    I can't really find much on it on Google, but I wonder when the writers decided that Sisko was the child of the Prophets? I mean, "Emissary" clearly indicates that he's special. How long did they know?

    Am I the only one who wanted Sisko to open the Orb of the Emissary, and "you've got the touch" by Stan Bush starts playing, and Peter Cullen's voice says "rise....Siskomus Prime!".

    No? Just me?

    :lol:

    I've been doing a DS9 rewatch, and I finished S01E12, "Battle Lines" and I was just curious about it.

    Probably when they were thinking about how to plot out season seven, but it certainly could have been sooner.

    I'm going to the Special Hell for thinking this, but how about using AI to put Nurse Chapel in the funeral scene from TWoK, and it's obvious that she's indicating to the person beside her that Spock had a huge hog?

    why have I never had spocklava before, and where the fuck can I get some because that has to be on shit a TOS geek has to eat before they die checklist. Yes, I clearly pale in comparison to other ST geeks as my fandom lacks the exuberance and compulsion of a truly autistic nerd. However, it does look really tasty and satisfies my special desert clause which allows me to eat sugar when I want to.

    Shorter seasons mean no filler episodes ... and while some filler episodes suck, some of them end up being great.

    I have to give Shatner this; virtually every project he's done since "Undiscovered Country" has made me go "huh...didn't see him going in that direction".

    I didn’t like “Dr. Bashir, Presume” as a premise, but I like the episode, if that makes sense.

    The only time I had an interest in watching DS9 was when I was rooming with one of my managers and friend at the paintball field because I had lost mi license due to running over the world's most evil crossing guard. It helped to have someone enjoy the war with, but it was also the end of the series. The beginning of DS9 actually bored me out of watching until I had someone to banter back and forth with about it. Even today I cannot get into binge watching it.

    I think the problem was I really was not interested in any of the factions but the federation. Ensign Ro had poisoned my on the Bajorans. I had actually seen her at a local convention and not only disliked the character, but the actress was standoffish and blew off the crowd like she was better than they were. However, if you ever have a chance to see Spice Williams who played the klingon woman in star trek 5 and was inside the guyver suit in the guyver, she is a fucking blast to chill with. Odo was a shitty shapeshifter IMO, so I always had a complaint with him as I was really into shapeshifting at the time. The kardashians were shitty enemies, but I did like the taylor. Worf getting some more action was fun, and I liked Obrien getting his break as a character of good importance. I did soften toward Quark in the war.

    I was able to get through Voyager for a couple of rewatches, but DS9 was a chore without someone else to watch with.

    Remember, Bashir was the slow kid at school until his parents had him modded, so his chattiness is possibly a holdover from the days when he just wanted to be friends with the other kids.

    That or he's hoping if he keeps asking other folk questions about themselves, they won't ask any questions about him and thus possibly catch him out about his augmentation.

    One of the first few novels, he's a passenger on a runabout Kira and Dax are piloting, and he comes up to ask a question and actually smells their hair.

    I was today years old when I realized that the doctor from Forbidden Planet was also Rojan in "By Any Other Name".

    No. Shorter seasons means filler seems even more egregious (See: Discovery Season 4's "The Galactic Barrier")
