My Thoughts:
While this is really a series finale... it is also a TV Movie. As it runs for 2 hours on DVD. I would guess with the commercials it ran probably 3 hours when it first aired. This is, in my opinion, one of the best series finales made. An great end to an excellent series. Watching this finale movie makes me almost want to watch the entire series again. So much fun watching it again. You got to love it when a series is ended in the right way... and what better way then a  nice long movie to say goodbye.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
This is a movie that I haven't seen in many years. I last seen this when I was between 13 and 14 years old. That is... Wow... 30 years! But for some reason this film stuck with me through-out all those years... I remember enjoying it so much way back then. Going into it today I was a little worried on how well it would hold up. Ater watching it I found that while it wasn't quite as good as I remembered it being... it is still a fun watch. Worth the time put in to watch it.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Marathon, a review by DJ Doena

Season 7

Disc 1

Image in the Sand
Synopsis: The Siskos have gone back to Earth where Ben works in his father's restaurant. He's still hoping to get an inspiration on how to re-open the wormhole. And then he finally gets a vision about a human female that's somehow linked to his father. In the meantime Kira (who has been promotoed to Colonel) has to deal with the Romulans who want to open a hospital on one of Bajor's uninhabited moons. And Worfs seeks a way to ensure that his wife passes the gates of Sto'Vo'Kor (the klingon heaven).

My Opinion: So Sisko's mother wasn't Sisko's mother? This is a bit of a last-minute revelation, isn't it? Apart from that this was basically just a prelude to the next episode.

Shadows and Symbols
Synopsis: Just as he was about to embark to Tyree where he hopes to find an answer to his vision, Sisko finds himself in front of Dax - Ezri Dax. Ezri never intended to get joined but the Dax symbiont was dying and she was its only hope. So she joins Ben, Jake and Joseph Sisko on their journey to Tyree. And Miles, Julian and Quark have joined a dangerous mission to honour their memory of Jadzia Dax. Worf and Martok plan to take the Rotarran deep into enemy territory where they intend to destroy a ship yard.

My Opinion: So Dax is back. Why? Why did they feel the need to introduce a new character (and that's basically what she is) in the last season? She's a babbling irritant and it will barely get better. And Sisko was conceived by a woman that was inhabited by a Prophet at that time? And he re-opened the wormhole. Hallelujah! Praise the Emissary! :yucky:
But I liked how Kira took a stand with her wing of impulse fighters agains a group of romulan Warbirds after they deceived her. And I liked the destruction of the ship yard - that should ensure Jadzia's entrance into Sto'Vo'Kor.

But it was nice to see that they took the chance to show Casey Biggs (Damar) without a mask:

Synopsis: Ezri, who is a counsellor in training, has a hard time. She has to deal with all the memories of her previous hosts (especially Jadzia's). But she also has to deal with all her - or Jadzia's - friends aboard DS9 and of course with Worf. But she gets distracted when Garak's claustrophobia panic attacks worsen and he nearly jumps out of an airlock "to get some fresh air".

My Opinion: I liked Garak's inner conflict about "betraying" his own people at the same time as I disliked the entire Ezri plot. And Garaks plot was basically written as a story device for her. If this would have been an exception I could live with it but we will see quite a number of Ezri episodes this season. They wanted to give her a proper profile and background but it feels forced. Ezri here. Ezri there.

Take Me Out to the Holosuite
Synopsis: The USS T'Kumbra (an all-Vulcan ship) comes to DS9 and its captain and Sisko have a history. He challenges Sisko on Sisko's very own playing field - baseball. Sisko accepts of course and builds his very own baseball team and two weeks later the holo crowd is looking forward to a game of "Logicians" versus "Niners".

My Opinion: I never cared for baseball but just as Major League this was fun to watch. The huge baseball cap to fit on a Ferengi head or Odo as the umpire or O'Brien's scotch-flavoured bubble gum: great. :) But I would have expected more of Worf. He's a skilled klingon warrior and he can't even hit the ball once? ;)
