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 RigneySee all Product Description

(*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.
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.Read more ›
