Video Of The Day: Captain Sisko Yelling Compilation April 21, 2011

by Staff , Filed under: DS9,Humor,Viral Video/Mashup/Images , trackback

Star Trek’s 3rd series Deep Space Nine was led by the very serious Captain Benjamin Sisko. Avery Brooks brought an intensity to his Sisko that fit the shows tone, but often involved raising his voice. Now a new video has compiled some great moments in Sisko yelling. Watch it below


Captain Sisko yells at people

This compilation was just uploaded to YouTube by KickintheHeadComic.

TrekMovie loves The Sisko, WHAT ABOUT YOU!?!


1. Bucky - April 21, 2011

I honestly believe Avery Brooks was the closest Captain on Trek who had the same tone to Shatner. And it works for Star Trek, because it all goes back to Shatner. I think Brooks ended up yelling even more as the series went on. But you can pull that off on Trek anyway.

2. Gorandius - April 21, 2011

It is not real, It’s a FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!

3. Jeyl - April 21, 2011

He doesn’t just yell, he yells in like 12 different of ways. He has a presence that can turn a Tholian’s crystalline skin into jelly. Please, don’t hurt me!

4. gingerly - April 21, 2011




Yes, *haha* closest to the Shat. He even has the pauses….and fantastic enunciation.

5. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - April 21, 2011

The best scene in DS9 was when Sisko met Capt Kirk. Seeing those to together was just amazing. Avery Brooks was pretty close to Kirk in a lot of ways. That is why Ds9 was such hit. But the real reason is because.
He is the Sisko.

6. Schultz - April 21, 2011

Sisko/Brooks = obercool. So was von.

#1 (bucky): absolutely agree.

7. Commander Eddyman - April 21, 2011

@5 – Imagine if they’d gotten into a shouting match in that episode. There’s be no Star Trek after that episode because the studio would have melted from the awesome.

8. Simon - April 21, 2011

Hmm. He missed the scene at the climax of “Sacrifice of Angels” when Sisko yelled “You’re damned right I’m adversarial! You have no right to interfere with my life!!!” then a few lines later “I need a miracle! Bajor needs a miracle! Stop! Those! Ships!!!”

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – the finest *character* based STAR TREK series.

9. DeafPoet - April 21, 2011

I could watch Sisko tear strips of mother-effers all day. Dude was badass.

10. moauvian waoul- aka: seymour hiney - April 21, 2011

Closest to Kirk.
Ergo, second only to the man himself.

11. jas_montreal - April 21, 2011

Deep Space Nine >>>> The rest of Star trek.

12. Spectre7 - April 21, 2011

Sisko is awesome but when Picard yells, he projects even more dominance then Sisko does and really puts people in their place!

13. Reign1701A - April 21, 2011

Love Sisko. DS9 had some heavy stuff going on, and Avery Brooks portrayed Sisko with great dramatic weight to counter.

14. Max - April 21, 2011

Sisko yelled at his staff in almost every episode. He’s great.

The best one is to Bashir in “Cardassians”. “Don’t apologize, Doctor. It was the highlight of my day. Don’t do it again.”

15. Pensive's Wetness - April 21, 2011

*claps* Awesome!

16. gatetrek - April 21, 2011

What a great actor! I knew the character of Sisko was passionate but I never realized he was this passionate! Laughed quite a few times – what an awesome show!

17. VZX - April 21, 2011


I’ll go one further:

DS9>>>>>>All of television.

18. Harry Ballz - April 21, 2011

Avery Brooks is such a limited actor. In practically everything he does, he either screams his lines in feigned anger or speaks them in a soft voice. Gawd, I hate it when limited talent is allowed to perform in front of the camera!


19. moauvian waoul- aka: seymour hiney - April 21, 2011

Unlike that cardboard cut-out Picard. He brought the full range of the emotional spectrum every week.

20. Robogeek - April 21, 2011


His awesomeness knows no bounds, and neither does Brooks’ talent as an actor. His work in “Far Beyond the Stars” and “The Visitor” alone rank as perhaps the greatest performances ever in any incarnation of Star Trek.

21. the captain - April 21, 2011

You mean third LIVE-ACTION series. Let’s not forget the Animated Series.

22. Red Dead Ryan - April 21, 2011


Sorry, Harry. You’re in the minority, though you’re definitely entitled to your own opinions!


Agreed! I will add “In The Pale Moonlight”, “The Seige Of AR-558″ and “Tears Of The Prophets” too.


“Deep Space Nine” is my favorite of the Trek series. It did it all, from light Ferengi episodes to stories about war and its consequences. It blended the best aspects of TOS and TNG while adding it’s own ingredients, such as religion, a long war, and political intrigue. Plus, the Defiant rocks!

23. sean - April 21, 2011


Harry, you are out of your ever-lovin’ mind! Avery Brooks can turn crap into gold. Dude is an *amazing* actor. Probably the most talented Trek actor next to Stewart.

24. Harry Ballz - April 21, 2011

Look, to each their own, but face it, Brooks hasn’t done anything since Deep Space Nine. People aren’t stupid. they realize the man brings NOTHING to the screen. That’s why he isn’t getting any jobs. A few reasonable bits of “acting” on screen do not an actor make! Anybody can pull off a performance if you do enough takes! Just look at Tom Cruise. Hopeless.

25. Bucky - April 22, 2011

^ On the whole, performances in Star Trek are not meant, nor are they ever, really very subtle. The most subtle performance we got on the show were probably Marc Alimo and Andrew Robinoson and even they had their giant “KKAAAAHHHNNNN!!!” screaming moments. Star Trek is not a series that, on the actors side, is not meant to be quiet. It’s loud, it’s rowdy, even Patrick Stewart who everyone brings up as being restrained at least store a strip off of SOMEBODY once every five episodes or so. Which is why Brooks was probably the closest to Shatner. He even had some random pauses worked in there too.

26. Bucky - April 22, 2011

When doing a sci-fi allegory, you generally play to the cheap seats so people get the point.

27. Lukas Ketner - April 22, 2011

Can someone please make mashups of all the other captains yelling? Maybe we can all vote on the angriest?

Worf does not count, even though he made captain eventually. It would be over before it started.

28. ironhyde - April 22, 2011

Just seeing clips of Avery Brooks’ performances strung together like that, stirs me. What an actor! What a character! He could be a friendly, amiable man when it suited the situation, and other times, he could blow you away. Fantastic.

29. Dan - April 22, 2011

@3:09: ‘… EVIDENCE!!!’

30. Cap'n Calhoun - April 22, 2011

Brilliant. I miss DS9…

31. CmdrR - April 22, 2011

And they let him sing, too.

32. Sebastian - April 22, 2011


DS9 is still my favorite of the post-TOS shows….

33. Josh - April 22, 2011

LOVED him singing “The Best Is Yet To Come”

34. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - April 22, 2011

Loved Capt Sisko. He was close to Kirk. He could be a Diplomat like Kirk. Or go in Phasers Firing like Kirk. He could fight like Kirk and be a Lover Like Kirk. But. Kirk was the master of all. Sisko was a good Student.

35. Jo Jo - April 22, 2011

So friggin’ awesome :)
Best Captain, best series.

36. Colonel West - April 22, 2011


Eh Harry, hate to break it to you dude but he’s a tenured Professor of theatre at Rutgers for over 30 years; has been critically acclaimed for his theatre work in Death Of a Salesman, Paul Robeson and several of the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s productions; directed in Londons west end and gigged and released several jazz albums. Not bad for a man of 62 in semi retirement wouldn’t you think? Kind of contradicting your own point with the Tom Cruise example really!

37. Shaun - April 22, 2011

avery brooks as benjamin lafayette sisko is simply put, my favorite character in all of star trek. before i saw “the visitor,” i had never been moved to tears by a television episode. his impact on me was equalled in “far beyond the stars.” brooks is such a cool cat! he’s even a tenured professor at rutgers. love him!

38. drew - April 22, 2011

Love it!!!!

39. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - April 22, 2011

After seeeing that im going to watch DS9 from beginning to end over the next few months! LOVE ME SOME SISCO!! I call for Deep Space 9 movie!!

40. Captain Dunsel - April 22, 2011

Love the Sisko. And Brooks shows excellent range, from the intense compilation here, to the emotive connectivity of “The Visitor” episode. A wonderful talented man and we are better for having him around. Also check him out opposite Ed Norton in American History X.

41. moauvian waoul- aka: seymour hiney - April 22, 2011

Just a flash of his teeth would’ve sent me scramblin’ for the nearest airlock.

42. They call me Stasiu - April 22, 2011

Odo as ump was a nice way to wrap it up!

43. Phil - April 22, 2011

@24. Active in theater, music and teaching. Tons of recognition for his work. Are we talking about the same Avery Brooks here?

44. Phil - April 22, 2011

Now that I think about it, Avery Brooks would be a wonderful addition to the next movie in some form or another.

45. Vultan - April 22, 2011

That’s some bad opinion, Harry.

46. CaptainDonovin - April 22, 2011

That was awesome, I miss DS9.

47. Kempec - April 22, 2011

Yes, I think that the character Sisko had it all…Manners when he needed them, as well as being a badass!!! The actor who portrayed him was marvelous!!! You need both a well developed character and an awesome actor to make an unforgettable Captain like Sisko. He is my favorite Captain out of all Trek incarnations. I haven’t read any of the ongoing DS9 based novels but I would love to see some kind of continuation of the series, either as a movie or something else…

48. Damian - April 22, 2011

DS9 definitly took the most risks of all the spin-offs. Also, of all the spin-offs, this is the one that has the most unique fans (meaning, there are many who are fans of just DS9 and not necessarily other Star Trek shows). I think part of that was the fact that they had a number of different writers. Sure, Ronald Moore and Ira Steven Behr (among a few others) exercised a lot of their own vision in DS9, but it had a huge amount of writers compared to the other spin-offs.

I thought Avery Brooks was great. He had a deadly seriousness about him and a dry wit. From the first episode when he conned Quark into staying on the station and Odo saying “You know at first, I didn’t think I was going to like him.”

It took about a year for it to catch on for me. But I stuck with it and was glad I did. I thought of all the villains, the Dominion was one of the best. Just their desire to impose their order on the galaxy, the Jem’Hadar, the Vorta. All great stuff.

49. Damian - April 22, 2011

46–If you get a chance, the DS9 relaunch novels have some great stories. Unfortunately DS9 will never reappear on TV again, but the novels help fill that void.

50. Captain Ransom - April 22, 2011


since when did worf make captain? in nemesis he was lt. cmmdr. that was the last we saw him.

sisko is a rageaholic. he would probably be sued today by feminists because he makes them feel ‘uncomfrotable’ in the workplace. he has a mustache and goatee so he looks intimidating and therefore women feel harassed. no joke i have actually heard these things.

51. Admonisher - April 22, 2011

DS9 is my favorite Trek, and Brooks my favorite captain. And yes, he’s led quite an active career post-DS9 … constant, high-profile film and television work is a shallow and inaccurate measure of an actor.

I respectfully disagree with anyone who recommends the DS9 relaunch novels, by the way. I just thought the whole project was misguided … and what’s happening with Sisko’s character right now is awful. IMHO, as always.

52. Maj - April 22, 2011

Overall, the best produced, most consistent Star Trek series, had to have been Deep Space Nine.

53. devonp - April 22, 2011

I too feel that you are alone in your assessment Harry, DS9 is my hands down favorite Trek series and Avery Brooks was superb as Captain Benjamin Lafayette Sisko. Just his representation as a single father alone was incredible & unequalled! A great & loyal friend to Jadzia & others. A gentleman: adoring & devoted husband to both Jennifer & Kassidy Yates. Respecting & tolerant of others, playing the role of Bajor’s Emissary, something he didn’t feel comfortable with at first but grew into.
Commanding in every sense of the word, handling such strong willed characters as Kira Nerys,Worf, Odo, etc. Not afraid to take risks & do what he felt necessary to protect DS9,Bajor & the Quadrant. Hi s performances in “The Visitor”, “Far Beyond The Stars”, & “In the Pale Moonlight” are just a smidgeon of Fantastic Sisko/Brooks episodes! Love him, Love Sisko, Love DS9!!!!

54. Rocket Scientist - April 22, 2011

Brooks’ Sisko rocks. That is all.

55. Harry Ballz - April 22, 2011

Look, I’m not trying to stir up trouble or get people upset. I just find Brooks to be mediocre at best. It’s like one’s taste in music. All subjective. To each their own.

56. I'm Dead Jim! - April 22, 2011

I somewhat agree with you, Harry. I’ve never been that moved while watching him but when you edit his best moments together in one video, It makes him look damn good!

57. Vultan - April 22, 2011


Oh come off it, Harry! Don’t play innocent.
Everyone knows you’re the man on the grassy knoll.


58. Vultan - April 22, 2011

Anyway, I don’t think any of us Brooks’ fans are saying the man is the next Lawrence Olivier, but—to me at least—his acting seems to be on the level with the other leading men and women in Trek (except for Nimoy and Sir Patrick, of course. Those guys are in a class of their own).

59. Andy - April 22, 2011

dont be dissing Picard now.

60. Phil - April 22, 2011

@55. Hey, Harry, stop digging that hole you are in. I’m not a fan of Michael Jackson’s music, but I recognize the guy had talent. You didn’t say that you didn’t like his style of acting, you labeled him a no talent hack. Substantial difference.

61. Phil - April 22, 2011

DS9’s Sisko was probably the most developed of ST’s captains. A lessor actor in the same role would have resulted in quick failure of DS9. His performances were a pleasure to watch.

62. Smooth Ballz - April 22, 2011


Vultan, is that your way of saying that I like to shoot my mouth off?

60. Phil, that’s just it. I sincerely believe Brooks is highly overrated. Period.

63. Harry Ballz - April 22, 2011

Sorry, I didn’t mean to post under the name Smooth Ballz.

64. Kryptons First Son - April 22, 2011

Favorite Captain,
Favorite Trek Series,
Favorite TV series ever,
Favorite Trek Episodes

My Favorite. Deep Space Nine… how I miss thee :(

65. Phil - April 22, 2011

@63. Hey, what you choose to shave is your business…

66. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 22, 2011

I do not like the way he acts … I think too extreme for my taste!

:-) :-)

67. sean - April 22, 2011


You’re absolutely entitled not to enjoy the man’s work, Harry. It’s just that you implied he can’t get work, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

68. Amorican - April 22, 2011

Sisko was a lucky man for pulling that Kasidy Yates action.

What’s funny is, as great and perfect as Avery Brooks was in that role, there were still two better actors on that show. Alaimo and Andrew Robinson acted circles around the rest of the cast every time they were on screen.

Brooks brought the ruckus every episode though, and Harry Ballz is wrong.

69. Red Dead Ryan - April 22, 2011


I can’t believe you just exposed yourself on this thread Harry…..

70. Harry Ballz - April 22, 2011


I’m not wrong, it’s simply called having a different opinion.

Can I help it if you have low standards? Some people are so easily pleased.

71. Canon Schmanon - April 22, 2011

At first I had a problem with Avery brooks. He was stiff and seemed uncomfortable. Then came season three (the same season TNG blossomed), and especially the episode The Visitor. That’s the one where Sisko is ripped from our dimension and only comes back to Jake every decade and longer. That’s a terrible description, but it’s a fantastic episode. Avery Brooks and Tony Todd do some fabulous acting in that one, and it was one of the few Star Trek episode that ever moved me to tears.

After that, I saw Brooks differently. I really liked him, and he became my favorite Captain.

72. Canon Schmanon - April 22, 2011

Oh, and Harry – I completely understand your view. I think it’s funny that people want to prove you wrong. Something they don’t understand about OPINION, I guess.

73. Chadwick - April 22, 2011

Oh man that was a great video lol, but you missed one key part. I think its the episode where Jake and Nog try to get a baseball card for Sisko (great episode) they accuses the kai wyne of stealing, Sisko yells at them but when he yells “Get out!” its gold, its solid Sisko shouting gold. You think “damn, don’t burst a vein captain.”

74. Harry Ballz - April 23, 2011

Canon Schmanon

thank you for understanding. I guess common sense ISN’T so common.

75. Phil - April 23, 2011

@72, 74…come on gents, there is a huge difference between opinion and opinonated.

76. Harry Ballz - April 23, 2011


That’s YOUR opinion!

77. Nathan - April 23, 2011

Opinion is one thing; you may not get much out of Brooks’ performance, just like I may not get much out of a fine wine or a Shakespeare play. But when making statements about objective fact, facts which are contrary to reality and in fact simply wrong (as in that Sisko only portrayed one kind of emotion, had no range, that he couldn’t get a job, etc), subjectivity does not apply. They are either right or wrong.

Harry Ballz is wrong. And that is not my opinion; it’s a fact.

Anyway, my opinion is that I greatly enjoyed Brooks’ work on DS9. But his range and his accomplishments are undeniable.

78. Fuba Mushu - April 23, 2011

While I appreciate the resonant baritone nature of Mr. Brooks’ voice, other than when he yelled, I found little variation with inflection and tone during most of his performances as Sisko.

Worse for me, was the stone faced, brain dead facial expressions. The mouth was moving and sounds were coming out of it, but his eyes were dead. No feelings or thoughts; merely a glazed over expression.

79. Colonel West - April 23, 2011

Our good old Harry Ballz being opinionated and just looking to score a reaction from people? Perish the thought! ;p

80. Canon Schmanon - April 23, 2011

It is other people who give Harry his Ballz, so to speak. If you ignored him instead of being sucked into his traps, he’d be like Superman wearing a Kryptonite coat. So stop complaining about him. Though personally I mostly enjoy his antics. Of course, I agree with him most of the time, so that helps.

81. moauvian waoul- aka: seymour hiney - April 23, 2011

“dont be dissing Picard now.”
Yeah, I gotta admit, not a big TNG fan. And though Mr. Stewart was easily the best actor on the show and nearly made it watchable, I found him rather “one-note” and predictable, the rest of the ensemble lacking, and with exception of their jobs, interchangable. I did appreciate Worf’s contribution on DS9 however, as his character was allowed to develop, and like others here have stated, feel that it was the best written of the series.

As for Smooth Ballz, I enjoy reading his posts, …even when he’s wrong. ;). Don’t change baldy.

82. Phil - April 23, 2011

80. Canon Schmanon – April 23, 2011
Gee, I like Harry, he livens the place up, even when his opinion is a lone whine in the desert. If he wants a reaction that bad, I could fart…..

83. Canon Schmanon - April 23, 2011

Phil – How do you fart in this particular forum?

84. moauvian waoul- aka: seymour hiney - April 23, 2011

In space no one can hear you… well, you know…

85. Phil - April 23, 2011

It’s not the hearing you have to worry about….damn gaseous anomaly!!

86. Harry Ballz - April 23, 2011

Phil, would you like some cheese with that whine? :>)

Thanks, guys! I appreciate your kind support! Lively is good!

Well, we’ve gone from flattery to flatulence! It’s been a gas!

87. Phil - April 24, 2011

@86. As long as I’m the one cutting it, I prefer chedder…

88. Harry Ballz - April 24, 2011


Ooooh, that’s just wrong on so many levels! :>)

89. charles charles - April 24, 2011

thats one angry cpt

90. Jai - April 25, 2011

Great compilation. You gotta love a shouty Sisko. Y’know, most people would die if they had that much testosterone ;)

It was missing one notable clip, though, apart from the baseball card incident which Chadwick correctly mentioned in #73, along with Sisko’s Batman-style rasping threat to the terrified forgerer in “In the Pale Moonlight”: From the episode “Apocalypse Rising”, when Sisko was undercover as a Klingon. After beating up a real Klingon, Sisko memorably cut loose by roaring “BRAAAAG all you WANT…But DON’T get between MEEEE and the blood-WIIIINE !!!”.

He’d make a fantastic Klingon in the next movie. Or perhaps (Ben) Sisko’s great-grandfather.

This also the perfect thread to remind ourselves of the famous monologue by Sisko at the end of “In the Pale Moonlight”. I think this episode was one of Avery Brooks’ finest performances on DS9 (and a longer version would have made a superb big-screen Star Trek movie), although “The Visitor” also comes a close second (who can forget Sisko gently watching his elderly son at sunrise, silently waiting for Jake to wake up, on what will tragically be the dying Jake’s last day alive ?)

91. Damian - April 26, 2011

51–I disagree about the relaunch novels. Sisko returned from being with the Prophets, learning new things and a new life. He obviously came back a changed man (imagine spending about 6 months in heaven, seeing the past present and future and coming back, who wouldn’t be changed). It also made a lot of sense in that before he married Kasidy, his “mother” warned him he would only know sadness. It all fit together.

92. kylan daugherty - May 16, 2011

i love it sisko is my favorite captain my fav is the scream/cry in the pilot when he loses his wife it cuts right through you go listen to it sometime is represented by Gorilla Nation. Please contact Gorilla Nation for ad rates, packages and general advertising information.
