia Dax ("Invasive Procedures," "Playing God," "Blood Oath"), Kira Nerys ("The Collaborator," in which Odo gives the first sign of his feelings toward her), the Cardassian Garak ("Cardassians"), Odo ("The Alternate"), Chief O'Brien ("Whispers," "Tribunal"), Commander Sisko ("Paradise"), and Quark ("Profit and Loss"), and Dr. Bashir developed relationships with both O'Brien ("Armageddon Game") and Garak ("The Wire").

Highlight episodes include the alternate-universe "Crossover," which pays homage to the original series' "Mirror, Mirror," and the two-part spotlight on the Maquis (first introduced in The Next Generation), a loose-knit organization of disenfranchised Federation colonists who resort to terrorist methods to provoke a new war between the Federation and the Cardassians. By the end of season 2, the only thing DS9 lacked was a really good villain. It got three for the price of one. Turns out the Dominion (first discovered in the underappreciated Ferengi spotlight "Rules of Acquisition") is a trinity of evil: the Founders, the Vorta, and the Jem'Hadar, those born-and-bred bad guys whose mission in life is to serve the Founders. The season-closer "The Jem'Hadar" is an intelligent, powerful episode that reveals all--and nothing--about the Dominion. --Kayla Rigney

Special Features

Station log: Supplemental. Totaling about 82 minutes, the extra features on DS9's second season are comparable to those on the first (plus you get six more episodes!). "New Frontiers: The Story of Deep Space Nine" looks at the characters and the second season's key developments. In the crew dossier, Terry Farrell talks about auditioning for the role of Jadzia Dax and how her character evolved (warning: spoilers of events taking place after season 2). Michael Westmore discusses alien makeup, and the 2- to 3-minute "Section 31 Hidden Files" (a.k.a. the world's easiest Easter eggs) spotlight art and sets in addition to certain episodes ("Crossover," "Shadowplay," "Blood Oath," "Cardassians," "Invasive Procedures," "The Circle"). --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars DS9 Season Two - A great second season! April 20 2003
Format:DVD
DS9 season two turned out many of the series greatest episodes and at the same time started to give ominous signs that portended what was to come with this outstanding and spectacular Star Trek series. The producers, while entrenched in the final season of Star Trek The Next Generation, preproduction on Star Trek Generations and preproduction on Star Trek Voyager brilliantly were able to write and produce one outstanding episode of Deep Space Nine after another. The second season is where the producers and everybody involved found their stride with the series resulting in absolutely amazing character interactions where everybody worked well off of one another. Of the many Star Trek variants, DS9 I believe as a whole is dramatically the most compelling due to its very nature of conflict between the main characters. It was truly fun watching DS9's first season, STNG's sixth season and then DS9's second season and STNG's seventh season all in the order they were originally aired, just as it was when they were all aired. It is too bad we won't initially be able to do that with DS9 & Voyager since we won't be seeing those sets until sometime next year. Of all the series that have passed, this is the one that I miss the most.
A brief synopsis of some of the "stand out" episodes of this great season:
The Homecoming, The Circle and The Siege - What can one say when they're treated to such an outstanding, well written and performed trilogy to begin a season of Star Trek, amazing! The thought process that went into this trilogy is well played out on the screen as our beloved characters find themselves deeply entrenched in the political situation on Bajor after Kira receives evidence of a famous Bajoran freedom fighter named Li Nalas still being held by the Cardassians.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Story Continues Jan. 17 2003
By shreeve
Format:DVD
Here we are then with DS9 series 2. If you saw the first, and were not that impressed, dont give up. DS9 has so much to offer the viewer. The first series had trouble finding its feet, but with each series it gets better and better. This series begins to introduce elements that will continue through to the conclusion of DS9. When you have finished with this DVD you will be gagging for season 3. The best trek, just got better.

5.0 out of 5 stars DS9 DVD: this trekker's dream Jan. 25 2003
Format:DVD
Everyone settles into their characters nicely this season. Quark begins to shine more, Garek develops (but doesn't mature), Dax -is too painful to talk about in any season, Kira is less annoying -she got a lot better over the years, and everyone is somehow shadowed by Avery Brooks (Sisko). To this day, he is probably my favorite actor. After seeing him in an interview, I thought he might be controllably schizophrenic because he acted so crazy (yelling odd, non-rhyme poetry and barking at the host - making those around him look a little uncomfortable), but when he's acting it's as though he believes every word, thought and nuance of his performance. He is a stellar actor. They ALL are. Even O'Brien get's an episode here and there and pulls it off. That's what makes this show so solid, not a weak link in the chain. Production and writing through to performance. It's a great collection of stories for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Trek ever... volume 2! Sept. 26 2003
Format:DVD
The series started off well in the first season, and continued that slow progression in the second. More or less, there was a seeming station-keeping feel to this season. TNG was coming to an end, and it seemed that the producers were all focusing their energies there. Many good episodes are to be had here, but they were still a season away from hitting their stride.
Again, Paramount has done a nice job of packaging this set. The extras a great. Although why they feel the need for a copyright proclaimation after EVERY SINGLE EXTRA is beyond me. Plus, it would be nice if they would either give the option of continuous play of the episodes, or at least put a chapter stop after the opening credits so that they could be skipped each time.
