bMost series go out like the roach in those old Raid commericals on their backs with legs sticking up in the air. DS9 was an exception to the rule. Pedigree is sometimes telling and, in the case of DS9, it was the grandson of a science fiction film classic; Roddenberry clearly based his characters and the situation of the original Star Trek on Forbidden Planet. Next Generation took that formula to the next level. DS9 was the first major departure from the formula--while it's set in Roddenberry's universe creators Michael Pillar and Rick Berman brought in a much darker element. It fit well.

Season 7 tied up most of the loose ends from the previous six years. As Executive Producer and writer Ira Steve Behr noted, DS9 evolved without any clear cut plan in mind beyond the current season. In many respects, that was the to the series' advantage. Jadzia Dax, Worf's wife and fellow officer, is murdered at the conclusion of season six and it appears that the evil spirits of the Pah-wraith have taken control. The Dominion looks like they will actually win the war and Gul Dukat, Sisko's doppleganger and foe,has over the course of seasons 6 and 7 gone completely insane.

Worf must deal with the loss of his mate and his world continues to crumble as the Dax symbiot returns as Ezri Dax (played by the marvelous and beautiful Nicole deBoer) bring back ghosts he'd thought he had put behind him. Sisko has returned to Earth taking a leave of absence from the Federation to work at his father's restaurant. Image In The Sand opens with Sisko trying to uncover the mystery of his mother's death and his visions. An attempt on his life makes him rethink his isolation from the world.

The seventh season of Star Trek Deep Space Nine is the conclusion of Star Trek's best, richest, most character and plot driven series to date, without exception. Even more so than when The Next Generation was concluded, the sense of the loss of this series for this fan and all of the fans of DS9 was that much more profound, despite the producers, writers and actors extraordinary efforts and the brilliance of this season!
Never before and not since in the history of Star Trek has a series serialized so many portions of its run and from the very early beginnings of the rumors of the Dominion all the way through the final episode in the epic, the entire arc with the Dominion war was prophetic and superior in how it was all set up and concluded.
This incomparable seventh season also brought to the series and the fans the addition of a new character in Ezri Dax. Given that the shows writers had a whole new character to play with and the fact that Ezri turned into such a unusual and wonderful character, many of the seasons early episodes were devoted to her and they were very good shows. High praise goes to Nicole deBoer for her performances during this season.
To make things even better for this season of wrapping up character and plot arcs, the shows producers decided upon and carried out some very different things for the Star Trek universe.

Deep Space Nine's Seventh Season is basically a highlight reel. One show after another sparkles, there are plenty of twists, and, most importantly, the show ends so well. The final arc is truly amazing and makes us remember why we liked the show in the first place.
First off, there is a new Dax host in the last season. Nicole DeBoer plays Ezri Dax in the final season, taking over for Terry Farrell. I always liked the idea of having a new regular character come in before the end to mix things up, and there are a few good episodes devoted to her. "Afterimage" has Ezri trying to get her old friends to accept her; and "Field of Fire" has her enlisting the help of psychopath Joran Dax to catch a clever killer. It was in this episode where we learned how different she was to be from the previous Dax: her readiness to access the twisted Joran part of herself. Also, "Prodigal Daughter" explores her backstory.
All the characters receive a fitting coda. Sisko begins the season confused about his purpose, but wraps up the season fulfilling his destiny. Kira is promoted to Colonel, but finishes up the season as a freedom fighter once again, and ends up in command of the station. Worf has an eventful season, which includes depression after Jadzia's death, nonacceptance of Ezri leading to romance, as well as indignation at Gowron for his purely personal motives in the war. Julian has a couple of run-ins with Section 31 and overall becomes a wiser, more mature person. Garak ends up finally ending his exile, Quark still runs the bar, and Rom becomes the Grand Nagus. All in all, the denouement of the show was perfect.
