Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Only Kira Nerys would risk going to war over an earring. With the witty and wise second-season opener "The Homecoming," the writers started taking chances with the direction of Deep Space Nine--and the payoffs are immediate and far-reaching. It's the first episode in a complex trilogy involving the fate of the tenuous Bajoran Provisional Government, an extremist group called the Circle, and a legendary member of the resistance whom Sisko believes might be able to unite Bajor.

Continuing its blend of action, mystery, intergalactic politics, and religion, the second season gave prominent parts to Jadzia Dax ("Invasive Procedures," "Playing God," "Blood Oath"), Kira Nerys ("The Collaborator," in which Odo gives the first sign of his feelings toward her), the Cardassian Garak ("Cardassians"), Odo ("The Alternate"), Chief O'Brien ("Whispers," "Tribunal"), Commander Sisko ("Paradise"), and Quark ("Profit and Loss"), and Dr. Bashir developed relationships with both O'Brien ("Armageddon Game") and Garak ("The Wire").

Highlight episodes include the alternate-universe "Crossover," which pays homage to the original series' "Mirror, Mirror," and the two-part spotlight on the Maquis (first introduced in The Next Generation), a loose-knit organization of disenfranchised Federation colonists who resort to terrorist methods to provoke a new war between the Federation and the Cardassians. By the end of season 2, the only thing DS9 lacked was a really good villain. It got three for the price of one. Turns out the Dominion (first discovered in the underappreciated Ferengi spotlight "Rules of Acquisition") is a trinity of evil: the Founders, the Vorta, and the Jem'Hadar, those born-and-bred bad guys whose mission in life is to serve the Founders. The season-closer "The Jem'Hadar" is an intelligent, powerful episode that reveals all--and nothing--about the Dominion. --Kayla Rigney

4.0 out of 5 stars Second season picks up steam April 5, 2003
Format:DVD
Although DS9 was still finding its legs, season two demonstrated that DS9 wasn't going to be a Trek knock off. The writing by co-creator Michael Pillar, Ira Behr and others developed a number of key conflicts that would continue to pay off until the series conclusion 5 years later. Conflict is the essence of drama and Ds9 makes the most of the conflict between the spiritual Bajorans, the secular Federation, the xenophobic Founders and the untrustworthy Cardassians.
Oscar Winner Louise Fletcher returns to the role of an evil Vedick and she makes the most of this role. During the second season her character develops more depth. Guest stars such as Frank Langella, Steve Weber, Stephen Macht and others bring considerable acting muscle to the series. Let's not overlook any of the regulars. DS9 had an acting ensemble comparable to TNG in depth and experience.
Politics plays a much larger role in DS9 than TNG. Part of that is the confined nature of a series set on a space station. But DS9 really was always meant to be Casablanca in space to some degree. The complex story arcs began their development here during the second season.
The boxed set (unlike the first season) contains 26 episodes and about an hour and a half of extras that are enlightening but hardly essential. Once again Paramount missed the boat with the DVD reissue of this series. Commentaries from actors, writers and directors would have been interesting and provided an extra dimension to the DVD. Additionally, Paramount has priced DS9 like Trek at a premium....

4.0 out of 5 stars Asian Versions cheaper for a reason... May 5, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For DS9 lovers on a budget, the cheaper asian versions available on the used marketplace are enticing. They are indeed about half the price of the US version. I ordered the 2nd season this way and found it to be actually slightly inferior in quality for viewing, and markedly inferior in packaging even though it was bought new. Several episodes seemed to cut off the last few seconds to squeeze it on to the DVD, and we had tracking problems (slowww) and voice to action synching problems occaisionally. Mind you it got the job done, just not quite there for quality, which can be annoying. The packaging, really bad. The DVD's are stacked in a thin paperboard box with foam sheets between. The box and the DVD's have really bad airbrushed illustrations of something similar to the star's faces. Quite amusing, but not if you just paid for it. My advice is to buy a lightly used US version instead of a "new" Asian one if the money is an issue. I bought a used Season 1 US version and it was perfect, only a small scratch on the box. The DVD's were in perfect shape, and no cut off scenes!

5.0 out of 5 stars DS9 - Second Season hits it stride April 16, 2003
Format:DVD
The second season of DS9 ranks not only as one of the best in the seven year history of this series, but also as one of the best in the entire Star Trek legacy.
Things get off to a great start with the opening trilogy (The Homecoming/The Circle/The Siege), and the rest of the season easily lives up to expectations. The Maquis (two-parter), more Nagus (Rules of Acquisition), three legendary Klingons (Blood Oath), Garak (The Wire), the stirring (Cardassians), a mirror universe (Crossover), the underrated (Necessary Evil), and of course the big-ticket season finale (The Jem'Hadar) are just a few of the standout episodes you'll find contained in this DVD set.
I find the political and spiritual themes of DS9 to be extraordinarily entertaining. The brilliant writers and actors really hit their stride here in season two. I've been on vacation this past week, and have been watching episodes almost non-stop, I enjoy it that much.
Top-notch production values enhance this DVD set, making it even a greater value.
Highly recommended....I can't wait for season three.

3.0 out of 5 stars DS9's weakest season, but still worth buying February 6, 2003
Format:DVD
This season included some great episodes. It starts out with a riveting three-part story about Bajoran society and politics (Homecoming, Circle, Siege) which further develops the Bajoran characters on the show. Invasive Procedures delivers suspense, Armageddon Game is an intriguing look at biological weapons with a subtle built-in irony. Profit and Loss has Quark moving profit down on the priority list (for once) and shows another aspect of Quark.
The best of the set, however, has to be Whispers. An artfully constructed conspiracy story is often underrated and forgotten when fans make top-10 lists, Whispers was the most atypical trek episode that had been produced up to this point. Told in flashback with voice-over narration, Chief O'Brien recalls the steps which caused him to suspect a massive conspiracy. The true power of the episode, though, is in the journey and in a truly inspired twist at the end. The use of subjective point of view filtered through O'Brien keeps the viewer unprepared for what awaits. The set should be purchased because of this very episode.
There are also many episodes that begin long-lasting storylines. The Wire is a mind-bending episode dealing with Garak's sordid past. It also set up one of the best story arcs on the show that would blossom in the following season. The arrival of the Maquis was an infinitely important Trek development, for it not only began a storyline which lasted for several seasons, but also contributed storylines to TNG and made Voyager possible. Crossover brought back the mirror universe from the original series and began a storyline that would continue well into the sixth season. The most important, though, has to be contact with the Jem'Hadar, signalling a metamorphosis in the series and beginning the journey to the show's destiny.
