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 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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars DS9 Gets Better In Sophmore Year Jan. 20 2003
Format:DVD
Star Trek DS9: The Second Season. We're introduced to the Dominion when Quark tries to establish a Ferangi trading aggrement in the Gamma Quadrant and then the Jem'Hadar in the season ending cliffhanger. The episodes were better this year when the series seperated itself and tried to be less like The Next Generation and established its own identity. Although future seasons were better than this, a few of my favorite series episodes: notably Rivals (with The Princess Bride's Chris Sarandon) are in this season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have ST: DS9 July 28 2012
By R3aLiTY_bYt3s TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
No self-respecting sci-fi fan and certainly no self-respecting Trekker (or Trekkie*) can NOT have this series in her/his collection.
(*the amazing Season 5, Episode 6: Trial and Tribble-ations).

This is a fairly quiet season over all; one focusing more on relationships, Bajor (and it's spirituality), and the beginning of contact and understanding about the Dominion and it's representatives (although the questions begin to really pile up).

Some of my favourite episodes are Whispers (O'Brien is being treated weird by everyone and is kept out of vital parts of the station which means, of course, he can't do his job), Rules of Acquisition (featuring a *clothed!!!* Ferengi female who... earns profit!), Crossover (Bashir and Kira find themselves in an alternate universe), and Blood Oath (Jadzia must honour a promise Curzon made to Klingon warriors).

Bashir saves the lives of several people on the station and elsewhere, and Odo remains an incredibly grouchy and tortured character throughout this season. Unfortunately, Kai Winn appears in several episodes and I must say she is one of my all-time least favourite characters and the actor who plays Kai Winn is one of my least favourite actors (too wooden in whatever she's in, and Winn is such a creep).

This season (and series) rank near the top of my sci-fi lists for entertainment, excitement, and interesting storytelling.

3.0 out of 5 stars DS9's weakest season, but still worth buying Feb. 6 2003
Format:DVD
This season included some great episodes. It starts out with a riveting three-part story about Bajoran society and politics (Homecoming, Circle, Siege) which further develops the Bajoran characters on the show. Invasive Procedures delivers suspense, Armageddon Game is an intriguing look at biological weapons with a subtle built-in irony. Profit and Loss has Quark moving profit down on the priority list (for once) and shows another aspect of Quark.
The best of the set, however, has to be Whispers. An artfully constructed conspiracy story is often underrated and forgotten when fans make top-10 lists, Whispers was the most atypical trek episode that had been produced up to this point. Told in flashback with voice-over narration, Chief O'Brien recalls the steps which caused him to suspect a massive conspiracy. The true power of the episode, though, is in the journey and in a truly inspired twist at the end. The use of subjective point of view filtered through O'Brien keeps the viewer unprepared for what awaits. The set should be purchased because of this very episode.
There are also many episodes that begin long-lasting storylines. The Wire is a mind-bending episode dealing with Garak's sordid past. It also set up one of the best story arcs on the show that would blossom in the following season. The arrival of the Maquis was an infinitely important Trek development, for it not only began a storyline which lasted for several seasons, but also contributed storylines to TNG and made Voyager possible. Crossover brought back the mirror universe from the original series and began a storyline that would continue well into the sixth season. The most important, though, has to be contact with the Jem'Hadar, signalling a metamorphosis in the series and beginning the journey to the show's destiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Complex Season! Feb. 4 2003
Format:DVD
This was the season that won me over to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! I became a "Niner" (subset of Star Trek fans) after I watched the repeat airing of the season finale "The Jem'Hadar". I had never seen anything like it on TV before. "The Jem'Hadar" featured an intriguing "who are they?" story about the fearsome Jem'Hadar - the soldier race of the Dominion, coupled with the grandest space battle (at that time) that I had ever seen on TV. Sure, the space battles would improve in later seasons, as would the characters and writing, but it showed me enough to keep me on board.
Later on I would see the remarkable three-part season opener - commonly referred to as "The Circle Trilogy" - along with other gems like "Blood Oath" (which brought back three of the original Star Trek's best Klingons: Kor, Kang and Koloth), "The Maquis, Parts I & II" (for better or worse, this is where Voyager began), "The Wire" (one of the best Garak stories) and "Crossover" (DS9's first visit to the classic Mirror Universe).
This was the year that Ira Steven Behr, Peter Allan Fields, Robert Hewitt Wolfe and James Crocker started to fully realize what the Dominion was and what it would later become. This quadrant-spanning empire was first mentioned during the first season, but this is where the ongoing story arc truly started. If you like SF that is daring, vivid and thoroughly complex, DS9 is the series for you.
*A special note: May God bless the families of the seven brave astronauts who died on board the space shuttle Columbia on February 1, 2003. And may He forever hold them in His warm embrace.*
