  • The first part of an excellent trilogy sees Kira risk life and limb to rescue a Bajoran war hero from Cardassia...perhaps the last chance to unite her people?

    Season two of DS9 kicks off with the first of an excellent trilogy. Whilst DS9's first season was a mixed bag, it went out with on a spectacular high that saw the writers discover DS9's true strengths. In short, DS9 had found its voice. Of course, the dark, complex political storylines prove baffling to many viewers, who were simply unaccustomed to such stories on a Star Trek series. But for now, DS9 seemed to be on a roll...

    This is a slow-burning but rewarding season opener, filled with great characterisation, a sparkling script and some fascinating political intrigue. The ending is rather abrupt but that's a small complaint in an otherwise superlative season premiere.
