Get hyped for DS9

Executive producer Mike McMahan expressed his excitement on Twitter for this week’s episode.

The preview images released today actually don’t show anything about DS9, but one image was shown on the latest episode of The Ready Room. Host Wil Wheaton explained why they didn’t show a full clip, explaining the episode was “so jam-packed with Easter eggs, literally anything we show you would be a spoiler.”

Please let there be a Damar’s Chili Dogs and Root Beer stand :)

Oh man now I want a chili dog!

What’s the joke with Damar and chili dogs?


I’d be glad for any reference to Damar.

I bet Morn will be in this. That guy never shuts up!

*Chants in Bajoran* Please feature Kira! Please feature Kira! Please feature Kira!

Man I can not wait! To see the station again is already thrilling enough. To finally have characters we haven’t seen in canon in 20 years is pretty surreal. It’s crazy out of all the shows, it’s Lower Decks who begins the revival of DS9!

But to let people know, from a review I read at the beginning of the season, there will only be two DS9 characters who actually shows up. It would be nice to have at least 1 or 2 more but I’m just happy to see any of them but keeping expectations in check.

Isn’t that one of the Rules of Acquisition?

Yes, the 190th. Sisko reminded Nog of it when the latter asked if it’s true what he heard about the Romulans having signed a Non-Aggression Pact with the Dominion in “Call to Arms”.

I’m reasonably entertained by this show, overall. Watch it sporadically.

I think my obstacle is that it’s supposedly canon. There’s an incongruity for me.

“The Trouble with Tribbles”-type humor fits into the universe for me. Or… stay with me… consider how Peter Sellers’s Clousseau (Pink Panther movies) was ridiculous but still in the “real world.” I guess I’m saying that ridiculous/funny people and situations in the Trek universe can work for me… think “Friends” in space… but something feels “outside the universe” in LDS so it kinda bugs me that it’s canon.

Example from this post: Things like “Batleths R Us” pull me out of the universe. Funny? Yes. I can go with it in terms of humor. The show is done well, within its own framework. But I have a tough time imagining that storefront just happened not to be caught on camera previously and was there all along.

My $0.02. And I’m not looking to convert anyone to my way of thinking. Just my opinion.


It probably wasn’t there before. Shops are opening and closing on the promenade all the time.

There is also an entire side of the Promenade we never saw on the show.

If possible, I’d recommend watching all episodes consecutively, because particularly in season one, the character of episodes varied considerably. I did not care for all episodes but there were some moments or ideas that stuck with me and were real gold. Also there is character development over the course of the series, in particular season 2, so I’ve come to care for all of them. In some episodes it’s cartoonishly over the top which I don’t like but others are different and had poignant moments too, and the occasional gem of meaning to explore in everyday situations. The best episodes were the ones with truly original storylines not just references, so I am hoping for more of these. So far, season 2 was my favorite.

My guess for DS9 guest voices is Kira and Quark.

I’m going to guess Quark and Bashir. (I think Kira is First Minister of Bajor by now.)

I’m guessing Morn.

I’m torn. On the one hand I would so dearly love it if they finally got Morn to talk, and got Mark Allen Shepherd to give him the voice he was never heard using in DS9. On the other, I understand there are apparently (just) two DS9 stars who reprise their roles in this episode, and I want more than just Morn and one other. But it’d be a scream if we finally heard Morn talk for the first time on this show, more than 29 years after he was introduced.

Give yourself a prize! Right on the money. :)
