Deep Space Nine's sixth season began ambitiously with a six-part story arc devoted to the Dominion War. This was a brave move in many ways, but a sensible one too. Whereas other sci-fi shows wouldn't commit to showing the impact of war (e.g., Babylon 5), here there were numerous visible sacrifices. Characters were frequently kidnapped and held prisoner, allowing screen time for other members of the ever-growing cast (at its peak there were as many as 18 individuals with speaking roles per episode). This year also introduced the idea of Starfleet Intelligence and its sinister Section 31; alliances were built only to crumble almost immediately; Sisko led a suicide mission and at long last his destiny as the Emissary took a serious turn.

Amid all this sturm und drang the writers felt it necessary to inject some levity. In fact, there was so much comedic sidetracking this year it actually seemed as if they were afraid of the series' dark tone. Witness: Quark undergoing a temporary sex change, leading a Magnificent Seven-style band of Ferengi (with a cameo from Iggy Pop), Morn's nonspeaking character being sorely missed, the blend of Troi and Guinan into '60s crooner Vic Fontaine, and, in one fan favorite episode ("Far Beyond the Stars"), Sisko having visions of himself and the crew as 1950s staff writers on pulp magazine Incredible Tales. There were also cute reconciliations among Worf's extended family (leading to Trek's first cast wedding), and even the revelation of Bashir's genetically enhanced origins quickly became a subject for easy jokes.

Any of these events would have been satisfactorily cute if the war had ended and the show had moved on. But it confused the viewer when every so often the battle would be rejoined mid-episode. The clinching proof that no grand design was really at work was in the sudden exit of Dax. Despite all the jarring humor scattered about after the strong opening, the show seemed unable to avoid reverting to shock tactics for its finale. All of which hardly made the promised final year seem a particularly enticing prospect. --Paul Tonks

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Television, Sci-Fi Or Otherwise Feb. 13 2004
Format:DVD
The Sixth Season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine truly goes where no Star Trek has gone before. At the conclusion of Season 5, we see half of the crew kicked off of the station while the other half must learn to deal with Gul Dukat, the series main villian. The resulting six episode War Arc truly shows the greatness of the show, exploring all of the different angles of the war. One of the more exceptional shows in the Arc is the third episode, "Sons and Daughters", which examines the different angles that arise between Worf and his son, and the intruging interchange when Dukat brings his daughter to the station, and Kira is forced to deal with Dukat not as a head of state, but as a father. For you action lovers, the arc concludes with the two part "Favor The Bold" and "Sacrifice Of Angels"; but the most gripping moment is seeing Dukat shed a tear when he loses the station, and goes insane when his daughter is killed by his mentee, Damar. The story of Dukat's insanity continues in "Waltz", a "two" man show where Sisko and Ducat must contend with each other...and Ducat's personal demons. In "The Pale Moonlight", DS9 pushes where TNG has never pushed the enevelope, asking how far will Starfleet go to win the war. When the chips are down, is the Federation really as coniving as the Romulans or Cardassians? Sisko is forced to make a deal with the devil to save the Alpha Quadrant, but in the process must betray others to do it. In "Far Beyond The Stars", probably one of the most amazing Trek shows ever, we see the cast in 1960's America, makeup off and complete with racism and hatred. Benny Russell (Sisko) struggles to chase his dreams, while society tries to keep him down. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of DS9! July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a must have season for DS9 fans! The two-parter "Favor the Bold" and "Sacrifice of Angels" are definately the best of the lot. Other good offerings include "You are Coordially Invited," "One Little Ship," "Valiant," and "Tears of the Prophets."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Star Trek Franchise's Finest Season Feb. 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I don't use those words lightly. The 6th year of Deep Space Nine is *the* best season of TV episodes Trek has ever seen. Other reviewers have already gone into far more depth than I could ever hope to go on the reasons for this. I'm just posting this review so my rating of the DVD set will be registered.
If you are a sci-fi buff, you owe it to yourself to buy this, though it is not recommended until one has seen Seasons 3,4, & 5, as those provide a vital build up to the epic developments in year 6 - mainly, the outbreak of the Dominion War, which is the first and only time a prolonged interstellar war is (well) portrayed in the Trek universe.

The sixth season, in so many ways, was one of DS9's most astonishing and brilliant seasons, yet it also brought about the end of one of the shows most beloved characters. In an unprecedented move in Star Trek, the season begins with an arc that is altogether some of the most dazzling Trek to ever grace the small screen.
From the commencement of the season, it is quite evident that the season is going to be big in so many ways. From the war with the Dominion to many of the payoff's between the characters that have, in some cases, been building since the first season. Worf and Jadzia's marriage, Odo and Kira finally getting together and Dukat's turn for even the worst are just "some" of the season's highlights.
I stand by my opinion that Terry Farrell's decision to leave the show to do a sitcom that she was later "released" from stands right up there with Denise Crosby's decision to leave STNG, "not too smart!"
As is the usual, the writing, directing and performances by all for this continuation on the saga that is Deep Space Nine are all extraordinary!
A brief synopsis of the more outstanding episodes of the season:
A Time to Stand to Sacrifice of Angels - In this brilliant and unprecedented six episode arc the shows producers takes us from where the fifth season concluded through many of the machinations of the initial stages of the war with the Dominion. Integral to these first six episodes is some the series most extraordinary writing, directing and acting that all lend greatly to this six episode arc being tops among all of the Star Trek episodes ever, from any of the series.
You Are Cordially Invited - Despite the war still raging, in this great episode, we see Star Trek's first Klingon wedding between Worf and Jadzia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worf's Wedding and Benny Russel Nov. 9 2003
Format:DVD
The highlights of this one are Worf's marriage to Dax. It was great to see him get together with someone other than Counselor Troi from Next Generation. Though short lived; it made the series a better one. In DS9 we had the O'Brien's, Odo and Kira and now Worf/Dax. It's a contrast to Next Generation, which didn't show a lot of depth in the interpersonal relationships.
Far Beyond the Stars takes Sisko to another dimension where he is a science fiction writer facing racism in the 50's. In this one he is the creator of a Deep Space Nine saga. The editor won't publish it. Not only will the editor not publish his story but he won't consider any of his work good enough for publication. This tale is by far the most poignant and heart wrenching of all the series.
As usual the set is light on extras, but the episodes more than make up for it. If Paramount ever issues this seven season set as one unit; (like the UK Borg Box of seven seasons of Next Gen) it should have a lot more in the way of episode commentary and interviews.
For what you are paying; a lot more in the extras could have been produced for such a great series. I still have to give it five stars. The episodes surpass the final ones in the last season.
